Actor Arjun Kapoor mentions Ek Villain Returns is comeback of sorts in that slightly more

Actor Arjun Kapoor mentions Ek Villain Returns is comeback of sorts in that slightly more mainstream, action film which I enjoyed shooting . Now, as he says, he is progressing, maturing and navigating a new phase of his career with projects such as Mohit Suri directed upcoming hit franchise Ek Villain Returns (co-starring John Abraham, Disha Patani and Tara Sutaria, slated to release on 29 July), Kuttey, a dark comedy (with Tabu, Radhika Madan, Konkona Sen Sharma, Naseeruddin Shah), and suspense thriller The Ladykiller (co-starring Bhumi Pednekar). Kapoor, in a candid, no-holds barred exclusive interview talks about his “macho” versus “soft, vulnerable” image, working with action hero John Abraham, and armed with a vast knowledge on film business, the actor opens up on North Vs South debate giving a fresh perspective in the current scenario where regional (South) cinema are leaving Hindi films far behind in the competition at the box office.

The 2014 film Ek Villain was a smash hit at the box office, so can one expect the sequel a few notches higher in terms of content, drama, etc? If you see the trailer you can see it is taking the film to another level because it is not a pure romantic revenge drama in that sense, there are a lot more twists and turns, there is a lot more in the plot in terms of what each character is bringing. In the first one also there was a slight demarcation about who is who. You knew this is Sidharth’s character, this is Riteish and this is Shraddha, you understood from the trailer that there is a sense of revenge between Sid and Riteish but in this film you can’t really sense that. So we have gone a couple of notches higher and that is the ability that Mohit Suri has. He can take you into the same world, the characters have that evilness, madness and pain because of love. The main thread that ties both the films together is the choices you make because of love, the extent and how far you can go for love without being perceived as villain is the question that you can see as an answer in our film.
