Actor Riteish Deshmukh who is all set to play a villainous role in the upcoming film Ek Villain, says that he will be a villain in the film with a love back ground.
Riteish for the first time will portray the role of a villain in Ek Villain and says that unlike other films, here the villain will have a reason to become villain.
"Since childhood I have been a fan of iconic villains like Gabbar and Mogembo but these characters did not have any reason to be villain. But in Ek Villain I have a reason to become villain and the reason is love," said Riteish.
He further added, "Sidharth also appears to be a kind of villain in the film but he has a positive wipe about his role and I will be a villain with grey shades."
In the film Ek Villain, Riteish will be seen in a totally different avatar and he is very excited to see how the audience responds to his new character.
