Drishyam 2: Drishyam 2, a thriller starring actor Ajay Devgn and Tabu, has earned more than Rs 200 cr at the domestic box office, becoming only the third Hindi movie this year to do so after Brahmastra and The Kashmir Files.
Despite two other Bollywood releases, the Ayushmann Khurrana–led action film ‘An Action Hero’ and the Varun Dhawan–led monster comedy ‘Bhediya,’ the thriller, which debuted on November 18, had a strong, comfortable run at the box office.

He said, “If you want to make that (same) film, just take the rights, dub it and release it. Don’t do frame to frame, because then what are you adding to it as a director? Don’t think like a remake, just take it as a screenplay, forget a film and just make yours. I have seen a lot of times people end up making frame to frame remakes.”
