The Family Man S2 have received rave reviews from the audience for Manoj Bajpayee’s performance and actors Samantha Ruth Prabhu’s hard-hitting portrayal of Raji. The audience since then have been eagerly waiting for Season 3, to which the writer of The Family Man, Suparn Verma revealed “Raaji will be alive and will kill Shuchi.

Speaking candidly to Khul Ke about his journey he shared, “I started my career as a journalist which paved a way for my journey as a script writer and later as a director. As a director, I believe I’m nothing without my script writer. I aim to work with the best of the collaborators and believe in magic.” He also stated how Samantha Ruth Prabhu was always the first choice for the role of Raaji and how he enjoyed creating layers and perspectives for her character.
“While drafting The Family Man S2, we did not know what the response from the audience would be. We as writers write honestly without fear. Appreciation and criticism are a part and parcel of life. After the success of The Family Man, I am glad that people do not have to push for work for me and I have earned the right of refusal without any fear”, Suparn revealed.
