Director Abhishek Pathak and the producers of Drishyam 2 have decided that they’ll kick start the promotional campaign of the film from October 2. The date held a special significance in the first part due to which they felt that starting their campaign on this date is apt. Moreover, things fell into place for them as Drishyam 2 is scheduled to be released on November 18, that is, 45 days after October 2. Hence, everyone in the team unanimously agreed to begin the film’s promotional journey on the national holiday.”
Ajay Devgn and Shriya Saran have started shooting for the second installment of Drishyam, almost seven years after the release of the critically acclaimed 2015 movie. The Hindi version, headlined by Ajay, was a remake of 2013’s Malayalam movie of the same name, starring Mohanlal as the lead.
The Abhishek Pathak-directorial has commenced filming in Mumbai. However, it was majorly shot in Goa in the following months. While Drishyam saw Ajay’s character VIJAY protecting his family after they accidentally murder the son of a high-ranking police officer, its sequel would test his resolve to keep his family out of danger once again.
Shriya Saran, who plays Vijay’s wife Nandini in the movie, and Ajay, took to their social media accounts to announce the beginning of the shooting schedule. They shared a photo from sets that showed the duo looking on as Abhishek Pathak gave them directions.
Ajay captioned the post: “Can Vijay protect his family again? #Drishyam2 shoot begins.”
Talking about directing Drishyam 2, Abhishek Pathak said: “Making an official remake of a successful franchise film is an honor 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. The setting and the mood of the film uplifts the very essence of the crux making it gripping from the very beginning.’’
