The Family Man 2 NOT Releasing on Feb 12 as Amazon Prime Video Deals With Mirzapur-Tandav Fiasco?
After the big controversies that erupted with the release of Mirzapur and Tandav, seems like Amazon Prime Video is in the mood to delay the release of The Family 2 starring Manoj Bajpayee and Samantha Akkineni.
After the controversies surrounding Mirzapur and Tandav, seems like Amazon Prime Video has postponed the release of its popular show – The Family Man. The makers were releasing the second season of the show on February 12. However, the recent objections and legal proceedings against the streaming giant have made the owners take a U-turn on the release.
The directors of the show – Raj and DK, have fulfilled their duty and delivered the complete season to Amazon Prime Video. The streaming platform has though decided to put an indefinite hold on the release of The Family 2. A report published by Bollywood insider Subhash K Jha mentioned that the makers swear by their content. There’s nothing objectionable in the Manoj Bajpayee and Samantha Akkineni starrer. However, Amazon reportedly thinks that it’s better to not release anything in such sensitive times when there are already so many cases filed against them for allegedly ‘hurting the religious sentiments.’
