Drishyam 2 has commenced its shoot in Mumbai with Ajay Devgan. It is expected that the film will be extensively shot in Goa in the following months. Ajay Devgan has shared a picture from the set asking fans ‘Can Vijay protect his family again?’ Drishyam 2 will also feature the star cast of the first film including Tabu, Shriya Saran, Ishita Dutta amongst others. The crime thriller genre is expected to see a revival this year and Drishyam 2 is expected to be one of the best movies in this league in 2022.
Drishyam 2 begins 7 years after the events in the first film and tests Vijay’s resolve to protect his family for whom he would cross any limits. Ajay’s character of Vijay in the hit film ‘Drishyam’ made everyone believe that their family went on a holiday which in turn was a perfect plan to save his family from a murder conviction.
Talking about coming back with Drishyam 2, Ajay Devgn said, “Drishyam was loved and it’s a legend. I am now elated to present yet another interesting story with Drishyam 2. Vijay is a multidimensional character and he creates an engaging narrative onscreen. Abhishek Pathak (director) has a fresh vision for this film. I’m keenly looking forward to part 2, filling in the large shoes of the earlier film with people investing in the mystery and the characters.”
Drishyam 2 is produced by Bhushan Kumar, Kumar Mangat Pathak, Abhishek Pathak, Krishan Kumar and co-produced by Sanjeev Joshi, Aditya Chowksey and Shiv Chanana.
Abhishek Pathak, who will be directing Drishyam 2 expressed excitement for the movie and said, “Making an official remake of a successful franchise film is an honour and a challenge. An opportunity to work along with Mr. Ajay Devgn, who is such a powerhouse of talent is a morale-booster for any creative person; his unique influence is undoubtedly the most enriching experience for me personally. It’s exciting to retell a story from your own perspective and vision by divergent visuals in the most justified yet extraordinary way. The setting and the mood of the film uplifts the very essence of the crux making it gripping from the very beginning.”
