As per the current trend, T-Series’ production is expected to score decently on weekdays after a considerable drop in footfalls due to normal working days & of course neutral word of mouth.
In Marjaavaan, Sidharth plays a larger-than-life hero who breaks bones and utters dialogues that reminds of the Angry Young Man image of Bollywood’s retro era. He plays a hotheaded young man who falls in love with a girl who cannot speak. Marjaavaan also features Tara Sutaria, Riteish Deshmukh and Rakul Preet Singh.
