Talking about the sequel, Mohit Suri had earlier informed a popular publication that both Aditya Roy Kapur and John Abraham will play negative characters. “It’s essentially villain versus villain. Both Adi and John are playing negative characters. We are going to push the bar further with Villain 2. I was an assistant on John’s first film, and we have been trying to work with each other for a while. This script proved to be a great platform for the two of us to come together and I am excited about it. We start rolling in June,” he had said.

Ekta Kapoor confirmed collaborating with Bhushan Kumar for the Ek Villain sequel. “It is always exciting to work with like-minded individuals and people who share the same passion as you. As producers, we are always looking to enhance the experience and entertainment quotient for audiences and the collaboration with Bhushan & T-Series will help us create just that. This association is indeed a mark of a new beginning.”

Bhushan Kumar is also excited about the collaboration. “Ekta and I have previously worked together for the music of her films. I am glad that we are joining hands to produce meaningful cinema and bring to our audiences diverse content. It will be a powerful collaboration and I am hoping we bring to screen some path-breaking stories,” he said.

The project is set to begin production in mid-2020 and it will release on January 8, 2021.
