The Family Man Season 2 Cast: Who is in it?
While much of ‘The Family Man’ season 2 remains under wraps, the actors playing the central characters are most likely to return for the much-anticipated installment. The main cast includes Manoj Bajpayee as Srikant Tiwari, Suchitra Iyer as Priyamani, Sharib Hashmi as JK Talpade, Neeraj Madhav as Moosa Rahman Al Qatil, Kishore as Imraan Pasha, Gul Panag as Saloni, Shreya Dhanwanthary as Zoya, and Darshan Kumaar as Major Sameer.
As far as new additions go, Telugu actress Samantha Akkineni is now a part of the cast of season 2, which marks her digital debut. However, the creators still haven’t disclosed the details about the character she’ll be portraying.
The Family Man Season 2 Plot: What can it be About?
The topsy-turvy-roller-coaster-ride of a first season features Srikant and his team pull all stops to protect the nation from a noxious terrorist Mission Zulfiqar. In the season 1 finale, the Threat Analysis and Surveillance Cell (T.A.S.C.) comes to a crashing realization that Moosa’s fatal plan involves recreating the Bhopal gas Tragedy in the capital New Delhi. The critical final minutes showcases the pressure reaching a life-threatening limit where the toxic gases start leaking. Subsequently, one of the containers bursts open, and the credits roll, leaving the story on a massive cliffhanger.
The season 2 is expected to pick up where season 1 ends and that makes it a promising installment that’s bound to pack in an abundant amount of adrenaline-inducing suspense. Fans reeling from the season 1 finale will get to witness whether T.A.S.C. will be able to save the day or not in the upcoming season. We can also expect Srikant and his team to tackle the root of Zulfikar’s mission, which can possibly lead the story to a new landscape – London.
