One of the main reasons we’re looking forward to Ek Villain is Riteish Deshmukh – it is a never-before-seen avatar for him, and the industry chatter is that he’s really knocked it out of the park with this one. Of course, a lot of it depends on his characterisation, and from the looks of it, the team has decided on something special to really make him ‘stand out’. Wondering what that is?
In this recent behind-the-scenes video, director Mohit Suri recounts the difficulty they had in finding a quirk for Riteish’s character, since, on the surface, he’s supposed to be your normal, everyday guy. Mohit decided, therefore, to give him a genetic difference – his quirk is that one of his eyes is hazel, while the other is hazel-green. Interestingly, the green is actually supposed to depict the evil side of his character.
