Ek Villain Returns trailer - Sidharth Malhotra, Shraddha Kapoor fans miss them in the sequel: 'No one can replace them'
After the release of the Ek Vilaain Returns trailer, the fans of Sidharth Malhotra and Shraddha Kapoor from the original express their disappointment.
The Ek Villain Returns trailer dropped on Thursday and the sequel to the 2014 surprise hit has gone darker and more intense with John Abraham and Arjun Kapoor leading the film with Disha Patani and Tara Sutaria . While the trailer did manage to entice the viewers, there is whole fans base of Sidharth Malhotra and Shraddha Kapoor ’s pairing from the original and they aren’t too pleased with the replacements.
Several fans of Ek Villain registered their displeasure on Twitter after watching the Ek Villain Returns trailer and wondered why the makers couldn’t do the sequel with the original cast. Sidharth Malhotra fans in particular missed seeing the original villain in the project with others also displeased at the departure of Riteish Deshmukh from the franchise.
Ek Villain is Sidharth’s only 100 crore grosser at the box office to date and there’s certainly some loyalty that the fans have to his performance in the film. However, according to reports, Sidharth did turn down the sequel when he was approached for it.
The actor after a bunch of flops bounced back in a big way playing Captain Vikram Batra in the digital release Shershaah and fans of the actor can’t wait to see him in his upcoming actioner Yodha and the ensemble comedy Thank God .
Meanwhile, the Ek Villain franchise is turning a new leaf and has scaled up on all fronts with Ek Villain Returns which has Mohit Suri returning in the director’s chair. The trailer also got a thumbs up for a large section of the audience who are excited to see Arjun and John go head-to-head with one another.
The Ek Villain Returns trailer makes it impossible to guess who the villain from the four leading members of the all-new cast. The film through, picks up from right where the original ended but that’s about all in terms of familiarity.
