This is not an easy time for Siddharth Malhotra. Heart-throb of the Instagram generation, he may still be,but after the resounding failure of five films in a row Baar Baar Dekho, A Gentleman, Ittefaq, Aiyyari, Jabariya Jodi, one a bigger flop than the other, Siddharth Malhotra seems all set for a turn-around in his career with Marjaavan which releases this Friday.
The Milap Zaveri-directed film features Malhotra on a vendetta spree against Ritesh Deshmukhwho plays a midget. Deshmukh is the first pint-sized villain of Hindi cinema, and pre-release reports suggest he has completely stolen the show with his miniaturized vile act.
However Siddharth Malhotra need not worry. Even if Desmukh is the scenestealer in Marjavaan Malhotra’s role and performance has enough meat and bite to put him back on the map once again.
A sequel to Marjavaan is already being planned where Malhotra’s role would be further developed.
