New Delhi: The trailer of Manoj Bajpayee’s upcoming series ‘The Family Man 2’ has been released on the OTT platform Amazon Prime Video on May 19. The fans are giving very good reactions regarding the trailer. This time the series is going to be even more special for the fans, because in ‘The Family Man 2’, along with Manoj Bajpayee, South Indian film actress Samantha Akkineni will also be seen, which fans are very excited to see. However on the other hand the fans are also angry about Samantha playing the role of a terrorist.
Meanwhile, in the trailer, Samantha’s husband and South Indian actor Naga Chaitanya has also reacted. Naga Chaitanya is impressed with his wife’s actions and has given the trailer a ranking of 10 out of 10. Actually, Samantha tweeted the trailer on her official Twitter handle and wrote, ‘Hope you like it. #TheFamilyManOnPrime trailer out now.’ On this, her hubby reacted and wrote, “Love it !! 10/10/”
Also, Bollywood actress Kangana Ranaut has also praised Samantha’s character. Kangana is known for praising very few film stars and Samantha’s name has been added among those. Kangana has shared a picture of Samantha’s character from ‘The Family Man 2’ on social media and praised her. She shared a screenshot from Family Man’s trailer of Samantha’s character on her Insta story. With this, Kangana wrote, “This girl has my heart.”
The second season features Telugu actress Samantha Akkineni as the main villain. Due to this, the South Indian fans were waiting for the series, but as the trailer went out on social media, the controversy started taking shape, and with The Family Man season 2; Samantha Shame On You, Family Man 2 Against Tamilians, and LTTE started trending on Twitter. These hashtags suggest that The Family Man 2 has angered Tamil audiences. While many users demanded an apology from directors Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK (Raj & DK), several users threatened to boycott Amazon Prime Video.
In fact, some users feel that the Tamil community has been shown to be militant through Samantha’s character Raji. The trailer shows Raji fighting for a separate state for the Tamils, which is very similar to the LTTE movement. This has annoyed the users on social media. One user wrote that I am surprised to see Samantha playing this role. Some users have questioned the connection between LTTE and ISI. Also, some have threatened Samatha to be banned in the Tamil industry.
