Mohit Suri’s Ek Villain featuring Sidharth Malhotra, Shraddha Kapoor, and Riteish Deshmukh was a roaring hit. After Suri confirmed a sequel to the film early this month, TV czarina Ekta Kapoor has taken to her social media handle to confirm the film and its release date too!
Posting a picture of herself and producer Bhushan Kumar, Ekta has confirmed that the film will be releasing on the 8th January 2021. Captioning the image, Ekta wrote, “When the first thing u both say Is ‘JAI MATA DI ‘ Looking forward to up the entertainment quotient with @bhushankumar! Starting with the sequel of 2014 blockbuster – #EkVillain! The second instalment will release on Jan 8, 2021!

Meanwhile, it was a few weeks ago that Suri had confirmed to have approached John Abraham and Akshay Kumar to play the leads for the sequel. The Malang director revealed, “Mohit has said that he has narrated the story to both the actors have they have both, loved their respective parts of the film. Suri spoke to PTI saying, “We have narrated it to John, Adi and they both have liked their parts. Both are playing the ‘villains.’ Now we have to cast the girls. I can’t just take anyone. They play important roles. There will be two girls.”
While we are certainly excited for the sequel to be out, do let us know what you feel about the same.
