The second season marks the digital debut of popular South Indian actor Samantha Akkineni. While her appearance in the trailer has caused some controversy, the creators stood by her, saying she was “taking an extreme risk playing this role.” Director Raj Nidmoru told indianexpress.com: “Samantha’s choice to do The Family Man 2 is an extremely risky one, especially considering how passionately her fans follow her work. There are already few reactions that say: ‘What have you done with our beautiful Samantha?’ I said, “She’s still beautiful, but in a different role.” Someone like her playing this role is very risky. It’s brave to say, ‘I’m going to let go of all the things that people see in me, in my character, and I’m going to embrace a very different, contrasting character and try to do my best with it.’”
After the controversy over the depiction of Tamil people and their culture erupted in Season 2 of The Family Man, Raj & DK issued a statement that read: “Some assumptions and impressions have been made based on just a few photos in the trailer Many of our protagonists as well as key members of the creative and writing team are Tamilians.We are very aware of the feelings of the Tamil people and the Tamil culture and have nothing but the utmost love and respect for our Tamil people .”
From the Season 2 trailer, it appears that Srikant Tiwari, played by Manoj Bajpayee, has taken a job that has nothing to do with the intelligence service, but is slowly finding his way back to his old roots. The Family Man always focused on Srikant’s private and work life, as the premise of the show is based on the fact that people with dangerous jobs can have equally demanding family lives. Also this season, Srikant’s marital life seems to be on the rocks as he tries to patch things up with his wife, played by Priyamani.
Manoj Bajpayee shared with indianexpress.com: “They did such a fantastic creative piece with season one, and the second season is unaffected and unaffected by the success of the first season, because we already shot the first schedule against time. that the first edition was out.”
He added: “The family has moved on, Srikant has moved on and he has new challenges at work and I am restlessly curious to know how people will receive Srikant in these new circumstances, how they can use this explosive character like that of Samantha will welcome. . This way I know for sure that we have a nice product in our hands.”
