Post the success of Malang, we saw Mohit Suri making the announcement of his reunion with Aditya Roy Kapur and Disha Patani with the sequel of Ek Villain, which is tentatively titled Do Villains. While we were quite kicked about this film as it also features John Abraham and Tara Sutaria in pivotal roles, reports came out that Aditya Roy Kapur backed out of the project due to creative differences. And now the reports says that the Fitoor actor quit the project as John Abraham’s character was overpowering his role in the film.
As per the PinkVilla report, a source close to the development said, “Adi didn’t like how John’s role was overpowering his in the film. Like the title suggests, both of them play bad men or villains in the film. Every character has its importance but Adi was of the opinion that John has a meatier part and he wasn’t quite happy about it. He seemed insecure of his positioning in the film.” Reportedly, Aditya and director Mohit Suri, had a conversation on this topic. “They both spoke about it and Mohit even assured Adi that he will get equal footing in the film. But he was adamant that the script be tweaked to increase his role and action scenes. After a few weeks of debates and arguments, both of them, who are like brothers, decided to not jeopardize their personal equation and mutually agreed to part ways on the film,” said the source. While the other source told the entertainment portal, Adi has signed another big project. The schedule of Do Villains went haywire because of the Corona outbreak. Right now, John is also going to be busy finishing his other films that he’s committed to – Mumbai Saga, Attack and Satyameva Jayate 2. So they don’t have any particular schedule or dates locked for the shoot yet. Adi had to choose between Do Villains and the other big film, and he decided to choose the latter.”
The film is produced by Ekta Kapoor and Bhushan Kumar under the banners of Balaji Motion Pictures and T-Series. While the film was scheduled to release on January 8, 2021, but there are high chances that it will get delay at the box office due to the pandemic situation of coronavirus.
