On Friday, Marjaavaan joined Ayushmann Khurrana's comedy Bala, which has had an undisputed box office run so far and has made Rs 76 crore in over a week. Marjaavaan also clashed with another comedy Motichoor Chaknachoor, starring Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Athiya Shetty on Friday.
Actor Sidharth Malhotra, whose last few films failed to make a mark at the box office, recently said in an interview: "I look at it from a learning point of view. Even massive superstars of the country can't predict the future of their films. It's a part and parcel of the business. I have a lot of gratitude that I am a working actor. You can't let your previous Friday affect your coming Friday," reported IANS.
Directed by Milap Zaveri, Marjaavaan marks actress Tara Sutaria's second Bollywood release.
