Story highlights

Directed by Mohit Suri, ‘Ek Villain Returns’ is the sequel to the super hit thriller film ‘Ek Villain', which was released in 2014. 

After a long wait, the makers of the upcoming thriller film ‘Ek Villain Returns’ unveiled the first-look posters of John Abraham, Arjun Kapoor, Tara Sutaria, and Disha Patani on Monday. As the first part of the film, ‘Ek Villain', completes eight years on Monday, the makers unmasked the first looks of the stars.

In the posters, the star cast of the film can be seen donning a dark and intense look, showing their villainous avatars. Each star is holding up a yellow smiley mask, a symbol of the franchise.  

Sharing the same caption, the ‘Ek Villain Returns’ star cast wrote: "In the world of Villains, Heroes don't exist! And #EkVillain is back after 8 years. Beware #EkVillainReturns on 29th July." 

The posters read, "Heroes don't exist," along with the release date of the film. In all four posters, the only thing that can’t go unnoticed is the mask being held by Tara, as her mask is the only one with star eyes, whereas, in all the other three posters, the masks are with round eyes. 

Soon after the posters were out, fans showed their excitement for the much-awaited sequel and dropped comment sections with heart and fire emoticons.
