Sidharth Malhotra and Riteish Deshmukh have collaborated for the second time on screen for Marjaavaan. The revenge action-drama film is currently running at the box office, bringing in stable numbers over the first weekend. Though the critical reception has been negative for this film, mass audiences have reportedly enjoyed the typical masala factor of the film calling it a complete entertainment package. Riteish and Sidharth were seen previously in Ek Villain which released back in 2014. Interestingly, Marjaavaan did not reach the first-day collections of Ek Villain even after two days of being released. It will be interesting to see whether Marjaavaan will come close or go past the collections of their first collaboration on-screen.

Marjaavaan's performance at the box office

Both Riteish Deshmukh and Sidharth Malhotra have struggled to give a hit at the box office in recent years. Though Riteish's franchisal tie films like Masti, Dhamaal, and Housefull have been loved and celebrated by the audience members, his solo outings have been evidently rejected. His releases like Bank Chor, Banjo, and Bangistan were big misses at the box office, registering minimum audience footfalls.

Sidharth Malhotra, on the other hand, hasn't delivered a hit film since Kapoor And Sons which released back in 2016. Malhotra was seen in a string of flop movies since 2016, even though some of his films were received well by critics, they were rejected by the audience members. His films like Aiyaary, A Gentleman, Baar Baar Dekho, and Jabariya Jodi were flops at the box office. Sidharth Malhotra evidently requires a big blockbuster after a list of flops. With Marjaavaan, Sidharth has reportedly impressed many fans as they liked his rogue avatar in the film. It took a huge leap on Sunday at the box office earning 10 crores. The film's performance on weekdays will prove crucial to judge its overall run at the box office.
