Mohit Suri’s Ek Villain, an intense love story, will soon hit the screens. The director, who has helmed nine projects so far, has always stayed away from typical Bollywood candyfloss romance in his previous outings — be it Zeher, Woh Lamhe, Awarapan, Murder-2 or Aashiqui 2.
Ek Villain, Mohit says, is about forbidden love. “The story revolves around a sweet girl-next-door with fire in her heart and an angry young man hell bent on setting the world on fire. This is an unconventional musical romance born out of angst,” he explains.
The film will also see Sidharth Malhotra and Shraddha Kapoor pairing up for the first time. Says producer Ekta Kapoor, “This is a beautiful tale of aching and longing rooted in reality; it will make you smile and cry at the same time.”
Ek Villain, produced by Balaji Motion Pictures, releases June 27.
