Hyderabad: OTT platforms are stealing the thunder from mainstream cinema these days. These web series which have innovative content coupled with bold narration, interesting setup and awesome performances are ruling the roost right now. Sacred Games, Mirzapur, Bard Of Blood are few examples which have created a huge following among the audience in recent times. Another impressive series adding up to the reputation of OTT platforms is ‘The Family Man’ starring Manoj Bajpayee and Priyamani in pivotal roles. This series directed by Raj and DK is garnering huge response from all the quarters. From high-handed critics to layman everyone is stunned by The Family Man which depicts the story of a middle-class man secretly working for the T.A.S.C branch of National Investigation Agency.
After the super success of the first season, the makers are gearing up for the second season of the series. And this time Tollywood Diva Samantha Akkineni is signed to play one of the most important roles of the series. Our sources claim that it is going to be a dark negative character. Samantha has already done a negative role in Tamil in the movie Super Deluxe but this one is going to be really dark and edgy. It would be interesting to see how Samantha will own it once again.
Samantha is flying high these days after the success of her last movie Oh Baby. Right now she has only one film in her hand which is the remake of Tamil hit ’96’ with Sharwanand. Dil Raju is producing it and the director of the original C. Prem Kumar is handling the Telugu version too.
