It’s more than a year ago that Manoj Bajpayee and Sharib Hashmi starrer The Family Man entertained the audience. With the first season ending on a high note, fans are eagerly waiting for the second season. The show’s lead Manoj Bajpayee in conversation with Lehren spilt the beans about makers planning to unveil the release date soon. On being quizzed if the actor has anything pending to be shot, he replied wrapping the shoot for the much-awaited series long back.
However, due to the lockdown, the post-production work has been delayed. He said, “We’re going to get a release date from Amazon very soon.” Adding further he said, “Long back, last year itself. But the lockdown has really slowed down the post-production work.” The actor was recently down with COVID-19, he shared feeling bad as he would not promote his show, Silence, a thriller on Zee5 in full swing. He said, “I was promoting Silence (the cop thriller on Zee5) at the same time. No matter how bad I was feeling, I was still working from home. The promotion of Silence was very difficult for me because I was the main face, so I had to be a part of all the interviews.”
He adds, “I was feeling very weak, completely down, but I still had to it. And that kept me away from my own condition.”
Also speaking about how his friends from the industry inquired about his health thus leaving him overwhelmed with the feeling that there is someone who cares for you. “I must mention that people like Farah Khan, Abhishek (Bachchan), Anupam Kher, Neeraj Pandey, these are the people who have always enquired about my health almost every day. Farah is my neighbour. She’s been sending food and enquiring about my health. Really taking care. Anupam, Abhishek Bachchan, Neeraj Pandey.” ALSO READ: Manoj Bajpayee On The Family Man 2 Being Pushed Ahead, 'Jab Bhi Aayenge Dhamake Le Kar Aayenge' - EXCLUSIVE
