Meanwhile, Samantha Akkineni finally broke her silence after the release of her Hindi web debut, The Family Man 2. She penned a long note on Instagram starting with, "Reading all the reviews and comments fills my heart with so much joy .. RAJI will always be special." She further stated that her character Raji will 'always be special'.  

"I was particular about Raji's portrayal being balanced, nuanced, and sensitive. I want Raji's story to be a stark, much-needed reminder for us, more than ever before, to come together as humans to fight hate, oppression, and greed. If we fail to do so, countless more will be denied their identity, liberty, and their right to self-determination," Sam wrote in her long Instagram post.
