According to media reports, John Abraham and Aditya Roy Kapur are probable names for Mohit Suri’s Ek Villain 2.
Whilst no official announcements have been made, there are conjectures that the sequel will be an absolutely different story and will have no connections to the first part.
A source close to these developments has revealed that Bhushan Kumar could be joining Mohit in making this sequel.
The film is being touted as an intense love story at its core and will have John and Aditya pitted against each other.
In conversation with a Mumbai-based newspaper, the source reveals:
“Both John and Adi had heard Mohit’s idea a while ago and were excited to come onboard as the premise is something both haven’t explored before.
The final narration took place recently, following which the two actors signed the film.”
Even though Ritesh Deshmukh was loved for his performance in the film, Ek Villain was also widely loved for its music and songs.
While music is certainly a USP of Mohit Suri films, fans will certainly be expecting the same from the sequel too.
Affirming that music will be an important aspect of the film, the source further conveys:
“Music will be a USP in Part 2 as well. Bhushan and Mohit are selecting the songs for the album, which will be locked soon.”
Official confirmations are keenly awaited.
