Mumbai: Recent reports stated that ‘Ek Villain’ sequel is on the cards, and that director Mohit Suri is ready with the script, the latest being that he is planning to cast Kriti Sanon with Sidharth Malhotra.
When asked about the same, the director told Mid-Day, "I've heard that I am making ‘Ek Villain 2’ and that I already have a bound script which has been given to Aditya (Roy Kapur). But nothing like that is happening. ‘Ek Villain’ is a Balaji Telefilms property and they haven't approached me yet."
While he cleared that, Mohit also added that his next will see him reuniting with his ‘Aashiqui 2’ star. "Yes, I am working with Aditya. It will be a thriller," he said, pointing out that he is most comfortable with the genre. "My earlier films like ‘Murder 2’ (2011) and ‘Kalyug’ (2005) were also in the same genre," added Mohit.
A 2014 release ‘Ek Villain’, also directed by Mohit Suri, starring Sidharth with Shraddha Kapoor, was a super hit. The movie was produced by Ekta Kapoor’s Balaji Motion Pictures, and on the grand success, Ekta had even hosted a bash at her house.
