EXCLUSIVE: Manoj Bajpayee gives a hint about The Family Man Season 3 release date
The Family Man 2 starring Manoj Bajpayee, Samantha Akkineni and Sharib Hashmi in the lead roles has been garnering immense love and adulation. The second season has managed to raise the bar like nothing else when it comes to Indian OTT offerings. In a candid and exclusive chat with Manoj Bajpayee aka Srikant Tiwari, we asked about their plans for Season 3. It is already been shown that Season 3 for The Family Man will be set in North East India.
When asked when do they possibly begin shooting and when can we expect it to release, Manoj Bajpayee said, “Nothing at this point of time. There is a lockdown, we cannot even meet up. There are no writers in office, everyone has gone to their hometowns. Raj and DK are also not together right now. Let the world open. When the world opens, and once we get the green-lit, we will work on it. The story is with them, once it gets a go ahead, it will turn into a screenplay. If everything goes right, it will still take another one and a half year or more, for the third season to be ready.”
About the success of The Family Man 2, Manoj Bajpayee said that they were not expecting this and are overwhelmed beyond words. “The furore and frenzy is unprecedented and we did not expect it to be this huge. We are so glad that people are loving it,” he added.
Manoj Bajpayee plays the role of Srikant Tiwari, Sharib Hashmi played JK and Samantha Akkineni played Raji in The Family Man 2. The show premiered on Amazon Prime Video. It has been written by Raj and DK and has been appreciated globally for the content.
