After finalizing the cast and title for his next, director Sriram Raghavan now plans to recreate the golden 90s era of Bollywood in a song sequence. This special track will have cues taken from different tracks from that era featuring Huma Qureshi and Varun Dhawan.
The number will be inspired by songs like 'Tip Tip Barsa Paani' (Mohra), 'Rangeela Re' (Rangeela), and 'Ek Do Teen' (Tezaab) . Being a lover of Bollywood since childhood, an excited Huma revealed that she has already started to watch Raveena Tandon, Urmila Matondkar, and Madhuri Dixit's dance moves as a preparation for the song. The film will see Huma playing the role of a prostitute and Varun will play a character with grey shades.

Not many know but the title ‘Villain’ did not originally belong to Balaji. While the film was under production, the title was being used provisionally.
However director Mohit Suri, the writers and producers (Balaji) were extremely keen to have that title for their Sidharth Malhotra-Riteish Deshmukh-Shraddha Kapoor starrer as they felt that it was extremely powerful and relevant to the subject.
Confirms Tanuj Garg, CEO – Balaji Motion Pictures, “Rajiv (Rai) is a dear friend. When I requested him for the title, he consented immediately. He wasn’t planning to produce or direct any film with the title and gave it to us.”
‘Ek Villain’ releases in cinemas worldwide on June 27.
