If Jabariya Jodi saw him letting his hair down like never before in a colourful character, Marjaavaan is set to be his angry young man outing, what with Sidharth Malhotra stepping into a violent zone. As a man who lives for love and then fights for love, Sidharth is already gearing up for his most massy entertainer till date where filmmaker Milap Zaveri has taken a holds-no-bad approach when it comes to presenting him like never before.
Says an insider, “Given his towering personality, Sidharth was getting quite a few action packed roles in the past as well. He has done action in films like Brothers and Ek Villain as well. However it was more catering to the class audience with a method to madness. It’s quite different in Marjaavaan. This one would see Sidharth in a ‘seeti maar’ avtar. He was waiting for something like this coming his way where he could bash up dozens of goons in one go and still make it all look possible.”
What further added to Sidharth’s decision making was a strong love story element that was the genesis of it all.
“As is the known fact in a Hindi film, action works best when there is emotion. Here you would see ton loads of that as Sidharth not just falls in love with Tara Sutaria but also kills her, and that too while carrying her in his own arms. That’s an unbelievable situation to be a part of and makes the love story all the more intriguing. Sidharth was hooked when he heard this twist in the tale,” a close associate adds.
To top it all, he was promised by the team of Marjaavaan that music would form a core part of the narrative and that ensured that as a package, this Nikkhil Advani, Monisha Advani, Madhu Bhojwani and Bhushan Kumar film seemed pretty much like a winner on the table. Rest was taken care of the out and out massy promo which also featured Riteish Deshmukh as the villain who brought an altogether different dimension to terror and for Sidharth Malhotra; it was time to announce game, set and match.
With mass films being a rare commodity today and such kind of meaty characterisations being much hunted, one now waits for the arrival of Marjaavaan next Friday and in turn witness how Sidharth has made the best of the opportunity in hand.
