Director Jeethu Joseph took nearly seven to eight years to come up with the script of Drishyam. It is no different with Drishyam 2 as the filmmaker had to spend nearly five to six years to come up with a solid storyline for the sequel, Drishyam 2. The film stars Mohanlal, Meena, Esther Anil, and Ansiba Hassan in the lead roles. Drishyam 2 will skip theatrical release and will have a direct digital premiere on Amazon Prime Video on February 19.
Jeethu Joseph said, “Drishyam 2 is very close to my heart. Driven with this positive thought and buoyed with the overwhelming response, I have toyed with the idea of bringing the epic franchise back to the audience, but always changed my mind. Wherever I went I would be asked whether we would be coming back with a sequel. I am thankful to Lalettan for his faith in me and for his support to make my vision a reality. We have worked with immense passion and commitment to bring this film to our audiences and now we can’t wait to hear their reactions. I am delighted to have joined forces with Amazon Prime Video which has a resounding reach.”
