Ajay Devgn is all set to hit the screens with his much-awaited "Drishyam", which is set for release on 31 July. While, Ajay Devgn's previous film "Action Jackson" failed to make an impact at the box office, the actor does not have very high expectations from "Drishyam" as well, as far as box office earning is concerned.

After "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" and "Baahubali" rocked the box office and are still continuing to do so, the next release that everyone is eyeing on is Ajay Devgn's "Drishyam". However, the versatile actor asserted that he does not expect the film to make huge Box Office earnings and it will rely on the word of mouth.

"I am sure 'Drishyam' will do well. With today's market changing box office fate of such films depend on word of mouth. We are not expecting this film to do Rs 150 crore business at Box Office. This film is made with a limited budget and if it does decently and covers the cost, its good. If the budget is big then it's a problem," The Times Of India quoted Ajay Devgn as saying.

"They are not pot boilers that open on big scale. When you are sure that the film is so nice that word of mouth is going to be strong then you decide to do the film and so there is no insecurity," he added.

Although, "Action Jackson" had an average run at the box office, Ajay Devgn's last year release "Singham Returns" was a hit with a lifetime collection of around Rs 140 crore.

Directed by Nishikant Kamat, "Drishyam" also features Shriya Saran, Tabu and Rajat Kapoor in lead roles. The film's plot is based on a family man, who gets involved in a crime and how Ajay Devgn fights all odds to save his family.

"Drishyam" happens to be a Hindi remake of a superhit Malayalam film by the same name and it also has Tamil, Kannada and Telugu versions.
