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.” Taking over the director’s seat for ‘Drishyam 2’, Abhishek Pathak also expressed his excitement.
He 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.”
‘Drishyam 2’ will also feature the star cast of the first film including Tabu, Shriya Saran, and Ishita Dutta among others.
