Mumbai, Sep 26 (IANS) “Ek Villain”, the surprise hit of 2014, had actors Sidharth Malhotra and Riteish Deshmukh pitted against each other. Cut to 2019, the two are back in “Marjaavaan” standing up against each other and engaging in stunts and packing punches. The trailer of the film that released on Thursday will take many back to 2014.
Apart from the two actors being foes in the new movie too, the unmissable reference to “Ek Villain” in the trailer is “Galliyan” — the popular song of the 2014 film. The over-three minute trailer also shows actress Tara Sutaria’s character getting killed, similar to what happened to Shraddha Kapoor’s character in “Ek Villain”.
“Raavan ke dus sarr ke liye ek teer hi kaafi hai?? #MarjaavaanTrailer out now.@Riteishd #TaraSutaria @Rakulpreet @zmilap @nikkhiladvani @marjaavaan,” Sidharth tweeted along with the link of the trailer.
