Riteish Deshmukh's unassuming aam aadmi look, with a sinister streak in Ek Villain, has the audience intrigued with the actor's bold never-seen-before avatar.

After keeping his character under wraps so far, director Mohit Suri, basking in the glory of Aashiqui 2, spills the beans. "There is something evil about a person who is so regular and ordinary. Rakesh's character lurks in the shadows. He isn't loud and in-your-face but his mere presence can be unnerving."

On casting Riteish Deshmukh for Rakesh, Suri continues, "He was my first and only choice; not for what he had done but for what I thought he was capable of doing."

Adds Riteish, who will be seen in the brand new Awari song from the film, "I play a middle-class family man, frustrated by the unfair treatment meted out to him from every corner of society. Playing Rakesh has been the most exciting choice I have made in my career. It's a radical departure from what I've done and I've enjoyed exploring the alternate side to me!"

With Sidharth Malhotra also being touted as the villain in this musical romantic thriller, the speculation about the identity of the real villain continues. "Anyone could be the villain. That's for you to watch and find out!" smiles the director.
