Actor Sidharth Malhotra says he is happy that people have accepted him as an action hero once again with “Marjaavaan“.
The film, which took an opening of Rs 7.03 crore on Friday, remained steady on Saturday and minted Rs 7.21 crore.
“‘Ek Villain‘ and ‘Brothers’ introduced me as an action hero. I did not cater to this audience and today I am happy that they have given this kind of response to ‘Marjaavaan’,” Sidharth said.
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. The Milap Zaveri-directed “Marjaavaan” also features Tara Sutaria, Riteish Deshmukh and Rakul Preet Singh.
The dashing actor will next be seen in filmmaker Vishnuvardhan’s directorial Shershaah.
Sidharth in the film will be seen donning the role of an army officer. Shershaah is a biopic based on life of Indian army officer Captain Vikram Batra.
The Sidharth starrer has actress Kiara Advani as the film’s leading lady.
The biopic is been proeduced by Karan Johar under Dharma productions and is slated to release in 2020.
