National award winner Tabu is choosy about her roles, and her performance is always remembered by audiences, for years to come.

And her forthcoming film Drishyam is no different. She plays the role of a tough inspector general officer and Tabu is quite excited about this role.  She quips, “Now that I am playing an IG, the command over the force is much greater. When you see it in the context of the film, it’s great that such a role was written for a woman. It could have easily been done by a man but a woman is doing it.”

Drishyam will see Ajay Devgn play the role of a cable operator Vijay Salgaonkar, who is a class four fail. His family is very dear to him and his life revolves around them.

Tabu plays the role of a tough IG Meera Deshmukh, whose son goes missing under mysterious circumstances and the prime suspect in this is Vijay Salgaonkar (Ajay Devgn) and his family.

Devgn and Tabu will be pitted against each other and both have powerful roles in their domain. While one will see Tabu go to many lengths to find where her missing son is, will Devgn be framed or would he be guilty, is another mystery to be solved.

A Panorama Studios and Viacom 18 Motion Pictures Production,  presented by Viacom 18 Motion Pictures, Drishyam is directed by Nishikant Kamat, and produced by Kumar Mangat Pathak, Ajit Andhare and Abhishek Pathak. The film is all set to hit the screens on July 31.
