Ek Villain success soared up and crossed Rs.100 crore mark at the box office and brought a sigh of relief to the film’s leading lady
Released on June 27, EK Villain, which came out of producer Ekta Kapoor’s stable, crossed Rs.100 crore mark at the box office. If people liked Sidharth Malhotra and Shraddha Kapoor as the lead pair, they equally appreciated Riteish Deshmukh in his villainous avatar. “As an actor, it’s extremely relieving to receive positive response from the audience,” said Shraddha, whose last film Aashiqui 2 was a blockbuster too.
“The film has done really well at the box office, which gives you a lot of confidence to do more films. I have been celebrating the success of the film from day one when it opened well at the box office. I am feeling extremely relieved,” she added.
Interestingly, director Mohit Suri helmed both Ek Villain and Aashiqui 2. “I am fortunate enough to have got an opportunity to work with Mohit. He is a dear friend and a gem of a person. It’s always a pleasure to work with him because he has a clarity on whatever he is doing,” said the actor.
