Sidharth Malhotra & Shraddha Kapoor in 'Ek Villain'

‘Ek Villain’, which is due to release at the end of the month, will see Sidharth Malhotra and Shraddha Kapoor sharing the screen for the first time. The two are currently busy with promotions for the film. Kapoor’s alleged boyfriend, Aditya Roy Kapur, seems to be growing increasingly insecure of the duo’s growing closeness, BizAsia has learnt.

According to Absolute India, at a recent event for ‘Ek Villain’, Kapur entered late and there was an obvious tension between him and Malhotra. A source stated, “Talks about Sid and Aditya not getting along have been doing the rounds for quite some time now. While there wasn۪t any concrete evidence to prove the same, it was very obvious for everyone to notice at the event. Shraddha and Sid, who are currently on a promotional spree for their next film, were spotted entering the event together”.

Continued the source, “They posed for the photographers together too. A little later Aditya walked in but he did not pose for any pictures with Shraddha. He did go up to her and chat but he turned a blind eye to Sid who was standing right beside her. Sid did exactly the same and looked through Aditya. Everyone present noticed the animosity but none of them wanted to bring it up”.

Although Kapoor and Kapur have not gone on record to say they are dating, it seems that Kapur has been a little uncomfortable about Malhotra from when ‘Ek Villain’ went on the floors.
