Drishyam 2, the Mohanlal starrer directed by Jeethu Joseph, is one of the most awaited upcoming projects of the Malayalam cinema. The highly anticipated movie, which was originally supposed to start rolling on August 17, 2020, was later postponed due to the increasing coronavirus threat and heavy rainfall in Kerala.
As per the latest reports, Drishyam 2 will start rolling on September 7, 2020. The sources close to the project suggest that the Mohanlal starrer will go on floors in the same location in Thodupuzha, where the first installment Drishyam was shot. An official announcement on the same is expected to be made in a couple of days.
As per the latest reports, Mohanlal has successfully finished the quarantine and tested negative for COVID-19. Thus, the makers are planning to kickstart the shooting of Drishyam 2 as earlier as possible. According to director Jeethu Joseph, the movie will be majorly shot indoors, which makes it easier for the team to shoot.
As reported earlier, Drishyam 2 will be a continuation of its prequel Drishyam and revolves around the lives of the central character George Kutty and his family members. But this time, there are no more killings involved, like the first installment. Expectations are riding high on the project, as the first part has emerged as one of the biggest blockbusters of the Malayalam cinema.
Mohanlal will reprise the much-celebrated character George Kutty in Drishyam 2. Meena, the popular actress will once again appear George Kutty's wife Rani. Ansiba Hassan and Esther Anil will return as the couple's daughters. The other prominent faces of Drishyam, including Kalabhavan Shahjohn, Siddique, Asha Sharath, Neeraj Madhav, Kozhikode Narayanan Nair, Sreekumar, Aneesh G Menon, and so will reprise their characters in the sequel. The project is bankrolled by Aashirvad Cinemas.
