Confirmed: Amazon Postpones Release Of Family Man 2

Following the  beguiling brouhaha over  two of its major series  Mirzapur and Tandav, Amazon Prime Video has  decided to indefinitely postpone the release  of their next  Big Fat Indian Series.  The Family Man Season2 which  was  to stream  from February  12  stands   postponed for now.The trailer which was to release on January 19 will now be out closer to the new streaming date, whenever that may be.

Confirming this saddening development, a source  very close  to  the project tells me, “It is true.  The Family Man Season 2 has been postponed indefinitely, much to the disappointment  of Manoj Bajpai and the co-director Raj-DK.The reason is, the Brand Amazon has taken a beating in India  with two  of their most successful shows Mirzapur and  Tandav coming under the scanner for allegedly hurting popular sentiments. Amazon  doesn’t feel the  atmosphere is  conducive  to  the  release   of a big franchise  like The Family Man.”

 But The Family Man  has no controversial content at  all?

Responds the source, “You  know that. I know that. But who knows what triggers  off  an adverse reaction in the  public? Amazon would rather wait for a more opportune time  to  release an important show like The Family Man.”

The source  also adds that the  co-director Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK have nothing to do  with the  postponement. “Raj and DK have delivered the full series of  the second season  of  The Family Man  to Amazon. They have  nothing  to do with  the decision  to  hold back the series. As far as  Raj and DK are concerned the  series is ready for streaming whenever Amazon decides to do so. The co-directors have no  intention of modifying anything in  the  second season because there  is nothing even remotely objectionable in the  series.”
