Taking up the responsibility of Drishyam 2, director Abhishek Pathak told PTI in an interview that the team spent months on the screenplay that would cater to a larger audience. He collaborated with Aamil Keeyan Khan for the screenplay. “We wanted someone who can understand what I want to achieve with this film. Writing is the most important thing and we need to spend the most amount of time on it. Once writing was done, we discussed with the team including DOP about the treatment, mood and energy of the shot,” he said.
It is a remake of 2021 Malayalam film of the same name, featuring Mohanlal in the lead role, and the sequel to 2015 film Drishyam. Abhishek said “people will find something new in the Hindi version”.
