ACTRESS SAMANTHA REVEALS THE REASON TO CHOOSE THE CHARACTER RAJI

Family Man 2 web series is released on Amazon Prime video in Hindi and is receiving positive comments. The movie features Samantha Akkineni and Manoj Bajpayee in the lead roles and also stars Sharib Hashmi, Priyamani, Dalip Tahil, Sharad Kelkar, Darshan Kumaarin in important roles.

The movie’s trailer faced lot of criticisms saying that it is against Tamilians and Actress Samantha as a Tamil Actress faced a lot of humiliations and criticisms because of this movie. But, now the movie is receiving positive comments and actress Samantha is receiving appreciations for playing such a bold role.

 

Today( June 5), Actress Samantha took her official Instagram page to given reasons about why she chose the character Raji in Family Man 2. She shared a picture with the directors, she wrote, “Reading all the reviews and comments fills my heart with so much joy… RAJI will always be special. When @rajanddk approached me to do the character, I was aware that portraying Raji’s character required sensitivity and balance. The creative team shared documentaries of the Tamil struggle that included stories of women in the Eelam war. When I watched those documentaries, I was aghast and shocked by the troubles and unspeakable grief that the Tamils of Eelam went through over an extended period of time.

 

I noticed that the aforementioned documentaries had only a few thousand views and that is when it dawned on me how the world just looked away when tens of thousands people of Eelam lost their lives. And, lakhs more lost their livelihood and their homes. Countless many continue to live in far-away lands with the wounds of the civil strife still fresh in their hearts and minds.

 

Raji’s story, though fictional, to me, is a tribute to those that died because of an unequal war, and those who continue to live in the painful memory of the war. I was particular about Raji’s portrayal being balanced, nuanced, and sensitive. I want Raji’s story to be a stark, much-needed reminder for us, more than ever before, to come together as humans to fight hate, oppression, and greed. If we fail to do so, countless more will be denied their identity, liberty, and their right to self-determination.”
