Mohit Suri’s Ek Villian 2 to have Arjun Kapoor and John Abraham

Mohit Suri’s Ek Villian 2 has been anticipated since quite sometime now. The search for the apt hero was on-going and finally settled at Arjun Kapoor. It is now Arjun Kapoor V/S John Abraham. The film is being produced by Ekta Kapoor and Bhushan Kumar. According to a source, “Mohit’s Ek Villain 2 has four lead characters who are integral to the film’s narrative and take the story ahead. When Mohit Suri announced the sequel to his next film Ek Villain, it turned out to be a huge ensemble. John Abraham, Disha Patani and Tara Sutaria were already locked for the film. Earlier, Aditya Roy Kapur was going to be the other male lead, but owing to creative differences over the script, it didn’t work out. So Mohit was looking for someone and roped in Arjun for the same. Unlike the first part, in this instalment, both John and Arjun play villains.”

We hear that Arjun has been working out rigorously as it will be one of the first few films he starts working for after the situation settles a little. The source adds, “There are several confrontation adrenaline pumping action set pieces designed for both John and Arjun and it includes a mammoth fight sequence as well. Arjun is paired opposite Tara in the film, but the plot is such that there might also be an Arjun-Disha love angle as well.”

The film is scheduled to go on floors towards the end of the year after John finishes work on Satyameva Jayate 2 and Arjun also finishes Kashvie Nair’s next.

We’re pretty pumped up, how are you?
