EXCLUSIVE: Arjun Kapoor to play a villain in ‘Ek Villain 2’?
Arjun Kapoor is definitely on a roll. Despite his last film ‘Namastey England’ not working well at the box office, the actor has already been signed on for as many as four films. He has three films lined up including ‘Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar’, ‘India’s Most Wanted’ and ‘Panipat’, that are releasing this year and is already in talks for his immediate next, ‘Ek Villain 2′.
Well, you read that right. Our source has given us a tip-off. “Arjun is talking to Balaji for a big film. It’s the Ek Villain sequel which will be a completely different set-up and cast from the previous one. But the core idea remains the same. It will be a two-hero revenge drama yet again which is expected to go on floors in the later half of 2019. Mohit Suri is expected to return as the director for this one too,” confirms Bollywood Bubble’s exclusive source.
But the interesting point is something else. “Arjun won’t be playing the hero. Instead, he will be essaying the role of the main villain, just like Riteish Deshmukh did in the first part. Given that Riteish received the most praises last time, a similar thing can be expected this time. And Arjun also must have given it a thought before saying yes to it. The contracts are being readied and the team is fine-tuning the story. But it will most definitely happen, unless there are some sudden changes,” the source adds.
It will sure be interesting to see Arjun play a villainous role for the first time and we are sure he will nail it.
