Last evening, the team of Drishya 2, led by director P Vasu and the cast, including Ravichandran, Navya Nair and Aarohi Narayan, among others, launched the film’s trailer. Chief guest Kiccha Sudeep did the honours at the event, where he spoke about how he often does not watch Malayalam films along with his Malayali wife, Priya, because he hasn’t picked up the language in these many years, and misses out on the action onscreen while trying to read the subtitles. The fact that the Kannada remake of the Malayalam hit Drishyam 2 is now coming to screens, he added, makes it easier for him to watch the film. “I have not seen the Malayalam sequel, so, I am very happy that I will be seeing Ravi anna’s movie. In fact, the original Drishyam came out when we were shooting for Maanikya. I had heard about the film and the story seemed intriguing, so, I told Ravi anna about it. He was hesitant at first, but eventually I took him to a nearby multiplex and once he saw it, he loved it. At the time, I was ready to produce it with him in the lead, but by then he got the same offer from some others. They knew I was also in talks for the rights and spoke to me. My only condition in letting them proceed was that Ravi anna should be in the film,” reminisced Sudeep at the event, adding, “My hope is that Drishya 3 will be made in Kannada first.”
Drishya, meanwhile, is the story of Rajendra Ponnappa, as he goes all out to protect his family after an accidental and unintentional murder at their hands. While he managed to hoodwink the police once into believing that they were not even in town at the time, it appears the ghosts of pasts will haunt him in the sequel. Can Rajendra outsmart the police yet again and keep his family safe?
While the Malayalam Drishyam 2 was a direct-to-OTT release, the Kannada version is getting a theatrical release on December 10. The film also stars Navya Nair, Aarohi Narayan, Anant Nag, Pramod Shetty, Asha Sharath and Prabhu in pivotal roles.
