Aditya Roy Kapur and Mohit Suri are the perfect actor-director duo. The two have collaborated on 2 films previously – Malang and Ek Villain. And both of them have been successful. Nobody can miss out on the music as well as the dreamy pairing of Shraddha Kapoor and Sidharth Malhotra from the original. Meanwhile, Disha Patani’s groovy moves in 2019 starrer were a rage too!
But amidst all the good news, Aditya has now reportedly opted out of Ek Villain 2. The film was being planned with multiple A-listers. John Abraham and Kapur were the leading men. On the other hand, Disha Patani and Tara Sutaria were cast as the actresses. But looks like there’s a halt in the project now as the former actor has exited the film.
As per recent reports, there were creative differences between Aditya Roy Kapur and Mohit Suri. Everyone knows that Aditya was equally involved even in Malang. The actor quite actively contributes on the creative ends, and that has always worked well between them. However, not this time.
A source close to Pinkvilla reveals the same as, “When Aditya was offered the part, he was extremely kicked about his role and the way Mohit has mounted the action set pieces in the film. It’s even bigger than the way he devised the same for Malang. But in the last few weeks, Mohit and Adi were continuously having creative differences on the script and his role. There was a mutual decision taken by both of them where they finally decided to go ahead with the film, without Adi. There’s no bad blood between the two. They both share a great relationship and parted ways on this film on an amicable note.”
The report further states that Aditya Roy Kapur has bagged another big project. The film is backed by a reputed production house. So, that has been causing issues in the dates as well.
It is indeed sad we won’t be able to see the reunion of Aditya Roy Kapur and Mohit Suri once again. Although, there’s no official confirmation yet, time will tell.
