"Bollywood has always been adamant on creating a unique experience for a villain's character, but a romantic sequence by a villain can only happen in the modern times," Shakti said.

"As the trend is changing, and the villains are disappearing in this modern cinema, an actor has to be very versatile and good with every role," he added.

Agreeing with his thoughts Gulshan said: "Cinema has taken acting to a whole new level, we don't see anyone playing a dedicated role of a villain in modern movies. So, keeping the changing trend in mind, the actors have to be good and engrossed with all the roles."
