Samantha Akkineni is enjoying the success of her latest web series, The Family Man 2, which debuted on Amazon Prime Video on June 4. The diva was shown to be the role of a Tamil Tamil rebel in the spy action thriller after its debut in the digital space.
As expected, the second season of the web series has been a huge success on the streaming platform, with many people praising the cast, particularly Samantha, for her breathtaking role and acting chops. The actress expressed her gratitude for everyone’s love for her character Raji in a heartfelt note on her social media handle.
Samantha also shared a lovely behind-the-scenes photo from the set of The Family Man 2 featuring herself with the creator’s Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK, and she added that Raji is a tribute to those who died in the heartbreaking war. She wrote, “Raji’s story is a much-needed reminder for everyone to unite and fight the world’s hate, oppression, and greed.”
Notably, following the release of the trailer for The Family Man 2, Samantha received backlash from a number of social media users as well as a few Tamil Nadu politicians who were dissatisfied with her and the web series for allegedly hurting the sentiments of Eelam Tamils. There were also rumors that Samantha had been told by the producers not to comment on the situation.
On a related note, apart from the actress, the action-thriller series also stars Manoj Bajpayee, Priyamani, Sharib Hashmi, Seema Biswas, Darshan Kumar, Sharad Kelkar, Sunny Hinduja, Shreya Dhanwanthary, and Shahab Ali.
