Talking about Drishyam 2, Ajay Devgn had previously shared in a statement saying, "Drishyam was loved and it’s a legend. I am now elated to present yet another interesting story with Drishyam 2. Vijay is a multidimensional character and he creates an engaging narrative onscreen. Abhishek Pathak has a fresh vision for this film. I’m keenly looking forward to part 2, filling in the large shoes of the earlier film with people investing in the mystery and the characters."

While most of the original cast are reprising their roles, the new addition will be Akshaye Khanna and it will be interesting to see how the actor's pivotal character adds to the already strong cast. Drishyam 2 is backed by Viacom18 Studios, Gulshan Kumar, T-Series, and Panorama Studios. The film is to release on the same day as Anubhav Sinha's Bheed starring Rajkummar Rao, Bhumi Pednekar, and Dia Mirza in pivotal roles. So it will be interesting to see the two films duke it out at the box office.
