Manoj Bajpayee starrer ‘The Family Man 2’ has got into controversy ahead of its premiere on Over The Top (OTT) platform on June 4.

The Amazon Prime web series trailer is said to be depicting Tamils in a bad light and branding them as a terrorist, according to Naam Tamilar Katchi (NTK) Founder Seeman. He has also demanded a ban on the series as it portrays Tamils as vicious and the Liberation Tiger for Tamil Eelam (LTTE) as terrorists.

In a statement, he said that the trailer of ‘The Family Man 2’ is shocking.

According to him, the web series revolves around an Eelam – in Sri Lanka- woman who is portrayed as a militant.

“The colour of her dress resembles that of an LTTE uniform, with dialogues referring to links between the militant group and the Pakistani ISI,” said Seeman.

“In a situation where 2 lakh Tamils in Eelam have been slaughtered by the tyranny of Sinhala chauvinism, the attempt to portray the Tamils as terrorists through a web series that stand as the greatest democrats and seeking justice in the international forums through moral and legal struggle is highly condemnable,” he added.

Seeman also said that if the makers “refuse to ban the show, release it country-wide and try to create a false impression about Tamil people, I warn that they will have to face dire consequences.”
