The film is a sequel to the 2013 hit crime drama 'Drishyam', directed by Jeethu Joseph. After its success in Malayalam, Drishyam was remade in a record number of languages, including Hindi.

Its 2015 Hindi adaptation, also backed by Pathak, was led by Ajay Devgn portraying Mohanlal's role and Tabu playing the Inspector General of Police. Directed by late Nishikant Kamat, the remake was a massive hit. "The story of 'Drishyam 2' resonated with people and I am so glad that Panorama Studios will make it reach a wider audience with the Hindi remake. I am looking forward to it," Jeethu Joseph said in a statement.
