Jeethu Joeseph, who has directed the original said, “The story of Drishyam 2, resonated with people and I am so glad that Panorama Studios International will make it reach to a wider audience with the Hindi remake. I am looking forward to it.”
Drishyam 2 starred Malayalam superstar Mohanlal and earlier reports stated that Ajay Devgn and Tabu will reprise their roles in the Hindi sequel of Drishyam. The Hindi remake Drishyam was released in 2015 and was helmed by late filmmaker Nishikant Kamat.
Earlier, indianexpress.com quoted a source saying, “Since Ajay Devgn and Tabu had done Hindi Drishyam, and Mangat had produced it too, they will star in Hindi Drishyam 2 also. However, talks are on and none of the actors have signed the dotted line. They will soon be in the position to make an official announcement. There is also no clarity on who will be directing the film after the death of Nishikant Kamat.”
