The trailer of Milap Zaveri directorial, 'Marjaavaan' featuring Sidharth Malhotra, Riteish Deshmukh, Tara Sutaria and Rakul Preet Singh was released a few days back and it has already received over 20 million views on YouTube. While the trailer is 3 minute and 15 seconds long, a lookalike of Abhishek Bachchan was spotted by a fan that comes exactly on the 2:18 timer in the video. A user on Twitter wrote that he was happy to see the 'Manmarziyaan' actor on-screen.
Replying to him, Bachchan in his best witty and humourous way wrote that he worked really hard for this in the gym and later clarified that it is not him in the movie. Riteish Deshmukh who plays an antagonist in the film, replied to Bachchan and called him 'big brother'. For those unaware, Bachchan and Deshmukh have worked in a few films together like 'Housefull 3' and 'Bluffmaster'. Read the tweet here -
Thank you! Went full #beastmode in the gym for this one. 😂— Abhishek Bachchan (@juniorbachchan) September 27, 2019
Jokes apart. That’s not me!
But wish the entire team of #Marjaavaan all the best. Looking great. @Riteishd @SidMalhotra @zmilap @nikkhiladvani https://t.co/YIySCIt7hJ
WHO IS THE LOOK-ALIKE?
The man who looks like Abhishek Bachchan in the film is Varinder Singh Ghuman. He is an Indian professional bodybuilder and wrestler from Punjab. Ghuman has won Mr. India in 2009 and he was awarded 2nd place in Mr. Asia. He has been roped in by Arnold Schwarzenegger for promoting his health products in Asia as his brand ambassador. His Instagram bio also reads as - World's first pure vegetarian bodybuilder.
The shooting for the film began on December 7, 2018. The official poster for the film was shared by Sidharth Malhotra on social in October of 2018. The poster initially indicated a release date of October 2, 2019. However, the film was later pushed to November 2019 so as to not clash with Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff starrer War. This news was revealed when the first new poster was shared. The second poster was posted online on September 3, and it also informed fans that the movie’s release date had been preponed. Now Marjaavaan is set to release on November 8, 2019.
