Aditya Roy Kapur Replaced By Arjun Kapoor but Conditionally

Shooting   for  Mohit Suri’s  next project ,a sequel  to his  2014  film Ek Villain is not going to be easy,  what with John Abraham ensconced  into the    strong author-backed role .So strong is  John’s  character  of  the  ‘Villain’ that the ‘hero’ Aditya Roy  Kapur  opted  out  of the project  .

Arjun  agreed   to come on  board  only on condition that his  role be made stronger.

An informed  source  reveals, “In Ek Villain  Riteish Deshmukh’s villain’s act  was so powerful  that  it completely overran Siddharth  Malhotra’s heroic act. In  Ek Villain 2  Aditya Roy Kapur didn’t see  his  character making much of an impact. After teaming  up with  Mohit Suri for his career-making  author-backed  turn in  Aashiqui 2, Aditya  didn’t want to  play a  second fiddle to John Abraham.”

It remains to be  seen how  the  protagonist’s role has  been strengthened  in Ek Villain 2  in order to  persuade Arjun Kapoor to hop on board  because,really, Suri’s  Ek Villain series is  about the  villain, not the  hero.
