The makers of Drushyam 2, the Telugu remake of the Mohanlal-led Malayalam thriller, have delayed the unveiling of the movie’s first look.
The first look of the movie led by Venkatesh Daggubati, was scheduled to be out today at 10 am. Suresh Productions cited “unforeseen circumstances” behind the first look’s delay and apologised to fans who had been waiting with bated breath.

Drushyam 2 is directed by Jeethu Joseph, who helmed the original Malayalam and its sequel. The Telugu remake is bankrolled by D Suresh Babu, Antony Perumbavoor, and Rajkumar Sethupathi. Satheesh Kurup is the cinematographer, while Anup Rubens is the music composer.
Joining Venkatesh in the cast are Meena, Kruthika, Esther Anil, Sampath Raj, Nadhiya, Naresh and Poorna.
Venkatesh had wrapped the shoot of the movie in April. Suresh Productions had shared the update with a picture of the actor and supporting cast on Twitter.
Mohanlal’s Drishyam 2, a sequel to the 2013 thriller, had a direct-to-digital release on Amazon Prime Video on February 19. Siddique, Murali Gopy, Meena, Saikumar, Asha Sharath, Esther and Ansiba were seen in supporting roles.
Drishyam 2 was well-received by critics and audience alike, and declared a massive hit. In February, Jeethu had confirmed that a third instalment, the last part of the franchise, is on the cards.
Drushyam 2 will expand on Rambabu and his family’s story, six years after the events of the movie.
