The Family Man 2 trailer: Manoj Bajpayee meets Samantha Akkineni

By Nitesh Pratap

The makers of Manoj Bajpayee, Samantha Akkineni-starrer on Wednesday released the trailer of The Family Man Season 2, setting in motion the countdown to the premiere of the much-delayed web series, which will now release on June 4.

Manoj reprises his role of Srikant Tiwari, while Samantha essays the role of Raji, a Sri Lankan Tamilian and his new nemesis. The Family Man 2 will also mark Samantha’s digital debut.

The trailer opens with a glimpse into the troubles that Manoj’s character Srikant is facing in his marriage. The comic timing and wit that he had in season one, is intact and he has switched jobs to be at a more peaceful location.

The second season was supposed to land online in February this year. However, days ahead of the scheduled release of the trailer, the series was postponed. 

The new season will also star Seema Biswas, Sharad Kelkar, Darshan Kumar, Sunny Hinduja, Shahab Ali, Shreya Dhanwantary, Mahek Thakur and Vedant Sinha.

Creators Raj and DK said in a statement, “As creators, we have been waiting for a pretty long time to share the trailer of the much-awaited new season of The Family Man today. We promised the season will be out by end of this summer, and we are glad that we just about kept that promise.”

They added, “The wait will finally be over on 4 June as Srikant Tiwari will return with a thrilling storyline, and ‘danger really has a new face’ — Samantha Akkineni, who has done a tremendous job, along with the always-fantastic ensemble cast. We are confident we have carved out an exciting season for you all, despite having to work through the pandemic. Hopefully, the new season will be worth the wait.”
