Mumbai, June 26 (): Director Mohit Suri says the story of Ek Villain, his upcoming Bollywood release is based on forbidden and prohibited love. Previously, Mohit Suri has directed films like ‘Woh Lamhe’, ‘Murder-2?, ‘Aashiqui-2, ‘Awarapan’ and ‘Zeher’.
The 33-year-old, Bollywood’s youngest veteran director, is nine movies old already and this movie too is bearing the typical trademark of Suri.
In a press release, Suri had said that Ek Villain had spoken of a love that was not destined to be. The story is around the next-door sweet girl with fiery feelings filled in her heart and a young angry man who will set the fire of love in the film. He added Ek Villain is an unusual musical romance that arises out of anguish.
In this movie, Mohit had not selected a typical Bollywood romance story. He says black and white characters are ordinary; their film discovers the grey line in each character. Love has the immense power to make a beast a human and to make a good individual a beast. The type of love that comes in one’s life determines its progression.
Mohit asks does not a bad man feel bad or does not he feel jealous, feel love? Is not the hero the villain of a villain’s love story?
Balaji Motion Pictures’ CEO Tanuj Garg says Ek Villain is a remarkable showdown of a cat-and-mouse game. It interlaces high drama with emotions and romance.
Producer of Ek Villain, Ekta Kapoor said that the upcoming romance movie is a stunning tale of longing and aching deep-rooted in reality – the theme that would make one cry and smile at the same time.
Ek Villain stars Shraddha Kapoor, Sidharth Malhotra and Riteish Deshmukh in essential roles and the movie is slated to release this Friday on June 27.
Bollywood had seen many new screen pairings recently, but the fresh Sidharth – Shraddha combination in Ek Villain has induced unprecedented eagerness among the youth audience. Trade experts are betting on this new couple as they will surely be the torchbearers of Generation X romance.
