Ajay Devgn's character in the supernova Drishyam convinced everyone that their family had gone on vacation, which turned out to be a perfect plan to save his family from a murder conviction. In fact, the film made certain that the audience remembered what the Salgoankars did on October 2 and 3. In the sequel, the actor will reprise one of his most intriguing characters and continue in Vijay's shoes.

The story unfolds a journey that leaves the audience wondering what their way out might be this time. The sequel outperforms the original in terms of scope and ambition, aiming for a global audience beyond regional audiences. It reveals a specific mood and theme, making the visual appealing to a global audience.

Drishyam 2 has begun filming in Mumbai with Ajay Devgn and will be shot extensively in Goa in the coming months. The film will also feature the original film's star cast, which includes Tabu, Shriya Saran, and Ishita Dutta, among others. Drishyam 2 picks up seven years after the events of the first film and puts Vijay's determination to protect his family, for whom he would go to any length, on display. This film strives to do justice to the "crime-thriller" genre in every way.

In a statement, Ajay said that Drishyam was well-liked and became a legend. The actor is now delighted to present Drishyam 2 with yet another intriguing story. Vijay is a multidimensional character who creates an engrossing story onscreen. The director, Abhishek Pathak, has a fresh vision for this film, and Ajay is looking forward to Part Two because it will fill in the large shoes left by the first film, with people invested in the mystery and the characters.

While director Abhishek Pathak shared that it's both an honour and a challenge to make an official remake of a successful franchise film, working with Mr. Ajay Devgn, who is such a powerhouse of talent, is a morale booster for any creative person; his unique influence is without a doubt the most enriching experience for him personally. It's thrilling to retell a story from one's own point of view and vision through divergent visuals in the most justified yet extraordinary way. Pathak concluded by saying that the film's setting and mood enhance the very essence of the crux, making it gripping from the start.

Drishyam 2 is the Hindi remake of the Malayalam film of the same name, directed by Jeethu Joseph and starring Mohanlal in the lead role. The film was released on Amazon Prime Video in 2021.
