Ek Villain was one of the hit films in 2014. It starred Sidharth Malhotra, Riteish Deshmukh and Shraddha Kapoor in lead roles. The film was reported to be a turning point in Sidharth Malhotra’s career as he was lauded for his acting skills.

As per recent reports, it was said that Sidharth Malhotra has turned down to star in the sequel of the film. It was reportedly said that Sidharth Malhotra knew that the villain stole the limelight of the show and he was praised by fans and movie buffs for his avatar, more than the hero.

In the second sequel of the film, it is said that John Abraham has been roped in to play the role of a villain. Reportedly, Sidharth Malhotra wanted to play the role of a villain in Ek Villain 2. But it was said that Mohit Suri did not agree to this casting and therefore Sidharth Malhotra opted out of the film and made way for Aditya Roy Kapur.
