Balaji Motion Pictures�۪ Sidharth Malhotra, Shraddha Kapoor and Riteish Deshmukh starrer ��Ek Villain�۪ had a title change prior to the release of its first still. The working title of the film was ��Villain�۪ and for anyone who was as confused as we were about the slight change, the answer lies with Arjun Rampal.
There is, of course, no association to Rampal of ��Ek Villain�۪ but, according to Bollywood Hungama, that the actor hold the rights of the name ��Villain�۪. Instead of buying the rights from him, ��Ek Villain�۪ producers apparently chose to take the easier route of changing their film�۪s name a little and therefore, the title ��Ek Villain�۪ was arrived at. Rampal, apparently, has been toying with the idea of making a film with that title for some time.
��Ek Villain�۪ is slated for release on 27th June.
