Malayalam Cinema superstar Mohanlal, fondly called as Lalettan, shared the teaser of his upcoming flick Drishyam 2 online.

I'm not surprised!
I knew it would happen!
As long as Marakkar and Aarattu are theatrical releases, I have no issue with Drishyam 2 releasing on OTT.
But it would have been great to watch it on big screen#Drishyam2onprime
