Ahead of the release, Manoj thanked the whole cast and crew for working tirelessly amid the pandemic despite their personal losses and sufferings. He took to his Instagram to post a heartfelt note ahead of the premiere. He wrote, “So the day is finally here… Every filmmaker has a tale to tell at the end of every project about its highs and lows. For us, The Family Man Season 2 has proved to be our most challenging project yet. These are difficult times for all of us. There isn’t anyone amongst us untouched by loss and suffering. While we mourn the tragic loss of lives, we are grateful for the heroic actions and courage of the frontline workers and everyone working tirelessly to provide aid during these times.”
Further, he added, “For all of us, staying positive and optimistic has possibly been the hardest. The only thing that has kept us going through all of it is the constant love and appreciation (and the constant pressure) that we have received from every one of you. Having worked through a pandemic and two lockdowns, we are forever indebted to our fabulous cast, crew and Prime Video team who have persevered through it all. Season 2 drops at midnight. And one thing is overwhelmingly clear: The Family Man now belongs to you, the audience, and all its fans. We remain forever humbled by all the love we have received.”
In this season, Srikant has left his job and has started with a new career, a 9 to 5 job. In the second season, his relationship is definitely in trouble and so is he as he is not enjoying his new job. As his former assistant calls and tells him about his ‘Hostage situation case’ it excites Sri but still, he is not ready to accept the fact and go back. Soon, things pace up and Manoj finds himself in Chennai where an attack is likely being planned. South star Samantha’s character is wild, savage, and deadly. She looks absolutely stunning in her wild character. Samantha essays the role of Raji, a Sri Lankan Tamilian and a new nemesis.
The second season of The Family Man was first to be released on February 12, but before that the release of the series was postponed after the furor over Tandava. Then there was news that the second season may come in May. The first season of The Family Man was streamed on 20 September 2019 and was a huge success. In this spy thriller series, Manoj Bajpayee plays Srikanth Tiwari, a senior analyst at the intelligence agency TASC. Sharib Hashmi plays his assistant. Samantha Akkineni will also be seen as a special character in the second season.
