If fans loved her demure character in Aashiqui 2, girls went gaga over his lover boy in Hasee Toh Phasee. Now, Shraddha Kapoor and Sidharth Malhotra are coming together in Ek Villain.
The first look of the movie, earlier titled The Villain, has just been released, and it’s hard to take the eyes off the couple for their sizzling chemistry. A rugged-looking Sidharth is a far cry from his suave persona seen so far on screen, while Shraddha doesn’t look much different.
The first look of Ek Villain is no less than a visual treat for the fans of Sidharth Malhotra. The handsome guy dons a rough-tough look for the film and has got fake tattoos and real stubble to look the part. Is he the villain in the film?
Talking about his character, the actor said, “For Villain, I had to experiment with my look. I have a slightly different hairstyle. I sport a beard as well as tattoos, and had to even bulk up a little. As my character is aggressive and intense, hopefully, the audience will see me in a different light. The character has a lot of emotional baggage. You’ll see the difference between the sweet lover boy I’ve played earlier, and this aggressive man.”
Well, we count on you, Sid! The movie, directed by Mohit Suri, is a love story but with a twist. Both Shraddha and Sidharth play characters with slight shades of grey, and that makes the movie interesting.
Produced by Ekta Kapoor’s Balaji Motion Pictures, the movie also stars Riteish Deshmukh, Amrita Puri and Kamaal Rashid Khan in pivotal roles. June 27 is the release date.
