Malang seems to have created a buzz among the audiences since its release, earlier this year. With the film faring reasonably well at the box office and on digital, director Mohit Suri already announced a sequel on the papers and will be bankrolled by the same producers – Bhushan Kumar, Luv Ranjan and Ankur Garg as well. They had dropped a major hint about it in the end credits, and Pinkvilla exclusively told you that Malang 2 will feature Shraddha Kapoor in the leading role.
Now, reportedly it is decided that Aditya or Disha won’t be cast in the second installment. A source tells us, “They are going to have a fresh on screen pairing for part two. They are very clear about it. Shraddha was already told about Malang 2 when she was brought in to do the little voiceover. Now, they have decided to not repeat the leads. They might come in for cameos, but the leads will be different.”
The media report also states that the makers have decided to rope in “Sidharth Malhotra,” for the lead role and they are waiting for the end of lockdown to offer him the role. The source, who’s also very involved with the production, asserts, “Sidharth is on top of their list. They are waiting for the lockdown to get over to pitch it to him. Mohit has just finished the script and since he has a good relationship with Sid, he will take it forward from here.”
In the recent past, the director of Malang 2 took to Twitter to share a picture of his first draft of Malang 2. The first page titled as Malang 2- Unleash The Madness of his draft can be seen on his laptop. He captioned the picture as, “To make a great film you need 3 things: The script the script and the script – Alfred Hitchcock #Malang #firstdraft #malang2”.

On the work front, Mohit Suri will resume shoot for Ek Villain 2 initially, while Siddharth has two films lined up – The Thadam remake and Thank God, also starring Ajay Devgn and Rakul Preet Singh. We hope Sid gives his nod to the project, then this will also be a comeback for the Ek Villain trio – Sid, Mohit and Shraddha again.
