MUMBAI: Viacom18 Motion Pictures is all
set to remake the popular Southern film
‘Drishyam’ in Hindi starring Ajay Devgn in
the lead role.

The movie studio claims ‘Drishyam’ was the
highest grosser in Malayalam featuring actor
Mohanlal and opened to packed houses in
its Telugu version starring Venkatesh. The
film will soon release in Tamil as well, with
actor Kamal Hassan essaying the lead role.

With director Nishikant Kamat at the helm,
the drama-thriller will go on floors by
February end and is slated for release in
2015 by the movie studio.

Viacom18 Motion Pictures COO Ajit Andhare
said, “’Drishyam’ is an iconic film that
leaves you spellbound and intrigued long
after you have watched it. Its box-office
record in Malayalam and Telugu speaks for
itself. The lead role that Ajay will play has
been essayed by legends like Mohanlal,
Venkatesh and Kamal Hassan. With such
pedigree and a rare combination of strong
content and top acting prowess, we are
looking to create something special here.
Nishi is raring to go, we will be on the floor
in February and look to release in the film in

The film will be co-produced by Viacom18
Motion Pictures and Panaroma Studios.
Panaroma Studios MD Abhishek Pathak said,
“We always believe in high-quality cinema
and entertainment around the globe. Our
past ventures like ‘Omkara’, ‘Special 26′,
‘Pyaaar Ka Punchnama’ and ‘Atithi Tum
Kaab Jaoge’ were high on content and so
will be ‘Drishyam’.”

After the success of ‘Kahaani’, ‘Queen’,
‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’ and ‘Mary Kom’,
‘Drishyam’ is the next big-ticket adventure
movie from the stable of Viacom18 Motion
