The film is scheduled to release in less a week, ie on 29th July 2022, and the ground level promotions of the film are in full swing.

As Ek Villain Returns releases tomorrow, have a look at 6 on-screen serial killers who really left the fans spooked.

1. Bob Biswas: Bob Biswas is one of the most mysterious characters of Bollywood. This character managed to intrigue viewers with his brief appearance in Vidya Balan’s Kahaani. The character of Bob Biswas got a movie of his own, years later, titled by his name, which premiered on ZEE5. The role was essayed by Abhishek Bachchan and he won numerous accolades for his performance.
