“You’re not supposed to show your emotions on your face, it’s more of reacting. Acting is make-belief. So, you are hearing something, and you have to respond. So, if you respond in a proper way, then you be caught. You’re not supposed to do that. George Kutty cannot show any kind of real emotions on his face. So, he has to play the real emotion inside and he has to bring some other kind of emotions on his face. It is not that easy,” he said.

Talking about his character, he adds that George Kutty has become quite popular. “George Kutty is a cult figure now. You can only find one George Kutty in the entire world. He is such an intelligent guy, he’s a nice guy, he’s a common man, he’s brilliant, he’s shrewd and when you watch Drishyam 2, I think you will love George Kutty more and more,” he said during an episode of IMDb On The Scene.

On the film releasing directly on OTT, the actor told HT recently, “OTT platforms provide a global stage and a wider audience which helps an artiste’s hard work reach many people. There are multiple other perks, one of the biggest being, a regional cinema such as Drishyam 2 will now be accessible to people across the world at the click of a button.”

He added, “The movie premiered globally, making it available to avid cinephiles across countries, helping us reach a wider segment of audience across regions and languages.”

Talking about the announcement of Drishyam, Jeethu Joseph told Manorama online that he got mixed reactions from the people. “Frankly, I am surprised by some of the reactions to the news, though I must concede I expected such mixed reactions. Let me make it clear that I can’t write a sequel for such an overpowering lm like ‘Drishyam‘ in such a short span. It has been brewing in my mind for a long time, say four-ve years, and my initial decision was not to go ahead. I almost dropped the plan though the idea always lingered. But everywhere I went, people almost pestered me about the possibility of a sequel. One or two top production houses in Mumbai too asked me about it.” Also Read – Kamal Haasan reveals he envied Mohanlal for his quality of work

He added, “Soon after Drishyam, Mohanlal and Antony Perumbavoor too had expressed their wish to take the story and the project forward. During long journeys, my mind kept going back to the family of George Kutty. Slowly, I started writing down my thoughts, leading to a rough draft. Again, I discussed this with Mohanlal, who gave me an instant go-ahead. Even Antony was excited, but I was not yet confident about its feasibility or making the project public. We were busy shooting Ram. Answering the rest part of the question, I am already working on three projects, including Hindi and Tamil.”

Drishyam has been remade in several languages including Ajay Devgn and Shriya Saran‘s Drishyam (Hindi) and Kamal Haasan‘s Paapnasam (Tamil). Drishyam 2 will be produced by Antony Perumbavoor, who also bankrolled the first part. So, are you excited for the film? Tweet and let us know @bollywood_life.
