Riteish will play the role of a malefic dwarf

Tseries uploaded a poster of the movie on Instagram, featuring Riteish Deshmukh and Sidharth Malhotra. We can see Riteish as a dwarf and behind him is a massive figure of Ravana with ten heads. Milap, in an interview stated, “We decided to make his villain three-foot-tall but larger-than-life with a wicked sense of humour. His Vishnu is arrogant and thinks he is invincible.” Riteish was not very keen on working again as a villain, so the director decides to tweak the character into a dwarf.

Other actors who tried putting on and pulling off smaller shoes

Filmmakers keep experimenting with their characters. It is always interesting to see the actors showing their versatility. In the past, a few of the Bollywood actors have tried to pull off the character of a dwarf. Here are a few who played a dwarf in the movies.

Kamal Hasan

Kamal Hasan played the role of a dwarf in his well renowned 1989 movie Appu Raja. He played the role of twins in the movie, separated at birth. One of them is a dwarf, and the other one is a normal-sized human. He also played the role of their father in the same movie. Although this was not enough for the star as he went on to act in a film called Dasavathaaram, where he played ten different roles. 

Anupam Kher

In Jaan-E-Mann, Anupam Kher experimented with his role. Mr Kher received a lot of attention for this role. Anupam Kher is hilariously comical in some of the roles he played over the years. His character in Jaan-E-Mann was equally appealing.

Shah Rukh Khan

Shah Rukh Khan played a dwarf called Bauua Singh in his 2018 film Zero. While it was a fun character, it failed to charm the audience. The film was not as big a hit as expected despite extensive promotion and an exceptional star cast. Anushka's character was also a rather interesting one in the film.

What do you think about the character, and will Riteish be able to pull it off this character? Let us know in the comment section below.
