Recently, it came to light that Abhishek Bachhan is no longer a part of the Malayalam film Ayyappanum Koshiyam remake. Director Jagan Shakti is remaking the film and it has John Abraham and now Arjun Kapoor in lead roles.
A source told Pinkvilla that” John and Arjun are currently shooting for Ek Villain Returns. Both of them have gelled up well on the sets. John discussed the idea of getting Arjun on board the film with his director, Jagan Shakti, who insisted on a meeting with the actor. The two met and set the ball rolling from the word go. While John will play the role of Biju Menon from the original, Arjun steps into Prithviraj’s shoes. The prep work has begun and the film goes on floors by November 2021.”
After replacing Junior B, Arjun Kapoor will be playing the role of Prithviraj Sukumaran while John Abhram will play Biju Menon. The film is suspected to start its shooting in November 2021.
