Ajay Devgn will return as the fierce Vijay Salgaonkar in Drishyam 2 along with Tabu, Shriya Saran, Rajat Kapoor, and Ishita Dutta. Directed by Abhishek Pathak, Akshaye Khanna will also feature in the sequel. He will be seen playing the role of a cop, who is close to Tabu. The remake of Mohanlal-Jeethu Joseph's Malayalam film will take the story of the family ahead.

The film has been scheduled for a release on November 18. Interestingly, Rajkummar Rao's film Bheed is also releasing the same day. Directed by Anubhav Sinha, Bheed also stars Bhumi Pednekar and Dia Mirza in pivotal roles. The two films, Drishyam 2 and Bheed will now clash at the box office. 

Ajay Devgn had earlier said in his statement that he is elated to present another story with Drishyam 2. Talking about the film, he said, "Drishyam was loved and it’s a legend. Vijay is a multidimensional character and he creates an engaging narrative onscreen. Abhishek Pathak (director) has a fresh vision for this film." He added that he is too keen on the sequel and to fill in the large shoes of the earlier film with people investing in the mystery and the characters.

The shoot of the film has been reportedly wrapped. The actor announced the release of the movie yesterday on social media. On the other hand, Bheed is touted to be a socio-political drama and the release date was announced earlier in May. It is produced by Anubhav Sinha and Bhushan Kumar under their banners T-Series and Benaras Media works, respectively. Director Sinha had earlier said, according to The Hans India, that he believes entertainment has the responsibility of making its audience think. He said, "I have attempted that with every film of mine and that's what we are doing with Bheed." He also sang praises of his cast and crew. "Bhumi, Raj, Dia are so good in the film. My crew was an important pillar of strength, pushing me to do better each day. I had the support of Bhushan Kumar, who is a dream collaborator. I can't wait for everyone to watch the film," he had said.
