The Family Man 2 Controversy - Directors of the series issue statement | Check Out
The Family Man: Season 2 is one of the most expected series of this year and it is all set for release on June 4. The serial features Manoj Bajpayee and Priyamani in the lead roles, while Samantha Akkineni will be seen playing a crucial character. Samantha will be making her debut in the digital space with The Family Man: Season 2 and the fans are eagerly looking forward to seeing her performance in the series. The trailer of the series released last week and it has opened to a phenomenal response from fans across the world. However, a section of the audience from Tamil Nadu was quite offended by a few shots in the trailer and the trailer became a topic of discussion.
Political leaders like Seeman and Vaiko also condemned the makers of The Family Man for the same. Seeman and a section of people from Tamil Nadu felt that the series portrays LTTE in a bad light (linking it with a terrorist group) and demanded the series to be banned. Seeman warned the makers of the consequences if the show was released. The creators of the show, Raj & DK have now addressed the controversy and have clarified that they haven't shown the Tamil people or Tamil culture in a bad light. Raj & DK said that the key members of the creative and writing department of The Family Man 2 are Tamilians and requested everyone to watch the full series and take a call.
Raj & DK's joint press statement reads, "Some assumptions and impressions have been made based on just a couple of shots in the trailer. Many of our lead cast members, as well as key members of the creative & writing team, are Tamilians. We are very cognizant of the sentiments of the Tamil people and Tamil culture and have nothing but the utmost love and respect towards our Tamil people. We have put in years of hard work into this show, and we have taken great pains to bring to our audiences a sensitive, balanced, and riveting story – much like we did in Season 1 of the show. We request everyone to wait and watch the show when it releases. We know you’ll appreciate it once you watch it".
The Family Man 2 will stream on Amazon Prime Video from June 4.
