Starring John Abraham, Arjun Kapoor, Disha Patani, and Tara Sutaria in the leading roles, the trailer for Ek Villain Returns was released by the makers on Thursday, June 30. From the trailer, the Mohit Suri directorial shows a serial killer on the loose and promises to be an action-packed thriller with the suspense being kept intact on who's the real villain among the four main leads.
Ek Villain Returns is the spiritual sequel of Mohit's 2014 suspense thriller, Ek Villain which starred Sidharth Malhotra and Shraddha Kapoor as the two lovers whose lives are devastated when the villain Riteish Deshmukh murders Shraddha's character. The film was an unofficial remake of the Korean thriller I Saw The Devil.
The upcoming film's trailer also features the reprised version of the superhit track Galliyan, which was a major factor in Ek Villain succeeding at the box office. The 2014 film also had other amazing songs in its soundtrack such as Banjaara, Awari, and Hamdard, and thus, people have sky-rocketing expectations from the Ek Villain Returns album too.
