In January, Mohit Suri had confirmed the sequel of Ek Villain with John Abraham and Aditya Roy Kapoor. Both actors will be seen in villainous avatars in the flick. Now comes another interesting piece of information about the casting of Disha Patani.

On being asked why he signed Disha for another high on action film, Suri said that Disha is the first heroine who walked up to him and said that she wanted to do more action, beat up people, perform stunts and kick some butt. Just the way boys do it in his films. She wanted to be the hero. That's when he asked her if she would do the Ek Villain sequel and she was game.

Mohit Suri had revealed in an interview that the plot of the movie requires two leading ladies. Meanwhile, the search for the second female lead is still on, Disha Patani has signed the project on the dotted line. Interestingly, she will be paired opposite John Abraham instead of Aditya Roy Kapur as the makers are trying to give the film a different twist by pairing them together. Ek Villain 2 releases on 8th January 2021.
