On the other hand, the Milap Zaveri-directorial Marjaavaan, which also stars Tara Sutaria, Riteish Deshmukh and Rakul Preet Singh, features Sidharth Malhotra as a larger-than-life hero who breaks bones and utters dialogues that reminds of the Angry Young Man image of Bollywood's retro era. He is seen as a hotheaded young man who falls in love with a girl who cannot speak. 

In its first week, the film collected Rs 2.53 crore on Thursday, taking the overall collections to Rs 37.87 crore. Here's what Taran tweeted:

Marjaavaan is expected to perform well at the box office in the coming days as well.
