I must congratulate writers Suman and Manoj. Citing his memorable roles like Bhikhu Mhatre in Satya and Sardar Khan in Gangs of Wasseypur, Bajpayee said the audience found these parts “quite hilarious”.

It has been only two days since the second season of The Family Man started streaming on Amazon Prime Video and series lead Manoj Bajpayee says fans have already started “demanding” the third chapter. I don’t go there quite often as I really can’t type. “Now we are a family. But at the same time, for those people who are living it, it is troublesome,” he added. The Aligarh actor, however, said he was simply being true to the character. After this, Raj and DK are regarded as one of the best minds in the industry. Bajpayee, who won his maiden best actor National Award for Bhonsle earlier this year, is in a happy space for more than one reason. But I’m not trying to make you laugh, I’m putting the character in that situation, exploring his thought process and his responses. I want him to do very well. “Sharib’s success with this new season truly touches my soul. These guys are pure geniuses,” the 52-year-old actor added. While season two finale of The Family Man drops more than a hint about the potential renewal, Bajpayee, who plays Srikant Tiwari, an intelligence officer trying to balance his personal and professional life on the show, said he has no idea how the story will progress if there is a third part.https://images.indianexpress.com/2020/08/1×1.png
“There’s a lot of work that goes into making a season. “What all season three will have, I myself don’t know. Suparn Verma, who joined the directors and writers, is a very close friend of mine. All the formalities need to be finished. I think Ram Gopal Varma, Shekhar Kapur, Mani Ratnam have broken this stereotype and after them directors like Anurag Kashyap, Dibakar (Banerjee) have looked at characters in a human way.They tried to touch upon their story from their perspective.”
There is a collision between the two worlds in which these characters live, he observed. 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.

On one level, The Family Man is a face-off between the “good guys” and “bad guys”, but the show also attempts to blur this line between the two, through wholesome characters, Bajpayee said. This is the atmosphere not only on set, but also (off camera) as we keep checking on each other.”

Be it Srikant reciting the iconic Jo Jeeta Wahi Sikandar dialogue with expletives or being schooled by a younger and hyper new boss in the trailer of the sophomore season, Bajpayee has been garnering praise for his comic timing, a less explored side of his persona in the movies.

“Samantha is such a huge star. She doesn’t need anybody to validate her work but she comes in and she contributes so much to the show,” Bajpayee said praising his co-star. “So it is as much as Srikant Tiwari’s series as it is Raji’s. I see Sunny who is Sandeep bhaiya in Aspirants and then Milind in this show and Priyamani, Ashlesha and Vedant… Their success is far more touching to me than me being talked about.”
The second season marks the digital debut of South star Samantha Akkineni, as Raji, who goes toe-to-toe with Bajpayee’s Srikant as his new and powerful adversary. Created by Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK, the new season of the espionage action thriller series released on Friday after a lot of wait amid the controversy around Amazon’s shows Tandav and Mirzapur. Over two seasons, the team has become a family, which like every other brood, has its own WhatsApp group that keeps buzzing, he said. How directors or writers tell a story or create characters and the world they inhabit, makes all the difference.”

Manoj Bajpayee “I’m interested in getting the character to you in the most intelligent and honest way. Like the first season was as much Srikant’s as it was Moosa’s (played by Neeraj Madhav). His success is like my success. With mostly positive reviews coming their way, the team of The Family Man has seemed to have achieved the impossible: delivered a better season two.

We are more happy for each other than for ourselves. I’m ecstatic that people have started demanding season three,” the actor told PTI in a Zoom interview.
