On working with Manoj Bajpayee, Priyamani says:

“We all know how amazing he is at his art. For me, working with a talented industry veteran like him was a learning experience and a thoroughly enjoyable process. He improvises on-set, and we were all on our toes, improvising with him”

Shedding light on the reason behind accepting the role, Priyamani says

“The content was truly impressive. Each scene had me hooked and I couldn’t put it down. My character, specially, is multi-layered and very relatable.”

Amazon Original Series, The Family Man highlights the struggles of a middle-class man, Srikant Tiwari (Manoj Bajpayee), who works for a special cell of the National Investigation Agency. The show uses dry humour and wit to portray Srikant’s story as he fulfills his duties towards his country and tries to protect his family from his secretive, high-pressure, low-paying job.

The series is produced and directed by Raj & DK. It marks the digital debut of two-time National Film Award-winning actor and Padma Shri honouree Manoj Bajpayee, along with National Film Award recipient, Priyamani. The Family Man will launch exclusively on Amazon Prime Video on September 20 in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
