Drishyam 2, starring Ajay Devgn, Akshaye Khanna, and Tabu will release in theatres on November 18, the makers announced earlier today.

Directed by Abhishek Pathak, the film is a sequel to the 2015 crime-thriller Drishyam, a Hindi remake of the Mohanlal-starrer Malayalam movie of the same name. The original Malayalam movie was released in 2013, while its sequel was released in February last year.

The story of the franchise centres on a family of four whose lives turn upside down following an unfortunate incident that happens to their older daughter.

Ajay will be seen reprising his role of Vijay Salgoankar in the sequel, which also features Shriya Saran, Rajat Kapoor, and Ishita Dutta. The team will wrap the shoot in Hyderabad on Tuesday.

"Indian cinema’s much-celebrated character Vijay Salgaonkar is all set to take us on yet another thrilling journey this year on 18th November. Promising to take it notches higher in thrill, drama and excitement, this sequel will take Vijay and his family’s story beyond imagination," a note from the makers read.

Drishyam 2 is produced by Bhushan Kumar, Kumar Mangat Pathak, Abhishek Pathak, Krishan Kumar and co-produced by Sanjeev Joshi, Aditya Chowksey and Shiv Chanana.

The film is presented by Viacom18 Studios, T-Series and Panorama Studios.

The first part of the Hindi Drishyam was directed by late filmmaker Nishikant Kamat.
