Master-class on hit show The Family Man held at IFFI

A still from The Family man

Amazon Prime Video curated a successful master-class on ‘What Goes into Creating Cult Icons’ on Sunday evening at the ongoing 52nd edition of International Film Festival of India (IFFI). Moderated by Ankur Pathak, the hour-long session highlighted the power of authentic storytelling portrayed through realistic incidents, humour, multi-layered and well-developed characters. At the event, creators of the show Raj & DK shared, “The resounding popularity of The Family Man can be attributed to the authenticity and realism that the character of Srikant Tiwari is rooted in. The idea of this character came from observing people in everyday life and we thought that if James Bond was from Chembur, how would he be?”

Manoj Bajpayee who joined the Masterclass virtually, said, “I am part of the middle-class. I have personally experienced so much of Srikant Tiwari’s life myself in my early career. I didn’t need a reference – we are the reference.” Samantha shared what drove her to essay the character of Raji. She said, “Female actors tend to get unidimensional characters and there is this fear of your performance becoming repetitive, which can happen if you choose roles that are in a familiar emotional space. However, with Raji it was very different and exciting.”
