Mohit Suri on Tara Sutaria Role in Ek Villain 2
Tara Sutaria will play the character of a singer in Ek Villain 2. Speaking about Tara Sutaria’s role in the movie, director Mohit Suri told Mumbai Mirror, “It takes a lifetime to get the nuances of a musician, but luckily for me, Tara has been training for this all her life. What more can a filmmaker ask for.” Tara Sutaria, who has been a trained singer since she was seven-years-old, has sung in shows.
Speaking of her talent, Director Mohit Suri said, “A new-age, uninhibited voice which comes from a place of honesty. That’s specifically what my role needs in the film.” The publication also reported a source close to the development as saying, “We have seen a crossover of superheroes and super cops. With this franchise, Mohit Suri is looking to explore the dark side of human behaviour and continue with it in the future.”
Mohit Suri on Aashiqui 3
For the longest, there have been thoughts that Mohit Suri was either working on the sequel of Ek Villain or Aashiqui 3. Mohit Suri said there was ambiguity because he was writing multiple scripts. It means Aashiqui 3 is on the list after Ek Villain sequel.
“I write a lot. So some scripts some actors like. The difference in our country is that people believe an idea is a story, a story is a screenplay, a screenplay is a script and a script with an actor is already a film on floors! There are a lot of elements that fit into place,” he said.
“At one point, I was dabbling with a script of Aashiqui 3. I then worked on Malang movie, then wrote Ek Villain 2, then went back to Malang. So I keep writing a lot. After a string of back to back films till Half Girlfriend, I understood I had stopped writing. So I took this break and just wrote the kind of films I require to make. Malang was one of them,” Mohit Suri added.
Ek Villain 2 Release Date
Balaji Telefilms and T-series jointly produce Ek Villain 2. It will release on January 8, 2021.
