Drishyam 2, a sequel of Malayalam superstar Mohanlal’s hugely successful Drishyam is set to released exactly after seven years. The film, which will release on Amazon Prime on February 19 is currently the talk of the town as moviegoers can't wait to know what's in store for them. Recently during a press meet, director Jeethu Joseph revealed why it took him 7 years to come up with the sequel. To this, he had a very honest reply. Jeethu said that since it is sequel he didn't want to mess with a hit. He also sent scripts to a lot of people including his family who initially opposed the idea of him planning to make a sequel to the successful thriller-family drama. 

He said, "It took 7 years because I thought of making a sequel in 2015 onwards before that I thought there was no chance for the second part. So many people were asking if there is a possibility of a sequel but I always said the story is finished and is the end of it. After 2 3 years, people started making sequel stories on their own so automatically one day Anthony asked me to try and said if it doesn't work, leave it. It took almost 5 years to come to this frame and the moment I said that I'm going to write this thing, my family said 'don't do it and destroy the same" 

The first part of Drishyam was a huge success and not just in Malayalam but in other languages also. It is one of the films that showed how the world reflected towards Malayalam cinema. Explaining the real challenges in making the film, Mohanlal shared, "The main challenge for me is to portray the character but the main challenge for the Drishyam 2 makers is the story and we were focused in bringing this film because we have to bring the audience back to the theatres, entertainment industry. People should watch and say that this is the kind of film we were waiting for. I think we are doing it right now."
