Amazon Prime’s, The Family Man, featuring Manoj Bajpayee in the lead role has been loved by audiences and critics alike. While fans are eagerly anticipating a sequel to the thriller drama, writer duo Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK or more fondly known as Raj and DK have some good news for you guys.
Speaking to Hindustan Times in their recent interview, Raj and DK have spilled the beans on a possible sequel. The duo has said, “It has to be made. There is a lot of excitement for it. We have a story. Yes, it will be made.”
With so much appreciation coming their way, there is one constant question the duo has been receiving as to why the series was not made into a fully-fledged feature film. Revealing the reason behind it, Raj first spoke about a fan reaction that they recently received, “One of the best compliments was someone saying they watched it three times back to back. We thought ‘why would you do that?’ The person said he couldn’t believe so much was there in a series, so many layers to it. They were fascinated.’ The show revolves around Manoj’s character, who is hiding the fact that he is an on-ground secret agent, from his family.”
And then finally revealing that they could not sum up so much content in a two and a half-hour film, Raj & DK said, “We were waiting for a good platform to come along, we wanted to get on the bigger ones. We had the concept of it, the character, theme, and idea, but we held on to it for a couple of years to make sure we were doing it at the right time with the right people. We knew a two-hour film won’t do justice to it.”
For the unversed, Raj and DK have helmed films like Go Goa Gone and Stree to their credit.
