Riteish Deshmukh on difference between his characters in ‘Ek Villain’ and ‘Marjaavaan’
Riteish Deshmukh, who is known for his comic timings and films, garnered much praise for essaying a negative character in ‘Ek Villain’.
The actor is all set to impress his fans yet again with his negative streak in MIlap Zaveri’s ‘Marjaavaan’. He recently opened up about how his character in ‘Ek Villain’ is very different from his character in ‘Marjaavaan’. He reportedly said that his character ‘Rakesh Mahadkar’ in ‘Ek Villain’ is the boy next door who is easily forgotten in a crowd. But his character ‘Vishnu’ in ‘Marjaavaan’ is a 180-degree turnaround from that.
Elaborating further, he added that Vishnu is vertically challenged, but larger-than-life, arrogant and brash. According to Riteish empathy is the key to portraying troubled characters.
He also reportedly added that he tries to find the emotional core. He needs to understand why he is the way he is. According to the report, Riteish’s character has been inspired by the fifth avatar of Lord Vishnu, Vamana, and this connection is also mentioned in one of the lines in the trailer.
The Milap Zaveri directorial also stars his ‘Ek Villain’ co-star Sidharth Malhotra in the lead role.
The film also stars Rakul Preet Singh and Tara Sutaria as female leads.The film is slated to hit the theatres on November 15, 2019.
