Aditya Roy Kapur has always been an action fanatic. Whether as an audience or an actor, he has admittedly been drawn towards films which had high octane sequences and dare devil stunts. Earlier this year, Adi broke his lull at the box office with a terrific performance in Mohit Suri's Malang. The film not only did reasonably well at the ticket counters but also established Adi as the new age action hero. 

He was all set to star in another action thriller, the sequel to Ek Villain, starring John Abraham, Disha Patani and Tara Sutaria, but Pinkvilla exclusively revealed that he's no more a part of the project. In fact, there was immense chatter about why he decided to opt out of his mentor Mohit's film. Now, we can tell you why. A source reveals, "Adi has signed another big film. He has been roped in as the main lead for another action thriller. The actor really liked the concept and immediately agreed to be part of the movie."

Just like Malang, the film will have adrenaline pumping action sequences. The informer further adds, "Adi wants to establish himself in the action genre and the makers feel has got the looks, the physique and the technique to master a big action packed role. While details about the film are being kept under the wraps, a Gen-Y heroine will be roped in opposite him." While Adi will finish dubbing for his digital releases Sadak 2 and Ludo, he will gear up to shoot this film as soon as the situation gets a little better. "John's date diary has gone for a toss. He has to shoot for Satyameva Jayate 2 first and finish Attack. He also has a small role in the Arjun Kapoor - Rakul Preet Singh starrer untitled project. So he's not sure when he can chalk out the schedule for Ek Villain 2 and that's why Adi too didn't want to be kept hanging. He also did have reservations about John's role getting more prominence in the two-hero actioner," our khabri signs off.

Why is everyone linking everything to Sushant... Aditya is a really good actor and now that Sushant is dead you are bringing him up every time no matter what the topic is. I know that Sushant was a good actor but you don’t need to suddenly make a connection between them. I agree ☝️ with some here. 1 was replaced by the other not chosen between the 2.

He was chosen over Sushant for Aashiqui 2, Fitoor and Sadak 2. What a big fat joke and makes me wonder what the producers were high on. Only in Bollywood.

Sushant didn't leave Fitoor for Dhoni. Adi's brother who is the producer kept delaying the film and waited for Sushant to back out of the film to give it to Aditya

Stop saying sushant sushant every where bro! Where were you guys when he was alive? Ok sushant was the frst choice of aashiqui 2 but aditya did it soo well you cant deny! Sushant left fitoor for MS dhoni. So what could makers do now? Waiting fot sushan? Sorry bro sushant wasn’t that big star! And he left sadak 2 also! Got it? But Aditya was the first choice of Dil bechara and sushant replace him! Oky thats good nothing to do! But stop spreading negativity until you know the full story

You mean the Siddharth Malhotra whose last six films were flops at the box office? That Siddharth Malhotra? Also, what don't you understand about the fact that Ek Villain 2 is not a continuation of the first film, thus Siddharth cannot play Guru again because the characters are all different?
