Terrible things are afoot at both the home and work front but Manoj Bajpayee’s Srikant is nowhere to be found. Will he make an appearance before it is too late? The teaser of The Family Man season 2 is out, and as expected, it is taking things a notch higher. From his wife (played by Priyamani) to his colleague (played by Sharib Hashmi), everyone is calling Srikant but in vain. It is with the voiceover of his boss (Dalip Tahil) that we realise that Srikant has gone undercover.

The Family Man season 2 makers Raj and DK have teased fans with a small clip from the upcoming release. They also revealed that the trailer will arrive on January 19.

Meanwhile, Srikant’s team is on a mission and needs him too. We are then shown that Srikant is alive. Then he is seen firing a gun in an alley, blood dripping from his forehead. Samantha Akkineni, who plays a pivotal role in her debut web series in Bollywood, is also shown in The Family Man 2 teaser. She is dressed in a printed salwar kameez and gives an intriguing look above the camera. Her part in the series is highly anticipated.

Besides Manoj Bajpayee in the lead role, the new season will also feature Telugu actor Samantha Akkineni, who is making her digital debut with the series. Others like Sharib Hashmi, Shreya Dhanwanthary, Priyamani and Sunny Hinduja reprise their roles from the first season. Talking about the pressure of fans on them after the successful first season of the spy thriller, Raj and DK had earlier said, “There’s pressure from fans across the globe [to take the story ahead]. There has been an audience for such content, and the success of so many web shows in India allows us to narrate the story like it needed to be told.”

Samantha has joined the action thriller in season two, as an antagonist. Srikant, while struggling to balance his personal and professional lives, will be pitted against a new nemesis, Raji, played by Samantha. All episodes stream from from February 12 on Amazon Prime Video.
