Arjun Kapoor In Ek Villain Sequel

Ekta Kapoor and  director Mohit Suri  are  now planning a  sequel to their very successful  2014 crime thriller Ek Villain where Siddhath Malhotra and Shradha Kapoor were tormented  to  breaking point by  villain Ritesh Deshmukh.

Yes, the affable Deshmukh actually played a coldblooded serial killer in Ek Villain. We would  now have  Arjun Kapoor playing the title role in a sequel. Arjun  is ready to step into the  dark zone with Ek Villain 2( no, the  sequel won’t be titled Do Villain).

But it is doubtful that Siddharth Malhotra,as much in need of a hit as Arjun Kapoor, would continue with his protagonist’s role in Ek Villain 2 , as  the  antagonist’s role has  proven to be  a scenestealer in  the  first film. The same is the case  with  the Dhoom series where every major star wants to play the  antagonist.

Says a source, “Ekta Kapoor wants to turn Ek Villain into her  production house’s Dhoom franchise. The problem  here is , who will  play  the  formal hero when  the villain has the author-backed  role?”

 Mohit Suri who directed  the  first  Ek Villain is back on the  saddle.Suri and  Arjun Kapoor have   quite  a rapport going between them ever since they collaborated on  the  screen adaptation of Chetan Bhagat’s 2 States. Kapoor who is  busy withAshutosh Gowariker’s historical Panipat  will  get into this project  next year.
