The suspense thriller Ek villain returns released today and is expected to get off to a good start. Starring John Abraham, Arjun Kapoor, Disha Patani, and Tara Sutaria, the director of Mohit Suri reportedly has quite a few surprises and twists to the story. Interestingly, this aspect begins at the very beginning of the film, during the disclaimer slate.
REVEALED: Here’s why Rohit Shetty and Kanika Dhillon were thanked in Ek Villain Returns
Several people were mentioned under “Special thanks”. However, two names stand out – blockbuster director Rohit Shetty and acclaimed author Kanika Dhillon Kedarnath (2018), Rashmi rocket (2021) and the upcoming one Raksha Bandhan and Dunki Fame. The reason these two names are attracting attention is because they have never collaborated with Mohit Suri. Also, her cinema zone is different from Mohit Suri’s.
Bollywood Hungama has learned that Mohit Suri has been signed by Rohit Shetty’s production house, Rohit Shetty Productions. Mohit was supposed to do the film with the same script as Ek villain returns with Rohit. But it shouldn’t be below that Ek villain Franchise. Meanwhile, producer Ekta Kapoor was scrambling to write a script for Ek villain‘s sequel. As she happened to read the script of Mohit Suri’s Next with Rohit Shetty, she realized that it would be appropriate for the sequel to her 2014 smash hit starring Sidharth Malhotra, Shraddha Kapoor and Riteish Deshmukh.
Ekta Kapoor is the Rakhi sister of Rohit Shetty. She approached Rohit and asked if he could give her the script rights so she could do it Ek villain‘s second part. Rohit Shetty agreed without hesitation. And that’s how Mohit Suri directed the story, but with Ekta Kapoor’s Balaji Telefilms and T-Series, and it was called Ek villain returns.
Interestingly, Ekta Kapoor spoke about this episode in a recent press interaction when asked if Ek villain returns is copied from a Korean film, according to a self-appointed critic. She spoke highly of Rohit and said so when she asked him to Ek villain returns‘ script, he “very sweetly, like good brothers do, gave me back the script and said that’s yours.”
Kanika Dhillon wrote additional dialogue in the sequel. That’s why she was mentioned under “Special thanks”.
