Mohit says, “Ek Villain speaks of a love that wasn’t meant to be. The 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.”
From all the new screen pairings, the fresh Sidharth and Shraddha combination has evoked unprecedented excitement amongst the youth. Trade pundits are gambling on this couple being the torchbearers of romance.
Suri, who is, at thirty three, Bollywood’s youngest veteran, is already nine films old.
Some of his earlier films like Awarapan, Zeher, Woh Lamhe, Murder 2 and Aashiqui 2, are evidence of his school of romance, which keeps away from roses and candy floss. In a time where run-of-the-mill romantic comedies are abundant, Suri’s cinema continues to depict romance in its intense, haunting and raw form.
Concludes Ekta Kapoor, “Ek Villain is a beautiful tale of aching and longing rooted in reality; one that will make you smile and cry at the same time.”
Starring Riteish Deshmukh, Sidharth Malhotra and Shraddha Kapoor, Ek Villain releases in cinemas on June 27, 2014.
