Majority of Mohit’s films tend to step into a slightly dark zone. Therefore, right from ZEHER to AASHIQUI-2, Mohit has seldom presented a feel-good side of the world. This has been the case in EK VILLAIN, which could well be a discomforting outing for anyone, especially when living a role for months at stretch.

“Can you imagine,” says Sid in mock horror, while adding, “There I was, promoting HASEE TOH PHASEE one day and shooting EK VILLAIN on another. It wasn’t easy to be switching on and off in quick time. In fact on one instance I remember requesting Mohit for a three day break as I needed to mentally collect myself before facing the camera again for EK VILLAIN.”
“Having said that, it wasn’t discomforting but being conscious of doing something new. I was more concerned that I had not done anything like this before, which was occasionally alienating. It isn’t something that I could have come up with just like that; I had to bring in new emotions. There is a new dark side of mine that I explored in EK VILLAIN. When you watch the film, you will realize how it is all coming together in the context of the story,” he says.
Well, it would be all on display once this Balaji production arrives this Friday.
