Mohit Suri’s directorial Ek Villain starring Sidharth Malhotra, Shraddha Kapoor and Riteish Deshmukh released in 2014. The film was a blockbuster at the box office and from the past couple of years, there have been multiple reports about the film’s sequel.

Now, according to a report in a tabloid, Ek Villain 2 will star John Abraham and Aditya Roy Kapur in the lead roles. A source told the tabloid that the sequel won’t be a continuation but a new story. The source added, “It will also have an intense love story at its core. Both John and Adi had heard Mohit’s idea a while ago and were excited to come on board as the premise is something both haven’t explored before. The final narration took place recently, following which the two actors signed the film.”

The makers are planning to rope in a top actress to play the female lead.

The music of Ek Villain was simply fantastic and the songs of the film are still loved by the audiences. The source said, “Music will be a USP in Part 2 as well. Bhushan and Mohit are selecting the songs for the album, which will be locked soon.” The movie will start rolling in the second half of 2020.

Meanwhile, Mohit Suri’s next is Malang which stars Aditya Roy Kapur, Disha Patani, Anil Kapoor and Kunal Kemmu. The film is slated to release on 7th February 2020. Talking about John, he has some interesting films like Attack, Mumbai Saga and Satyameva Jayate 2 in his kitty. It will surely be interesting to watch John and Aditya on the big screen together.
