Filmmaker Mohit Suri brought the franchise of Ek Villain back to the silver screen after eight years. The second installment of the original mystery thriller is set to release this month. Ek Villain Returns trailer was released on Wednesday and gained 30 million views in just 2 days. The chartbuster song Galliyan will also returns in the sequel of the romantic action thriller film.
Galliyan has remained fresh even after eight years and will make a comeback as ‘Galliyan Returns’. The song was hinted in the trailer and since it was released the catchy tune has been ruling everyone’s minds and tongues. People are heard humming the tune reliving the nostalgia of Ritesh Deshmukh’s villainous and Sidharth Malhotra’s intense characters.
Fans of the franchise were teased with the dark undertone music of the evergreen song Galliyan. However, the wait ends as they will get to listen to the reprised version of the mantelpiece soon. The makers have announced the release date of the song ‘Galliyan Returns’ to be 4th July 2022.
Interestingly, in the history of Bollywood for the first time makers of the song director Mohit Suri, singer-composer Ankit Tiwari and Lyricist Manoj Muntashir will reunite to recreate the song.
Commenting on the reprised edition of the song, Mohit Suri said, “I’ve never recreated any song before and for me, it’s as simple as there is no Ek Villain without Galliyan! We knew we wanted to bring back the song but in a way that will take audience by surprise, hence, we decided to collaborate with the same team right from singer, composer, lyricist to the ones who programmed it. Galliyan Returns takes the depth and feel of latter hit a notch higher, can’t wait for you all to give it a listen!”
Singer-composer Ankit Tiwari said on the new updated version of the song, “Ek Villain Returns is darker, bigger, better and full of even more power-packed action than the original. So we had to adapt Galliyan Returns to fit the tone of the film! We have put in a lot of thought to bring out the song in a way that’s dark, yet commercially appealing. We hope you love it!”
Lyricist Manoj Muntashir said, “Galliyaan Returns is a surprise package in itself! The response to the tiny bit the fans have caught in the trailer has already been great and we can’t wait to finally launch it!”
