Up until recently, the Sidharth Malhotra-Shraddha Kapoor romance was at the forefront. But with the newly revealed angle of Riteish-Aamna, the confusion is mounting, as there appear to be two concurrently running love stories in 'Ek Villain'.
Says a source, "Several actresses were considered to play Sulochana but Mohit and his team eventually zeroed down on Aamna because her look test was exceptional. There is no doubt that she is a seasoned actress and among the best that Indian television has seen. She was instantly confirmed for the film."
