The team had also been ecstatic about the fact that it went houseful one day in Gaiety Galaxy theatre. The film had also been doing well in single screens and mass pockets. Talking about signing the film, Tara Sutaria had told News18Showsha, “Since Mohit was making the second part, I felt safe in the knowledge that he made the first film (Ek Villain; 2014), and so, who better than him to make this one? On a very basic level, I knew that Arjun (Kapoor), Disha (Patani), John (Abraham) and I would fit even if we remove the story. It’s very important to have that intuitive feeling about the entire unit working together in tandem.”
