Marjaavaan's first look was released last year in October. Though it did create some stir as the onscreen rivals (Ek Villain) Sidharth Malhotra and Riteish Deshmukh are coming back onscreen in Marjaavaan, but there was absolutely no noise since the first look. However, here's an exciting update for you guys as Riteish will be playing a role of a vertical challenged person in Sidharth, Tara Sutaria and Rakul Preet Singh's Marjaavaan. Checkout the first look of Deshmukh which was released recently. Riteish plays Vishnu, the vertically-challenged antagonist in Milap Zaveri’s next. Just a few minutes back, the leads of the film shared a few posters on their social media handle.
While sharing the photo, Sid wrote, "Teri jaan ukhaadoonga jadh se. Tere teen foot ke kadh se! #Marjaavaan releasing on 22nd November 2019." There's another poster of Riteish where he wrote, "Har cheez ki height bataane ka bahut shauk hai na tujhe. Aaj tujhe pata chalega BADLE ki height kya hoti hai #Marjaavaan releasing on 22nd November 2019." On the other hand, Riteish said, "Tu HERO hai. Main ZERO hoon! Lekin Bandook kitni bhi badi ho, Jaan lene waali goli chhoti hi hoti hai! #Marjaavaan releasing on 22 Nov '19" Check out the posters below:
Another poster read, "Tu Dushman hai Lekin tere liye taali bajaane ko dil karta hai. #Marjaavaan releasing on 22nd November 2019."
While speaking to Mumbai Mirror, Milap said that they knew Riteish wouldn’t agree to do a negative character unless it was something unique. “We decided to make his villain a three-foot-tall but larger-than-life midget with a wicked sense of humour. His Vishnu is arrogant and thinks he is invincible."
Milap further added, "Shah Rukh played a smaller version of himself. We story boarded the screenplay and had a midget gentleman on the set for Riteish to imbibe certain mannerisms and ensure he didn’t go overboard or underplay the physical aspects of his character."
Milap also talked about the technical challenges that he faced during the shoot, "We shot Riteish’s scenes against the green screen and without it for perspective. His eyeline has to match that of others so Riteish shot looking up, while his co-stars looked down. We couldn’t use two-three camera setups for Riteish’s scenes like we did for others. So, every shot had to be taken five times."
The film was earlier slated for October 2 release, but was recently pushed to November 22, admitting that extensive VFX was one of the reasons for it.
