Ek Villain Returns trailer: John Abraham and Arjun Kapoor have an intense face-off over the blurred lines of good vs evil; Tara Sutaria and Disha Patani show inherent villainous traits


The trailer of Ek Villain Returns starring John Abraham, Arjun Kapoor, Disha Patani and Tara Sutaria in the lead was unveiled today at a launch event in the city. All the four lead stars were present at the launch including producer Ekta Kapoor. The trailer opens with JD Chakravarthy taking us down the memory lane of the villainy that was paramount in the first film and we get to see a glimpse of Riteish Deshmukh as the serial killer in Ek Villain.

The trailer of Ek Villain Returns shows a killer on the loose who is out to kill women who do not reciprocate their stalker’s affections. We also get to see some close face-offs between John and Arjun where it is difficult to ascertain who is the villain and who is the hero. On the other hand, the women of the film, Disha and Tara are also no less and have some menacing traits inherent in their personalities as well which becomes a game changer as the trailer ends.

Can’t wait till the film is finally yours!”

Talking on the occasion of the trailer launch, actor John Abraham said, “When I read the script of Ek Villain Returns, I knew it was what I wanted to do because it was like a homecoming for me.

During the event, Arjun, John and Tara donned black outfits while Tara looked pretty in a short white and black dress. They all posed with the yellow signature masks from the film.

Speaking about the trailer, actor Arjun Kapoor said, “Action is my absolute favourite genre! The script of Ek Villain Returns has easily been one of the most powerful and gripping action thrillers that I have come across and Mohit Suri has brought it alive on canvas in an even bigger way! A lot of hard work has gone into this film and we hope you enjoy it!”

Talking about the film, actress Disha Patani said, “Most of my films have been action thrillers but when I say that you haven’t seen anything like Ek Villain Returns, I mean it! We have done our best to keep you on the edge of your seat and the trailer is only a sneak-peek into what’s to come your way! Beware – you have been warned!”

Speaking about Ek Villain Returns, actress Tara Sutaria said, “Collectively, the music team, Mohit and I, on Ek Villain Returns, have tried to create music that is the highlight of the film. Everybody that has watched the film and the trailer so far feels the same and we can't wait to share it with you very soon!"
