Aditya Roy Kapur, whose last release OK Jaanu bombed at the box office, has been looking for interesting scripts for a while now. The actor has been regularly meeting friend and filmmaker Mohit Suri, looking for an opportunity. And it looks like there’s finally some development on the front.
“Mohit has a bound script ready, and it’s a Ek Villain’s sequel. He wants to take the franchise ahead with a fresh star cast. Aditya has been approached for the sequel. He has also liked the script too,” reveals a source close to the development.
Ek Villain, the 2014 romantic thriller, featured Sidharth Malhotra and Shraddha Kapoor in lead roles. It also starred Riteish Deshmukh in a negative role.
It will be interesting to see Aditya collaborate yet again with Mohit, after the very successful Aashiqui 2. However, there’s no scope for the film’s leading lady Shraddha to be back in the sequel.
It will be interesting to see which actress will be zeroed in for this project....
