The sequel to the Malayalam hit film Drishyam was released earlier this year. Owing to the pandemic, the film was released on an OTT platform and opened to wonderful reviews from the audiences and the critics. Drishyam which was released in the Malayalam language in 2013 was remade in multiple languages including Hindi, Tamil, and Telugu. The sequel of the movie will also be remade in multiple languages. Talks about the remake of the film in Hindi are also underway.

The remake of the prequel starring Ajay Devgn was helmed by Nishikant Kamat. With the filmmaker passing away a few months back, fans are left wondering as to who will direct the Hindi remake. Filmmaker Jeethu Jospeph who helmed the original is also remaking it in Telugu. Jeethu has also helmed a Hindi movie titled The Body and therefore giving rise to speculations of him coming on board to direct the Hindi remake of his film.

However, when Jeethu was contacted by a leading daily regarding the Hindi remake he dismissed the speculative reports and said that he would not be directing the film. He also said that it will be up to the makers to decide on whom they want the film to be directed.
