Ek Villain Returns team is busy promoting their upcoming film. Producers Bhushan Kumar and Ekta Kapoor were joined by the cast at Inox cinema hall in Delhi on Monday. After Mumbai, John Abraham, Arjun Kapoor, and Disha Patani went to Delhi to promote their movie. The Villain Returns to the silver screen after eight years.
All the actors are seen playing grey characters in the film. Talking about the same John and Arjun shared their thoughts. Interestingly both the actors have kickstarted their careers playing grey characters in Jism and Ishaqzaade as their respected first films.
John Abraham said, “Even my character in my first film ‘Jism’ had grey shades, then ‘Zinda’, ‘New York’ was a different kind of grey for me, then ‘Taxi No. 9211’. So, I have done several such films. And, I think normal is boring. In this film, in particular, the characters have so many different shades. And, when I watched the film, I found it very interesting. And, I think the audience will enjoy it. Also, it’s not just about being a villain, it’s about their journey and how they faced problems that changed them or impacted them.”
Adding to the same, Arjun Kapoor said, “I have played a grey character even in my first film ‘Ishaqzaade’ but ya, in this film, my character wants to be dark and his ideology is that he can die but not lose. And, he is okay being a villain in people’s lives. So, for me, it was the extreme version of grey and that’s taking things to a whole new level for me.”
