As per various reports, Vijay Sethupathi has been reportedly signed up by Amazon Prime India to play a crucial role in the third season of the Family Man. If this does materialize, the makers would have pulled off a major coup to probably produce the biggest ever series made in India.
The Family Man Season 2 is a blockbuster success
Not many shows in India have managed to become successful in the second season. However, overcoming all odds and controversies, the Family Man Season 2 was an extensive victory. Be it the way the sensitive story was handled or the manner in which comedy was integrated into the plot, the Amazon Prime series accomplished to woo the audience for the second consecutive time.
Samantha was the main antagonist of season two
South Indian actress Samantha proved to be an able antagonist against an acting powerhouse like Manoj Bajpayee. She managed to carve a niche of her own with a spectacular performance. Her presence also helped the makers attract viewers down south. It seems the people behind the show are in for a repeat of the strategy.
Family Man Season 3 has been confirmed
Amazon Prime has confirmed that the Family Man will be renewed for season three. In fact, at the end of season two, the makers dropped a hint that the next season would take place in the COVID times and would involve a Chinese connection. As per reports, Vijay Sethupathi has come on board to be part of this edition.
Vijay Sethupathi and Manoj Bajpayee together will be a feast
Whether he plays an antagonist or a crucial character, Vijay Sethupathi and Manoj Bajpayee sharing the screen will be a major USP of the show. It is also being said that Vijay was approached to play a role in season two. However, he was not able to sign on the dotted line. For the next edition, though, the Tamil actor is all but in. This is massive news for the fans of cinema in the country.
