Speaking about the character of Akshaye Khanna, the director of the film Abhishek Pathak expressed, 

β€œIn Drishyam 2, we have Tabu and Ajay Devgn confronting each other and I wanted someone of that level or even beyond that. The entire character was designed keeping this in mind, we never thought that we would write it and then think of casting. From the 1st day itself, when we started writing the Cop character – we had Akshaye in mind, his image, and his personality. That made it very easy for us, as we knew what we would bring to the table. He was always the first option and my first thought for this character and we are very happy with it.”
