Action-thriller Ek Villain starring Sidharth Malhotra, Shraddha Kapoor and Riteish Deshmukh is rocking the Indian Box Office and is marching fast to join the 100 crore club.
Ek Villain's second week Box Office collection has reached a whooping total of 97.58 crores nett, taking the revene of Rs 2.50 crore on Monday and Rs 2.20 crore on Tuesday.
Directed by Mohit Suri, the film Ek Villain is one of the few Bollywood hits which crossed 75 crore mark in the first week itself and as deserved, Ek Villain has left behind big budget movies like Jai Ho, Holiday and Humshakals as far as the first week collection is concerned.
Now, after the second week collection Ek Villain is moving fast to enter the mark of 100 crore and as a matter of fact, it will become the fourth film of 2014 till date to join 100 crore club after Jai Ho, 2 States and Holiday.
Having released in 2539 screens in the domestic market, Sidharth and Shraddha's Ek Villain has been unaffected by the release of Vidya Balan's Bobby Jasoos and Lekar Hum Deewana Dil.
Although, the business of Ek Villain suffered a setback in the first Saturday, soon the film picked up again in the Box Office.
Ek Villain had a production cost of Rs 40 crores and the film has not only recovered the production cost but has already earned a huge margin of profit.
However, with Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania releasing this Friday, it is assumed that Ek Villain might suffer a jerk in its collection.

Indian Express Review
Suri is an innate story-teller, and can keep things moving. All he needs is a strong, all-the-way credible, original plot.
Mohit Suri's musical Ek Villain despite its flaws keeps you engaged with its tempting score and fine performances.
The Times Of India Review
You cannot fault the scale of Ek Villain or berate its lead star cast. But you wish you could celebrate this thriller like you did Suri's last movie outing Aashiqui 2. This one lacks soul.
The Hindu Review
This contrived battle of psychopaths is going to test your patience.
India Today Review
Even after a lot of flaws Ek Villain is a decent watch but it could have been much better!
