While the web world continues to bloom in all ways possible, this year witnessed a controversy break out of nowhere leading to a lot of chaos. When Tandav was released back in January 2021 on Amazon Prime Video, it invited a lot of flak followed by trends about boycotting the show and other things. In fact, it also led to a couple of legal cases on the streaming service back then. While Tandav was affected immensely indeed, one of the most awaited shows back then, The Family Man Season 2 was also quite affected by it.
Just on the brink of this controversy, The Family Man Season 2 had released a teaser and was scheduled to release then. However, after this wrath, the show was indefinitely delayed and there were constant rumors that owing to the flak on Tandav, the delay is to give The Family Man Season 2 cuts so that it doesn't face the same wrath.
However, now, all this time later, The Family Man Season 2 released and went on to be successful yet again and not many thought that there were obvious cuts that affected the storyline. Talking about it with Indian Epress recently, leading man Manoj Bajpayee said, “It is overstated. The Family Man season 2 was complete and was ready for release when the Tandav episode happened. Did you ever feel in The Family Man that it is censored? If at all we were worried, it was about the protest that was coming from a different part of the country.”
He added, “But we were very confident that once people saw the show, they would understand that it is about them. Raj and DK and the writers put all the sides of debates in the script for people to decide. That’s a great way to put all the arguments in the script."
Well, we were just glad The Family Man Season 2 lived up to the first season.
