Where to stream Drushyam 2 online
Drushyam 2 will be exclusively streaming through the Amazon Prime Video streaming platform.
The film was originally meant to premiere in theatres across the country but because of the reduction in cinema capacity due to the coronavirus pandemic, the makers began negotiating streaming rights in May 2021.
“Since the second wave of Covid-19 is seeing a hike in cases every day, the makers have decided to stop planning for theatrical release. So, the makers of ‘Drushyam 2’ are in talks with several OTT platforms.” – The Times of India.
On November 12th, the production team confirmed that a deal had been reached with the Amazon Prime Video streaming service.
