Manoj Bajpai on streaming of ‘The Family Man 2’ being postponed
I think that Amazon is represented by some very responsible and intelligent people in India and they know what’s best for the Show and we trust them, says Manoj Bajpai
The decision to postpone the steaming date for Season 2 of Raj and DK’s eagerly awaited The Family Man has thrown many associated with the series off guard.
But not Manoj Bajpai who plays the central role in The Family Man.
He says, “As an actor in the series I don’t have any communication as to why it got postponed. I trust Amazon’s decision, whatever the reason may be. Also I think that Amazon is represented by some very responsible and intelligent people in India and they know what’s best for the Show and we trust them. All I will say jab bhi aayenge, dhamake ke saath ayenge”, (whenever we come we will come with a bang!), and he laughs loudly.
One major reason why Manoj has elected to do a web series at this juncture is the reach. “The audience for a web series is staggering. For the same films of mine that were closed down in theatres even before they got a chance to be seen I’ve audiences on the internet coming up to tell me how much they like the film.”
Manoj chose The Family Man as his web debut for its relevance. “It is about an unsung hero, someone who constantly jeopardizes his life for the country at the cost of his family life. I did it because I loved the script. Also, I’ve been meaning to work with Raj and DK for some time now. I’ve seen Goa Goa Gone. I liked its fresh energy and the directors’ appetite for the edgy and wacky.”
