The Family Man season 2 got rave reviews from critics and fans, and even before its release on OTT, the makers confirmed the third season of the show. Raj & DK have already started working on the script for the third season. Vijay Sethupathi, who was supposed to be a part of the second season, is said to now make an entry into the show with the next season.
While his fans were excited to see him in the show, Sethupathi spilled the beans on the show and revealed if he is a part of the third season or not. Talking to SpotBoyE, the south star said, “I am only doing Raj and DK’s web series with Shahid Kapoor. I haven’t been offered any series or film with Manoj Bajpayee though I’d love to work with him.”
Sethupathi was earlier offered the role of the leader of a Sri Lankan militant group. The actor has rejected the role at that time and has suggested Mime Gopi’s name for the same. Speaking about season 3 of The Family Man, the director of the show, Raj Nidimoru had told Firstpost, “We are behind this time. We have the world in place, we have the concept, we have an idea, and the foundation to some extent. But we’re still developing the story. This time, we’re actually seeing the feedback, and there’s a deluge of it. We need to regroup, clear our heads, and sit and start writing it so that we’re not too influenced but are still cognizant of what was great and what was not.”
Meanwhile, Vijay Sethupathi has many projects lined up for release including a silent Bollywood film, titled Gandhi Talks. The film is written, directed and produced by Kishor Pandurang Belekar. Talking about the project, Belekar revealed. “This project has been very close to my heart and when the actor himself relates with the idea and same emotions, it is really a boon for the director. For me, Vijay Sethupathi is that actor who can justify this challenging script with his performance. As soon as Vijay read the script, he completely understood my vision and approach towards the film.”
