Producer Antony Perumbavur, who is elated looking at the success of Drishyam 2 even on OTT has revealed that the threequel is already in writer-director Jeethu Joseph’s mind. Talking to a source, he said, “I can say that Drishyam 3 is in Jeethu’s mind. I understood from his conversations that he is contemplating it. I really hope that it happens. In fact, Lal sir and Jeethu have been speaking about it. All of us wish for Drishyam 3. Drishyam 2 will be remade in many other languages too. I am disappointed that the movie didn’t have a theatre release. I am someone who wishes for the theatre experience. But, these are unprecedented times. So, I have gone for an OTT release for my survival.”
He further added, “The release of Drishyam had been quite path-breaking in Malayalam cinema. After that, many movies have had incredibly successful outings. So, you need to be cautious and attentive while making the sequel of such a major movie. It is quite rare that a sequel of a movie repeats the same success.”
