Navya Nair will step into the shoes of southern actress Meena in the Kannada remake
and Ravichandran will be essaying Mohanlal's role. Navya, who plays the young
mother in the movie says that it is a challenging role, which made
her to accept the offer.
Navya said, "I agreed to do the movie because the character was
very strong. It is also a challenging role for me in my career.
Being a mother for 17 year old daughter is not the question here,
but the role is very important for me." The remake movie, which has
started its shooting from the last week, at Coorg, is likely to hit
screen in May 2014.
Music maestro Ilayaraja is scoring the music for the movie,
which is being directed by P Vasu. Apart from Ravi and Navya, the Kannada
remake of Drishyam also features Prabhu, Asha Sarath and
others in the significant roles.
