Drishyam 3: Mohanlal and Ajay Devgn’s versions to get released on the same day; Say REPORTS
After the success of Drishyam 2, a 3rd part is being planned for both the Malayalam and Hindi versions, which are headlined by Mohanlal and Ajay Devgn respectively.
Drishyam 2, the highly anticipated sequel of Ajay Devgn-starring 2015-released film, has now emerged as a massive box office success. The movie, which is a remake of Mohanlal and director Jeethu Joseph's much-celebrated 2021-released Malayalam film, is getting rave reviews for emerging as a faithful remake. The highly celebrated franchise revolves around a middle-class man who is on a mission to conceal a crime committed by his daughter for self-defense. Both the Malayalam and Hindi versions of Drishyam are now set to get a third installment soon.
Mohanlal and Ajay Devgn's Drishyam 3 versions to release on the same day?
According to the latest reports published by Times Of India, the makers of Drishyam's Malayalam and Hindi versions are now planning to release the third installment of the franchise in both languages, on the same day. Yes, you read it right. For the uninitiated, the Hindi versions of both Drishyam and Drishyam 2 hit the theatres a long time after the release of the original Malayalam versions.
This has resulted in even the Hindi audiences getting familiar with the subject and its suspense factor, much before Ajay Devgn's film hit the theatres. But for the third installment, which is said to be the final part of the franchise, the makers are reportedly planning to prevent this by releasing both versions on the same day. If things go as planned, the Drishyam 3 release will be a historical moment in Indian cinema.
