Ever since Mohit Suri announced the sequel to his 2014 superhit Ek Villain starring John Abraham and Aditya Roy Kapur in the lead, fans naturally entered into the zone of excitement. While the lead actors of the action-thriller were announced a while ago, the mystery behind the leading lady built the right amount of curiosity. Now, as per the latest development, the lead actress is already in talks with the makers to replace Shraddha Kapoor in the sequel.
According to reports, the makers of Ek Villain 2 are said to be in talks with Kiara Advani as the female lead opposite Aditya and John, who will showcase shades of grey and traits of an anti-hero. In the previous film, Shraddha starred opposite Sidharth Malhotra and Riteish Deshmukh and played a crucial character for the narrative to take shape. Well, if Kiara is roped in, let's gear ourselves to watch a fresh pairing on the silver screens.
