The official synopsis of Drishyam 2 reads, "7 years after the case related to Vijay Salgaonkar and his family was closed, a series of unexpected events bring a truth to light that threatens to change everything for the Salgaonkars. Can Vijay save his family this time?"
Ajay was last seen in Runway 34 and Thank God and both films did not perform well at the box office.
Talking about Drishyam 2, Ajay said, "Drishyam was loved and it's a legend. I am now elated to present yet another interesting story with Drishyam 2. Vijay is a multidimensional character and he creates an engaging narrative onscreen. Abhishek Pathak (director) has a fresh vision for this film. I'm keenly looking forward to part 2, filling in the large shoes of the earlier film with people investing in the mystery and the characters."
Directed by Abhishek Pathak, Drishyam 2 is a remake of the 2021 Malayalam film of the same name. Apart from Ajay Devgn, the movie also stars Tabu, Shriya Saran and Akshaye Khanna.
