After the release of the trailer of Family Man 2, there is a huge outrage on social media. Tamil audience is not happy about the trailer. Therefore they are demanding a ban on the release of the series. As a result before the release of the new season, #ShameonYouSamantha trends on Twitter. A section of the Tamil audience has shown disappointment towards the makers of the series. The show is all set to release on June 4.
The actress Samantha Akkineni is facing criticism for the role of a Sri Lankan Tamil rebel named Ranji. Therefore the audience has taken offense to a scene that talks about the union of ISI and rebels. However, in a statement, the makers said that they respect the sentiments of the Tamil people and meanwhile the fans should wait for the release. Further, they urged not to make any assumptions before the release.
As a person from Chennai, you should have know the sentiments of Tamil people.

Therefore last week, the Tamil Nadu government had requested the Ministry of Information & Broadcasting to ban the release of the show’s second season. In a letter to I&B Prakash Javadekar, Tamil Nadu IT minister T Mano Thangaraj said the trailer introduced Tamilians in a “highly objectionable manner”.
