Samantha's debut web series 'The Family Man Season 2' lands in major controversy after its Trailer depicts the "Eelam Tamils in a highly objectionable manner". On Monday, Tamil Nadu Minister for Information and Broadcasting, Mano Thangaraj has written to Union Minister for Information and Broadcasting, Prakash Javedkar to immediately ban or stop the screening of the "Family Man-2" web series on OTT platform Amazon Prime throughout the country.
In the letter, the state minister said that the Manoj Bajpayee-Samantha-starrer not only hurts the sentiments of the Eelam Tamils but also the feelings of the people of Tamil Nadu.
Mano Thangaraj in the letter said: "Branding Tamil speaking actress Samantha as a "terrorist" in the series was directly an attack on the pride of Tamil population living around the world and no one would tolerate this kind of motivated and mischievous campaign."
MDMK leader Vaiko had on Sunday made a similar plea to both Javedkar and Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M.K. Stalin. Naam Tamilar Katchi leader and actor-director Seeman had also called for a ban on the series.
