Mohit Suri is in a happy space right now. His latest film Malang (2020), starring Aditya Roy Kapur, Disha Patani, Anil Kapoor and Kunal Kemmu in important characters, has been performing steadily ever since hitting screens on 7th February. While Malang is inching closer to be another hit on his resume, Suri has moved on to his next project.

The filmmaker is gearing up to start work on Ek Villain 2, a sequel to his 2014 musical hit Ek Villain. While the original film starred Sidharth Malhotra, Shraddha Kapoor and Riteish Deshmukh in lead roles, Ek Villain 2 boasts the presence of John Abraham and Aditya Roy Kapur on its cast.

Suri recently revealed a little about his forthcoming directorial outing. “Ek Villain is different from Malang in the sense – although it has a suspense quotient – it is going to be a lot more massy with stronger love story and it has more action and larger action stuff with a bigger franchise but eventually it will have the feeling of a broken heart which both villains and heroes also feel,” said the filmmaker who made his debut with Zeher in 2005.

Rumours have been rife lately that actress Kiara Advani has been finalized to play the female lead in Ek Villain 2. However, when Mohit Suri was asked about the same, he said that no actress has been confirmed as yet.
