The Family Man 2: Raj Nidimoru opens on the controversy around Manoj Bajpayee’s show, says “in this season, we are as close to Tamil as possible”

Makers of The Family Man 2 dropped the much-awaited trailer of the popular show on May 19. The first season of the show gathered a huge success amongst the audience and people were eagerly waiting for the second season.

Created by Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK, popularly known as Raj and DK, the second season of the show will see the entry of Samantha Akkineni as the antagonist.

Talking about the show Raj told Bollywood Hungama, “We don’t tend to take a stance at all because I don’t think we are the kind of people we made movies about zombies also. It is the fact that we have a story to tell but I dint want to take a stance. It is about being observers and not comment on it. That’s our thing in whatever we have done. We rather be the observers.”

As soon as the trailer dropped a section of the community got disturbed and started trolling the show.

“This whole show is inspired by newspaper articles. Stories that you see in newspaper articles, we are kind of making a fictional worked around it, showing it the way it is It was really more about that. Especially in this season, we are as close to Tamil as possible. DK can be closer to Tamil Nadu than anybody else here, so as Samantha, so as I, so as our co-writers. So everybody is pretty cognizant of the sentiments of the Tamil people and Tamil culture; Priya is also Tamil. So we know the world. We are just showing what we have seen and read in an objective manner. The key is objective,” he added.

The Family Man 2 stars Manoj Bajpayee, Priyamani, Sharib Hashmi, and others. Samantha Akkineni is making her digital debut with the show. It will start streaming from June 4 on Amazon Prime Video.
