Trade experts do believe that EVR is performing better than expected, and it’s a remarkable feat in such a crucial phase of Bollywood. Sumit Kadel wrote on his Twitter, “#EkVillainReturns with a LT (lifetime total) of Rs 40 cr+  would be an avg affair but certainly it has turned tables for #ArjunKapoor as an actor. #EVR will do 2-3 times more LT biz than films like Anek, Jayeshbhai, Jersey, Attack etc which were led by big stars. This is no small feat this year.” 

Here’s the tweet

In Ek Villain Returns, Disha has shed all inhibitions to perform some sizzling hot, intimate scenes with her male co-star John Abraham. Ever since the trailer of Ek Villain Returns dropped, Disha and John’s steamy scenes have been the talk of the town. Recently at the film’s promotional event in Delhi, when Disha was asked about filming intimate scenes with John Abraham and how comfortable was she shooting it, she said, “See who am I doing these scenes with… John Abraham! It was very comfortable with Mohit sir (Mohit Suri, director) being around, and with John and the entire team at every point. I have no complaints at all.” 

Meanwhile, producer Ektaa R Kapoor was asked about Kamaal R Khan’s allegation that Ek Villain Returns is a copy of a South Korean film. To this, the producer replied that Suri narrated her two scripts that he had developed. “Let me tell you the truth about this movie. Mohit had narrated two scripts to me. I told him that the ‘Ek Villain’ franchise has to be much bigger this time. He then told me that Rohit Shetty liked this script a lot and he has taken it.” Ek Villain Returns was released in cinemas on July 29.
