Director Nishikant Kamat is doing a hindi remake of Drishyam. Ajay Devgn was roped in to do the male lead and the film will go on floors in March in Goa.
Here's another interesting piece of information. Actress Shriya Saran has been roped in to play the role of Ajay Devgn's wife in Drishyam. The actress who balances her career between Bollywood and South Indian films has been signed for the remake.
Producer Kumar Mangat said, "Yes, we are happy to have Shriya on board. She fits the role perfectly.''
Earlier, rumours about Tabu being roped in to play the role of the tough cop emerged. However, it is not confirmed. Ajay Devgn dropped his ambitious directorial project Shivaay and started doing Nishikant Kamat's Drishyam remake.
Drishyam is a super hit critically acclaimed movie in Malayalam played by Mohanlal which won many awards. First half of the film is deliberately slow-paced and the second half makes the audience sit at the edge of their seats.
Ajay Devgn has worked with South actresses like Tamannaah Bhatia, Kajal Aggarwal and Asin Thottumkal. Shriya Saran will join that list and Ajay Devgn's fans are waiting for this remake to be out!
