Amazon Prime Video’s The Family Man has carved a dedicated fanbase and niche for itself ever since it was released on the streaming platform on September 20, 2019, exactly two years ago. Today, Manoj Bajpayee took to Instagram to celebrate the two-year anniversary of the fan-favourite series and raised a toast to the rollercoaster journey.
He shared a short visual on his Instagram, sort of a character stamp.
In another post, he wrote,"And it all started with season 1 !! #2yearsofhefamilyman 🙏🙏🙏."
The Aligarh actor also reshared Sharib Hashmi aka JK Talpade’s post that had a clip from the first episode of the show. He wrote, “"GANPATI Bappa Morya!!!.
Raj and DK’s spy drama features the brilliant Manoj Bajpayee in the lead role of a spy Srikant Tiwari, who covertly works for TASC (Threat Analysis and Surveillance Cell). He busts and foils terrorism by the night and day, trying to work a balance between being a family man and a spy. Alongside him, Sharib Hashmi, Priyamani, Ashlesha Thakur, Sunny Hinduja, Shreya Dhanwanthary, Neeraj Madhav, Sharad Kelkar, Vedant Sinha, Gul Panag and Shahad Ali are seen in significant parts.
The Family Man season 2 brought many new additions to its cast that included the talented Samantha Akkineni as the Sri Lankan Tamil liberation fighter. While it sparked several debates due to the controversial portrayal of Tamil people and culture, the second chapter also swept many fans off their feet with the thrill, gritty plot, and the pace. This time, things get personal for Shrikant and the stakes are much higher.
Manoj Bajpayee went on to win the Best Performance Male in a series award at the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne for his bang-on performance, while Samantha Akkineni bagged the Best Performance Female in a series, for her outstanding portrayal of Raji.
The last episode of the season has made it evident that there will be a third season to the thriller series, and all Shrikant fans can’t be happier.
