After news over the weekend about Abhishek Bachchan opting out of the ‘Ayyappanum Koshiyum’ remake, it has now been reported that Arjun Kapoor will be replacing the superstar.
With the way things stand, Kapoor will now have face off against John Abraham in this two-hero action thriller, according to PinkVilla.
A source told the publication, “John and Arjun are currently shooting for Ek Villain Returns. Both of them have gelled up well on the sets. John discussed the idea of getting Arjun on board the film with his director, Jagan Shakti, who insisted on a meeting with the actor. The two met and hit the ball rolling from the word go. While John will play the role of Biju Menon from the original, Arjun steps into Prithviraj’s shoes. The prep work has begun and film goes on floors by November 2021.”
The source added, “However, their character traits are completely different in the two films and one will be surprised with their chemistry on screen.”
