The Real Reason Aditya Roy Kapur Opted Out Of Ek Villain 2



Surprisingly,  Aditya Roy Kapur whose last  hit Malang was  directed  by Mohit Suri has opted  out  of the same director’s   next film Ek Villain  2, presumably because  the  ‘villain’ John Abraham’s role  was shaping up far stronger than  the  ‘hero’ Aditya Roy Kapur ’s role.

They share a great relationship and parted ways on this film on an amicable note.It  wasn’t as if  the script  for Ek Villain  was ready and then Aditya Roy Kapur  ditched the project at  the last minute.
