‘Drishyam 2’ director Abhishek Pathak has talked about how Akshaye Khanna was the perfect fit for the film.
Speaking about the character of Akshaye Khanna, the director of the film Abhishek Pathak expressed, “In Drishyam 2, we have Tabu and Ajay Devgn confronting each other and I wanted someone of that level or even beyond that. The entire character was designed keeping this in mind, we never thought that we would write it and then think of casting.”
“From the 1st day itself, when we started writing the Cop character – we had Akshaye in mind, his image and his personality. That made it very easy for us, as we knew what we would bring to the table. He was always the first option and my first thought for this character and we are very happy with it.”
Other than Akshaye Khanna, Ajay Devgn and Tabu, the film also stars Shriya Saran and Ishita Dutta in pivotal roles.
