Manoj Bajpayee starrer The Family Man 2 opened to a unanimously positive response since its release last week. Samantha Akkineni, who had played the role of Raji, an LTTE terrorist, in the show is receiving a hefty amount of appreciation for the same. Talking about the action sequences in the show, the actress revealed that all the stunts were authentic and performed by her. She thanked the choreographer Yannick Ben for prepping her well and helping her conquer the fear of heights.

Samantha, sharing a BTS video on her Instagram handle, said, “A special special thankyouuuu to my person @yannickben for training me to do all of my own stunts (yes all of them) for pushing me to give it my all even when every part of my body ached (thanks for the pain killers by the way). I have a solid fear of heights but I jumped off that building only because I knew you had my back... lots and lots of love @yannickben #familymanseason2.”


Recently, speculations about the third season of the show have been all around social media. Talking about the same, Manoj Bajpayee opined, “There's a lot of work that goes into the making a season. I will be very happy if Amazon and Raj and DK decide to do a season three but before that, the writing has to be complete. All the formalities need to be finished. I'm ecstatic that people have started demanding season three.” The Amazon Prime original series also stars Priyamani, Sunny Hinduja and Sharib Hashmi in crucial roles.
