Disha Patani seized Ek Villain Returns with both hands when it came her way because she had been able to transcend the glamorous girl image in her most recent works. The actor confirmed that she is uncomfortable with a grey role. However, the actor admits that she genuinely enjoyed the prospect of playing a female antagonist in the movie, starring Tara Sutaria, John Abraham, and Arjun Kapoor.

During an interaction with Mid Day, the actor said that it doesn't matter if one is a man or a woman; all have shades of grey. It's critical that films reflect the fact that there can be more than just all-white heroes and heroines. According to her, no guy or woman is ever good.

The film, directed by Mohit Suri, is a follow-up to the popular Ek Villain (2014), starring Riteish Deshmukh, Sidharth Malhotra, and Shraddha Kapoor. In the upcoming thriller about a woman-targeting serial killer, Patani portrays the ruthless Rasika. She regards avarice as a virtue. She uses guys to help her fulfil some of her life's needs. The first step to playing her character honestly was to comprehend her intentions.

The Malang actor shared that one can't play the part if they can't relate to it. She wished to make certain that she was moving in the appropriate direction. Patani watched a number of movies in the genre and made an effort to act the part honestly, and Mohit was her constant support. She has always been reluctant to take the shot.

Meanwhile, Patani was last seen in Radhe, featuring Salman Khan in the lead role. The Prabhu Deva directorial will be released in 2021 in selected theatres, ZEEPlex channel, and ZEE5.

Ek Villain Returns, which T-Series and Balaji Telefilms co-produced, is scheduled to hit theatres on July 29.
