Samantha Akkineni made her digital debut with the second season of The Family Man 2 which also had Manoj Bajpayee in the lead role. Majili girl is seen essaying the role of a Sri Lankan Tamil rebel named Raji. This is the first time that Sam has played an antagonist on the screen.
Manoj Bajpayee, Priyamani and Samantha Akkineni’ much-awaited web series The Family Man 2 dropped on Amazon Prime Video on 3rd June and grabbed several eyeballs. Soon after the release of the web show The Family Man 2 trailer, netizens were angry that Samantha chose to play a role that shows Tamilians in a bad light. Even “#ShameOnSamantha” started trending on Twitter. Many people are also demanding a ban on the series.
In the web show, Samantha as Raji is a trained commando and a pilot who has to settle the score with her enemies. In the starting, her character is a one who lacks the strength to fight s*xual harassment.
Her fans loved how she pulled off her role with her body language and acting skills. Samantha’ boldness in the Family man 2 has raised eyebrows. Her s*xual harassment scenes or the bed scenes have stunned a part of social media users.
