Which is why many of Mohanlal's fans started teasing him with memes and jokes on social media. Here are some of the best memes poking fun at Ajay Devgn's 'Bollywood Drishyam 2'.
The original 2013 Drishyam starred Mohanlal and Meena in the lead roles. The film follows the story of Georgekutty (Mohanlal) and his family. The entire family is trying to hide the fact that they killed the Inspector-general of police's son after he physically assaulted Georgekutty's daughter.
The original film was a massive success and was popular not only in Kerela but also in all other states of the country. The drama thriller was directed by Jeethu Joseph and earned around ₹750 million for a budget of ₹50 million, making it one of the most successful Indian films of that year. Just two years later, in 2015, the film was remade by Bollywood and starred Ajay Devgn and Shriya Saran in the lead roles.
The Hindi version was a complete shot for shot remake of the original. Just like the original, the Hindi version of Drishyam received massive praise from critics and audiences alike. The film also did well at the box office, earning around ₹111.05 crores for a budget of only ₹48 crores.
