Manoj Bajpayee has broken his silence on the issues concerning his show.
A day or so after director duo, Raj and DK made a statement concerning the controversy surrounding their upcoming Amazon Prime Video show, The Family Man 2, actor Manoj Bajpayee has also spoken about it in an interview with a leading entertainment portal. Bajpayee plays the lead role in the show which will also feature Samantha Akkineni. The concern and cause for the controversy is that some people believe it shows Eelam Tamils in a bad light.
“Humare team mein jo main leaders hai, jo lead kar rahe hai iss show ko, khaas kar ke season two ko, yeh jyadatar Tamilians hai (The ones leading our show, especially the second season, are primarily Tamilians). Raj and DK, Samantha (Akkineni), Priyamani, Suman (Kumar), who is the writer… Who can be a better person than these guys to safeguard the interests of Tamil people, friends and viewers? I don’t think anybody can be better than them. They are the people who have been leading this show, they have created this show and they have done everything possible to show their respect for the Tamil culture and sensibilities,” Bajpayee has said. Let’s hope this puts all concerns to rest.
