After the 'Humshakals' debacle, Riteish Deshmukh will be seen in a totally new avatar in his next film 'Ek Villain'.
He will play the role of Rakesh who turns a psychopathic killer due to non-acceptance from his wife. However, in reality Riteish has found a perfect wife in Genelia D'Souza. It was infact at Genelia's behest that he decided to take up a challenging role in 'Ek Villain'.
Genelia wanted hubby Riteish to play a dark character, even before 'Ek Villain' was offered to him. The film directed by Mohit Suri starring Sidharth Malhotra and Shraddha Kapoor will release on June 27.
