Shraddha took extensive training to master bike riding and while shooting in Goa even took Mohit for shoot to the set on a bike.

Few know that Suri was inspired by his actress wife Udita Goswami.

Confirmed Mohit, “My characters always have an edge or something unusual about them. I wanted to introduce Shraddha differently in the film. Ten years back, I was shooting Zeher with Udita. We were put up in a small boutique hotel in Goa when she asked for a car. In those days we didn’t have major budgets. She borrowed a Bullet belonging to a hotel worker and rode it. I had never seen her like that. I decided that this was the girl I wanted to be with. So that’s where I got the idea of Shraddha’s character of a wanderer.”

The Villain is under production and is expected to release in mid-2014. It also stars Sidharth Malhotra and Riteish Deshmukh.
