Sidharth Malhotra, Shraddha Kapoor or Riteish Deshmukh – Who is the real baddie in Ek Villain?

Here’s looking at the various conspiracy theories doing the round about who’s the villain in the film

Ever since the trailer and poster of Ek Villain got out, there have been numerous speculations about who’s playing the villain in the film. Ek Villain starring Shraddha Kapoor, Sidharth Malhotra and Riteish Deshmukh has been in the news cause of the various theories about who’s playing the baddie in the film. With the film’s release only two days away, more theories and rumours are coming up. Let’s take a look at the most spread theories about Ek Villain’s real baddie. Is it Riteish, Shraddha or Siddharth, who is the villain ? We take a goes…

Riteish Deshmukh: Since the trailer was out, the first theory was that Riteish is the villain in Ek Villain. It was because of his sly grin at the end of the trailer video and in the poster. He was even quoted saying, “I have enjoyed exploring the alternate side of me.” When director Mohit Suri was asked about Riteish as Rakesh in Ek Villain, he had said, “There is something evil about a person who is so regular and ordinary. Rakesh’s character lurks in the shadows. He isn’t loud and in-your-face, but his mere presence can be unnerving.” Rumours were doing rounds that Riteish kills Shraddha in the film, following which Sidharth kills Riteish’s wife, played by Aamna Sharif. Is it true? We know not!

Sidharth Malhotra: The chocolate boy of B-town is donning a rather rugged look in Ek Villain. In the trailer and promotional videos of Ek Villain, we have seen Sidharth delivering some deadly dialogues. In an interview, he was quoted, “I was doing Hasee toh Phasee when Mohit offered me the film. In just one line he said that the film would be a love story of a bad person, who is considered a villain in the society for his bad deeds. It was tough to get into all the angry emotions and intense look. I have taken out all my 29 years of frustration, be it parents issue, career or struggling days in this film.” Rumours suggested that Sidharth kills Riteish’s wife in the film and the latter is trying to get vengeance by killing Shraddha, who plays Sid’s love interest in the film. Whether Sid is playing the villain, we don’t know yet, but his character sure has grey shades.

Shraddha Kapoor: Recently, when a promo video was out, Shraddha was seen donning a hoodie. Suddenly, there was a new story doing the rounds that Ms Kapoor is playing a baddie in Ek Villain. While the earlier theories suggested that Shraddha gets killed in the film, the latest one stated that Shraddha will emerge as the villain in the end of the film. Shraddha’s grey side too is visible in one of the videos.

With so many possibilities and chances, the speculation will end soon when the film releases on June 27 and we find out the real villain!
