Ekta shared the real story behind the movie, “Mohit told me about the script and I said that the Ek Villain franchise had to be bigger this time. Mohit worked on the script and Rohit Shetty liked it. I then went to Rohit, and I am his sister, so I requested him, and he, very sweetly, like good brothers do, gave me the script back and said that’s yours.”

Ekta Kapoor stated that whoever will listen to the script will like it, She further added, “It has not been made in any other language. I don’t know what Korean Mr KRK is watching. But he seems to know more than I know, I think.”

Ek Villain Returns is all set to release on 29 July 2022. The star cast of the movie includes  John Abraham, Arjun Kapoor, Disha Patani and Tara Sutaria.
