Following the blockbuster success of Mohanlal’s Malayalam film Drishyam 2, the director also announced the sequel in Telugu. Drushyam is the Telugu remake of the Malayalam Drishyam, which was made in 2013. Drushyam (2014 ) starred Daggubati Venkatesh, Meena and Nadhiya in the lead roles. Drishyam 2 earned rave reviews from critics who were skeptical about how Jeethu Joseph would handle a sequel of such highly rated prequel. However, Drishyam 2 proved everyone wrong with its nail biting script and proved itself as a worthy sequel.
A sequel for Drushyam was announced immediately following the successful release of Drishyam 2, which has Venkatesh Daggubati reprising his role as Rambabu. Reportedly, the Telugu sequel remake would commence shooting from March 8th, 2021. Jeethu Joseph, who directed the Malayalam versions, would be helming the Telugu remake of the sequel.
Suresh Babu, who produced Drushyam, is also the producer for the remake of the sequel. The rest of the supporting actors, including Meena, Naresh, Nadiya, Krithika, Esther Anil and others, are expected to reprise their roles from the 2014 Telugu remake for the sequel.
Drushyam was considered one of the best thrillers of Indian cinema. The Telugu remake did extremely well at the box office and was lauded by critics and audience alike. The story of the film was based on a man who goes to great lengths to cover up the manslaughter committed by his wife and elder daughter. Eight years later, Drushyam 2 is coming back and fans are excited to see Rambabu on the silver screen once again.
