Web-series “The Family Man” co-director Suparn Verma said that after the controversy surrounding the “Tandav” series of “Amazon Prime Video”, he was worried about how the audience would like his series. This web-series ‘The Family Man’ by Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK is being aired on ‘Amazon Prime’ from June 4. The series has been appreciated by both the critics and the audience. The series, starring Manoj Bajpayee, was earlier scheduled to release in February, but its release was pushed ahead after the controversy surrounding the web series ‘Tandav’.
The makers of Saif Ali Khan starrer ‘Tandav’ were accused of hurting religious sentiments and several FIRs were also registered against it. We were worried about what happened with ‘Tandav’, Verma said. It was a common concern, not just us but every show you are working on. It makes you think that who might feel bad and you have no idea because anyone can feel bad about anything.” He added, “We watched our show, we knew That what we are doing, we didn’t do anything to impress anyone, it was an integral part of the show. But we were also worried about how it would be taken.
