Aditya Roy Kapur, whose last release OK Jaanu bombed at the box office, has been looking out for some interesting scripts for a while now. The actor has been meeting his friend, filmmaker Mohit Suri, for a while now, looking for an opportunity. And it looks like there’s finally some development on the front.

“Mohit has a bound script ready, and it’s a sequel to Ek Villain. He wants to take this franchisee ahead with a fresh star cast. Aditya has now been approached for the sequel. Interestingly, he has also liked the script,” reveals a source close to the development.

Ek Villain, the 2014 romantic thriller, featured Sidharth Malhotra and Shraddha Kapoor in leading roles. It also starred Riteish Deshmukh in a negative role.

It will be interesting to see Aditya collaborate yet again with Mohit, after the very successful Aashiqui 2. However, there’s no scope for the Aashiqui 2 leading lady Shraddha to get back on the Ek Villain sequel train. It will be interesting to see who the actress zeroed down for this project will be.
