After a massive success of Bahubali, the line of difference between South movies and Hindi movies has vanished. The pan India projects keep surprising viewers. They revolved around Prabhas, Vijay Deverakonda, Dulquer Salmaan and others. Therefore, it was pretty expected and reasonable for a fan to ask South superstar Mohanlal to work with Akshay Kumar which will be directed by Priyadarshan. Now, the surprise and excitement lie in Mohanlal’s reply as the actor readily agreed for the same. This has made fans curious.
South Actor Mohanlal to Plan a Film with Akshay Kumar directed by Priyadarshan?
Replying to the fan’s question, Mohanlal replied, “Let it happen.”

The Malayalam thriller Drishyam was hit which came in 2013. Therefore, there are high expectations with Drishyam 2.
Mohanlal said, “The pressure to present the story and live up to audience expectations was definitely there which is why there was a delay to release the sequel. To bring out a movie with this kind of characters, emotions and intelligence, you need a minimum of seven to eight years. Great things always take time. If you observe carefully, Drishyam 1 was a family drama right till the first half of the movie since one is completely unaware of what is coming their way,” he said.
The actor added, “The film picks up the pace with the excitement and suspense going several notches higher in the second half going on to become a nail-biting thriller. Since one already knows the back story in Drishyam 2, the pressure comes in naturally as our story is in competition with itself. Having said that, I am confident that the audience will love the story and the movie.”
