Bollywood celebrities like Karan Johar, Alia Bhatt and Parineeti Chopra are all praise for Sidharth Malhotra’s next film “Ek Villain” and said it will likely be one of the year’s biggest hits.
At a special screening hosted by Sidharth on Wednesday, filmmaker Karan Johar praised director Mohit Suri to make an outstanding film. “I was lucky to see Mohit Suri’s face first following the film ended and he is the biggest star of the film. I hugged and told him you have made an outstanding film,” the 42-year-old said.
The film, which also features Riteish Deshmukh and Shraddha Kapoor, has been produced by Ekta Kapoor under the banner of her production house Balaji Motion Pictures and Karan feels that it’s going to be its biggest hit ever.
“There are extremely few films that have romance, action, thrill and also the most important of all there is a solid emotion within the film which makes you cry. At times your heart even cries for that negative character. It is so brilliant. I believe this is going to be Balaji films’ biggest hit,” added Karan.
Mohit’s cousin Alia Bhatt also feels that the former will surpass his earlier success “Aashiqui 2? with “Ek Villain.”
“It is definitely an outsanding film and I just told Mohit that I think it is going to be a bigger hit than ‘Aashiqui 2′. Riteish, Sidharth, Shraddha are amazing,” said Alia.
Sidharth’s “Hasee Toh Phasee” co-star Parineeti Chopra sees a large hit in “Ek Villain.” “I loved it. I was for Sidharth and Shraddha. But Riteish and all of them were so good. I understand this film is going to be a big hit,” said Parineeti.
“Ek Villain”, that’s set to release Friday, also stars Aamna Sharif featuring an item song by Prachi Desai.
