Samantha Akkineni talks about her character in The Family Man 

Samantha Akkineni's performance was one of the highlights of 'The Family Man' season 2. Although her character was criticised upon the release of the trailer but eventually people loved her. The actress herself believes that the character is close to her heart and it's a tribute to people who paid the ultimate price in an unjust war.

Recently, Samantha expressed her opinion through an Instagram post. She wrote, “When @rajanddk approached me to do the character, I was aware that portraying Raji’s character required sensitivity and balance. The creative team shared documentaries of the Tamil struggle that included stories of women in the Eelam war. When I watched those documentaries, I was aghast and shocked by the troubles and unspeakable grief that the Tamils of Eelam went through over an extended period of time."

The actress further added, "I noticed that the aforementioned documentaries had only a few thousand views and that is when it dawned on me how the world just looked away when tens of thousands people of Eelam lost their lives. And, lakhs more lost their livelihood and their homes. *Countless many* continue to live in far away lands with the wounds of the civil strife still fresh in their hearts and minds.”
