It is likely to star Sidharth Malhotra, who played the lead in the first instalment. Since the film was among Ekta’s production house’s most successful projects, she wants to take the franchise forward. It was written by Milap Zaveri with the screenplay by Tushar. Since Milap is busy with Satyamev Jayate, his first directorial venture, Tushar, Sidharth and Mohit have been meeting frequently to discuss the script. As soon as it’s locked, Mohit will finalise the rest of the cast. The sequel will obviously not star Shraddha Kapoor or Riteish Deshmukh, as their characters died in the first part.” (Also ReadSidharth Malhotra to train in martial arts for next)

Ekta has expressed a desire to make a sequel to Ek Villain, but there’s no script yet. I am jamming with my writers and brainstorming to come up with a concept. It may be a love story. Tushar has a great mind, so I often bounce my ideas off with him.”
