After being a massive hit among the Indian audience, the Drishyam series, consisting of Drishyam 1 and Drishyam 2, is set to go international. The Malayalam film, starring Mohanlal in the lead role, will see several non-Indian remakes in the future.
This comes as Panorama Studios International has acquired the remake rights of the Malayalam language Drishyam 1 and Drishyam 2 in all non-Indian languages.
"Panorama Studios International Limited acquires remake rights of Malayalam language Drishyam 1 and Drishyam 2 in all non-Indian languages, including English, but excluding Filipino, Sinhala and Indonesian," trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted.
The company has also acquired the rights to the Chinese Language remake of Drishyam 2. It is also negotiating to produce the film in Korea, Japan and Hollywood.
