Ek Villain starring Sidharth Malhotra, Shraddha Kapoor and Riteish Deshmukh which was released in 2014 was a massive hit back then. Movie buffs not only loved the film but it’s music rocked the chartbusters. Well, director Mohit Suri is now gearing up to cast the same magic as he is coming with the sequel, titled, Ek Villain Returns. The film stars John Abraham, Disha Patani, Arjun Kapoor and Tara Sutaria. Just some time back, Disha, John, Arjun and Tara have shared pictures on their Instagram accounts, informing them about kickstarting the shoot.
Disha shared a picture of herself wearing an ‘Ek Villain’ hoodie and wrote, “And here we go #EkVillainReturns” Her rumoured beau Tiger Shroff, his mother Ayesha Shroff, producer Ekta Kapoor and more have sent the team the best of luck. The film is also directed by Mohit Suri and produced by Bhushan Kumar’s T-series and Ekta Kapoor’s Balaji Motion Pictures. The film’s mahurat moment was shot at Mumbai’s Gaiety Galaxy theatre, assuming the first scene of the film features both John and Disha.
Excited about the shoot, Mohit Suri said that he had been waiting to begin Ek Villain Returns for a long time now, but the plans got hampered due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic. “I am very excited to begin shooting for Ek Villain Returns. I was waiting for this day for a while now. Unfortunately with the pandemic, things went off-track but now I am glad we are back to where we belong – making movies! I am hoping to recreate the Ek Villain magic with this one,” as quoted by Indian Express.
This would be Mohit Suri’s first collaboration with John, Arjun and Tara while he is reuniting for the second time with Disha after Malang.
