The audience was eagerly waiting for the second season of ‘The Family Man’ and with its trailer release, the wait seemed more excited! But looks like, the show ‘The Family Man 2’ has landed itself in controversy even before its release.
Tamil Nadu Government is not happy with the trailer as the show depicts the Eelam Tamils in a highly objectionable manner.
TN government wrote a letter to Information and Broadcast Minister Prakash Javadekar asking for the stop or ban the release of ‘The Family Man 2’ in OTT not just in Tamil Nadu but across the country.
In an open letter, many objections have been raised against the content of the show. It starts with, “I would like to bring to your notice about the condemnable, inappropriate and malicious contents of The Family Man 2 serial in Hindi, which depicts the Eelam Tamils in a highly objectionable manner. The trailer of the above said serial which was released in the social media network is aimed at discrediting and distorting the historical struggle of Eelam Tamils in Sri Lanka.”
Another part of the letter reads, “For example, branding Tamil-speaking actress Samantha as terrorist in the serial is directly an attack on the pride of Tamils living around the world and no one will tolerate this kind of motivated and mischievous campaign.”
The last part of the letter reads as, “I would like to state that the above serial has not only hurt the sentiments of Eelam Tamils but also the feelings of the people of Tamil Nadu in large-scale and if allowed to broadcast, it would be prejudicial to the maintenance of harmony in the state.”
The show has been created by Raj and DK and is all set to premiere on Amazon Prime Video on June 4.
