The second film in the Villain franchise will be produced by Ekta Kapoor’s Balaji Telefilms and Bhushan Kumar’s T-Series.

According to a report by Pinkvilla, Tara has been spotted at a recording studio in Mumbai with composer-singer Ankit Tiwari and director Mohit Suri for a while now. It is because Tara’s role in Ek Villain Returns will require her to sing and that is the reason why she has been attending these sessions.

Earlier, it was reported that John Abraham and Aditya Roy Kapur are the male leads of the film. However, the official launch of the movie saw Aditya being replaced by Arjun.

Speaking about the film, Mohit Suri had mentioned in the past that the second instalment would essentially be a Villain vs Villain film.
