Starring Aditya Roy Kapur, John Abraham, Disha Patani and Tara Sutaria in principal characters, the sequel will be called Do Villain. “The film was earlier titled Ek Villain 2. But now it is called Do Villain. It makes sense for this new title as it is the part 2 of the franchise. Also, as Mohit said while announcing the film that it is about a fight between bad versus worse, and in other words a tale of villain versus villain. He also confirmed that both Aditya and John are playing negative characters. As a result, the team decided to zero in on Do Villain as the title,” a source close to the development tells a publication.

The source goes on to add, “It is an exciting idea. After Do Villain, Mohit might come up with Teen Villain and Chaar Villain. And then all of them will come together, Avengers-style! It is praiseworthy that he is thinking of something new, that too in the commercial cinema space.”
