Suresh Balaji , Mohanlal’s brother-in-law who has brought the Tamil and Telugu remake rights of Drishyam is starting the film in Telugu. Top Telugu hero ‘Victory’ Venkatesh will do the role made popular by Mohanlal.
Drishyam in Telugu will be directed by actress Sripriya (debuting in Tamil with Malini 22 Palyamkottai, the remake of 22 Female Kottayam) who is producing the film in Telugu with her husband Rajkumar Sethupathy (hero of yesteryear Malayalam film Hariharan’s Poocha Sanyasi) under the banner of Rajkumar Theatres in association with Venkatesh’s Suresh Productions.
The Telugu Drishyam production work will be outsourced to Suresh Balaji and George Pious’s Wide Angle Creations. Remember Wide Angel specialises in outsourcing for major production houses and has done Ajith’s Billa 2 and has completed Malini 22 Palayamkottai.
The rest of the cast and other details of the Telugu production are being worked out. Venkatesh has given bulk dates and the film will be a quickie and completed in one schedule.
