Ever since the film hit OTT and became a massive hit, the Tollywood audience is waiting eagerly to watch the remake in Telugu. Years ago, Venkatesh had reprised the role Mohanlal played in the original for Drishyam (Drushyam in Telugu) and he has now come on-board for the sequel. The thriller will go on sets soon and shooting will resume once Venkatesh wraps up shooting for his other films. While an official announcement is yet to come, Poorna will be playing a key role in the film, state sources. It’s yet to be known what role she plays in the film though.
Directed by Jeethu Joseph, the same director of the Malayalam version, the Telugu remake has high expectations pinned on it. Meena had played the female lead in the first part and Malayalam sequel, so it remains to be seen if she reprises her role for this one. Venkatesh also has Anil Ravipudi’s F3 with Tamannaah Bhatia, Varun Tej and Mehreen Pirzada to shoot for. Poorna has also been picking up some critically acclaimed roles in Tollywood. She was recently seen as the antagonist in Raj Tarun starrer Power Play which hit screens recently. She plays a ruthless politician and received accolades for her role.
