Tabu signs Ajay Devgn’s ‘Drishyam’ remake

The terrific Tabu, who delivered an award-winning performance in Haider last year, has been cast to play a police officer in Ajay Devgn’s ‘Drishyam’ remake.

Tabu is likely to portray the character played by Asha Sarath in the original, a role that won her the Filmfare Award for Best Supporting Actress.

The casting for other important characters in the film are currently in progress. Sources say, director Nishikant Kamat has finalised most of his actors. The announcement is expected to be made soon.

Mohanlal’s critically acclaimed Malayalam film ‘Drishiyam’ was the first to collect Rs 50 crore from its theatrical, satellite and remake rights. Ajay signed the remake of the 2013 classic after his directorial venture ‘Shivaay’ was postponed due to shooting difficulties.

The untitled remake will release later this year.





  • Good casting, sorry excellent casting! Tabu is the best for that role. She will play a IPS officer. But didn’t like Drishyam.

  • Excellent choice by director n producer…
    how will be the heroine?
    well Malayalam drishyam budget was 10 cr
    Telugu drishyam budget was 15 cr
    Hindi drishyam budget will not more than 25 cr…now definitely movie will not lose money…
    Waiting for movie

  • Tabu is a phenomenal actress . She was absolutely brilliant in Haider . I have heard from many people that Drishyam is a Cult movie so i think now Ajay has made a good decision by signing this movie . I just hope Nishikant can give a movie like Force or Mumbai Meri Jaan which was also appreciated by the critics .

  • It is an excellent movie ajay is right choice for father character as there will be more scope of acting in dat role.and it vl be a critical success

  • @thullu carrier

    There wont be a pair in the same sense you and nipun are a pair of chameleons or you n megha aunty ji are a couple… There will be working alongside one another- different thing altogether you sleazy sick minded shaukeen reject…!

  • Great news.
    Hope Nishikant signs Rani as Ajay’s wife while Alia plays the daughter role. that would be like my dream come true.

  • Great.Good to see highly talented actress Tabu back to back in films, first Jai ho-She was good, Haider-Best performance in the film.
    Hope Dhshyam give justice to her talent,but Ajay gonna roar.

  • @Ajay rocks…don’t u think they wouldv paired another old nostalgic hit combo pairing actress like Karishma Kapoor since an old pair in d name of tabu(one of d most underated actress) is also starring?? Ideally would’ve taken another hit pair combo…Ashwirya rai! My wish

  • @sheheer n @navina
    When did i said they will be a pair??
    Read my comment again..
    I said the vijaypath pair..that did’nt meant they will be paired here too.

  • @Shaggy,

    The budget for Malayalam Drishyam was not 10 crore…It was just 3.5 cr as the producer was Mohanlal himself…That movie released without any Buzz and with 2 other big movies on Dec 19 2013, Well rest was history….It smashed all records in Malayalam movie industry and went on to collect around 67 crores from theaters itself…The satellite rights and overseas rights were also records…So a movie which made of a budget of 3.5 cr has collected around 75 cr including all revenues…Not to forget that the highest grosser before Drishyam in Malayalam was Twenty-20 whcih had a collection of 31.4 cr….So if the hindi makers can do justice to the Original movie…Then Ajay Devgun will have an all time blockbuster in his career…even though Ajay cant even reach close to Mohanlal in terms of Performance in the movie..Lets see
