Samantha Akkineni's family is worried about the reaction to the Family Man trailer. Her protective father-in-law, Telugu superstar Nagarjuna, has been asked not to comment on the protests.
But Nag is clearly “super-annoyed” by the “premature protests.” Says a source close to the family, “Nag is no stranger to protests. But he won’t tolerate his children being attacked. And Sam, as he affectionately calls her, is like a daughter of the family. Nag gets very upset to see any of his children in a vulnerable situation.”
The savage trolling targets Samantha for allegedly hurting Tamil sentiments by playing what some have seen as a terrorist with Pakistan links.
The brouhaha is a matter of concern for Nagarjuna and his son Nag Chaitanya.
The family is hoping to see all the controversies die down once the series is aired. In the meanwhile Samantha has been instructed by the show producers Amazon to not comment on the issue at all.
