The family man 2 is one of the most popular shows right now in India. The show got all the love and praises from the audience and critics. Actress Samantha Akkineni who made her digital debut with the show is also getting praised by the audience. But did you know the Family Man 2 originally saw Samantha Akkineni falling in love with the character of Sajid. The actor Shahab Ali has confirmed it. Apparently, the show had some intimate and ‘suggestive’ scenes between Samantha Akkineni’s character of Rajji and Sajid. However, in the final edit, the scenes were chopped off.
Talking about the scenes, Shahab told Bollywood Hungama in an interview, “It is not just the intimate scenes. It was the usual process – you have a lengthy show and there is the process of editing which comes later. It was not like a particular scene was edited out.”
Samantha and Shahab were seen playing the role of extremists. Their characters were seen planning a suicide attack in India. Samantha is playing a Sri Lankan Tamilian, Rajji, Shahab eased the role of a man from Kashmir, Sajid.
Shahab added, “I think only those scenes were retained that were required and logical. The parts that were not logical, were not kept (in the final version).” Asked if they shot any scenes that had physical intimacy, the actor further said, “We did some suggestive scenes that suggested that they fall in love towards the end. But those scenes were not making sense for the creators, or maybe the platform. So, those scenes were edited out. There are so many scenes edited out, so it is not a big deal. That is the process (of content creation).”
The Family Man 2 is created by Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK it also stars Manoj Bajpayee in the lead.
