New Delhi: Sidharth Malhotra, who will portray a grey shade in his upcoming romantic thriller ` Ek Villain`, said that playing a grey shade was very therapeutic for him, as it helped him take out his anger of the past 29 years of his life.

Malhotra who was in New Delhi along with his co-star Shraddha Kapoor to promote the film, told reporters, "It was very liberating, there was full freedom to break things, scream at people shout which you don`t get to do in real life at all actually. I could live and take out all my anger of my past 29 years. Be it my Delhi-Mumbai issues, coming to Mumbai, surviving in the industry giving auditions, all kind of issues, parental issues so I thought it was very therapeutic."

When asked about choosing such a role so early in his career, the 29 year old actor said, "I think it was luck that it came up to me and I got this opportunity. When I heard the script there was so new for me to do. It was so alien of what I have done or what I am in real life. So there is so much scope for me to experimenting and trying new things and why not? Being bad is being good".

However lead actress, Shraddha Kapoor kept the suspense hidden and said, "Who is the real villain is the real question, is it me or is it Sid or is it Ritesh or a fourth person or the man behind the smiley. So who is Ek villain you have to watch the movie and see when it hits the theaters on 27th June."
