Southern actors Meena and Nadia have been confirmed to play important roles in the Telugu remake of recent Malayalam blockbuster “Drishyam”. The yet-untitled remake will feature Daggubati Venkatesh in the lead. Actor-filmmaker Sripriya will helm the remake, which will be produced by D. Suresh Babu.
Apparently, Sripriya is currently scouting for locations in Kerala for the film, which will go on floors from March. Meena, who was part of the original, will reprise her own role in the remake, while Nadia will be seen in the role of a cop. Nadia was last seen in Pawan Kalyan’s “Attarintiki Daaredhi”, and she was lauded for her performance in the film.
“Drishyam”, which is about a father’s plight to cover up a murder committed by his family, is also being remade in Tamil and Kannada. While Kamal Haasan will feature in its Tamil remake, veteran actor Ravichandran will play the lead in the Kannada version.
