Priyamani makes her web-series debut with Family Man , opposite Manoj Bajpayee

By Rinku Gupta

The latest entrant to the web-series platform is Paruthiveeran fame actor Priyamani.

Right from her initial phase of movies directed by Late veteran filmmaker Balu Mahendran followed by Bharathiraja, Ameer and Mani Ratnam, Priyamani has always been admired for her stellar performances in different roles beyond linguistic barriers and boundaries. In fact, she has been highly regarded for some  top-notch performances in other regional industries, especially for her critically acclaimed performance in ‘Thiraikathaa’. Filled with entgusiam to explore new platforms, she is all set to unleash her potential on the OTT platform now through her debut web series “The Family Man”, which is streaming on Amazon Prime Video now. 

Says she, “The first  thing I felt when approached for a web series was to go for it without any second thoughts. When the actors across all the industries, especially the big names of Bollywood are getting into it, why not me?  On the first meeting with director Raj & DK, I was totally impressed with the script and immediately got into the skin of my character Suchitra. It is not just about my character, but every role in “The Family Man” will be impressive.  Manoj Bajpayee sir plays the protagonist role of Srikant Tiwari, who always strives to balance between his middle-class family life with his designed professional career of being an espionage, without revealing this to his family. Even my character has its own importance, where Suchitra represents the working women of contemporary society, who has to push herself and make equal space for professional and family. Her main issue is  that she feels Srikanth is being completely focused on his work and has lack of importance for family…” 

Adds Priyamani , “But still, this family is good. There are some pressures from both ends, which make  Srikant and Suchitra drift away from each other though they have so much of love within for each other.” 

Priyamani says that the process of filming for web series is completely different from shooting a film. She reveals that around 5-6 scenes are shot over a day span. Interestingly, she has already started shooting for “The Family Man – Season 2”. 

The web series has some of the biggest names from Indian film industry that includes Malayalam actor Neeraj Madhav, Bollywood’s Gul Panag and  more. It maybe recalled that Priyamani made her presence felt in a peppy dance number in Rohit Shetty's hit Chennai Express, opposite Shahrukh Khan.
