Actress Priyamani, who has made a mark with her films across all four South-Indian languages, is testing new waters with her web-series debut The Family Man. In an interview with Cinema Express, she has proclaimed that the streaming space is indeed a ‘big thing’ for the audiences and entertainment fraternity alike.
Expressing her liking for her character Suchitra in The Family Man, she tells, “When I met the directors in Mumbai and they narrated the character of Suchitra to me, I fell in love with her. It was not just with my character, actually; each character in The Family Man is well-written and have their own importance.”
Her reason behind taking up the series was the joy of being associated with names like Raj and DK and a brand like Amazon Prime. Spilling more beans about her role, Priyamani adds, “She’s got a life of her own and has conflicts too. She’s switching jobs; her family equations are changing. She embodies the modern working woman who tries to balance the professional and personal front.”
The series will reportedly portray the tensions that are pulling the lead couple Srikant and Suchitra apart. “Though there is a strong undercurrent of love between the couple, the work pressure and other external factors make things difficult. It almost feels like they are together only for the sake of the children,” Priyamani shares. She also has high words of praise for her co-star Manoj Bajpayee whom she claims brings the best out of everyone. Aren’t you waiting for September 20 already?
