Though Sidharth and Shraddha’s chemistry in the film have become the talk of the town, it is however, Riteish’s negative role as Rakesh that has made the masses go crazy due to which there is a boost in the income of the movie at the box office.
Ek Villain is in week two now and is facing competition from 2 films – Vidya Balan’s Bobby Jasoos and Armaan Jain’s Lekar Hum Deewana Dil. But going by the numbers, it’s likely that Ek Villain collection will get affected massively as the film still holds a strong word of mouth.
