'Drishyam 2' set for Hindi remake

Producers Kumar Mangat Pathak and Abhishek Pathak's Panorama Studios International announced it has acquired the Hindi remake rights of the Malayalam hit 'Drishyam 2 - The Resumption'.

Headlined by superstar Mohanlal, 'Drishyam 2' earned acclaim upon its release on Amazon Prime Video in February. The film is a sequel to the 2013 hit crime drama 'Drishyam', directed by Jeethu Joseph.

The first installment traced the struggle of Georgekutty (Mohanlal) and his family, who come under suspicion when the son of Inspector General of Police Geetha Prabhakar (Asha Sarath) gets killed.

Its 2015 Hindi adaptation, also backed by Pathak, was led by Ajay Devgn portraying Mohanlal's role and Tabu playing the Inspector General of Police.

Directed by late Nishikant Kamat, the remake was a massive hit.

Pathak said the team is now driven to do justice to the second part.

"With the huge success of 'Drishyam 2', the story needs to be told with passion and commitment and we as producers are committed to that," the filmmaker said in a statement.
