In a tweet written in Tamil, Seeman said, “If ‘The Family Man 2’ which insults the Tamil people is released, then serious consequences will follow.” He has also attached a much detailed letter to the tweet which completely conveys his opinion. The letter says that he was shocked to see visuals from the trailer that shows Sri Lankan LTTE as a terrorist group and Tamils as violent people.
Seeman also went on to say that movies like Inam and Madras Cafe were banned on the same lines, especially because they faced backlash after their release. Both Inam and Madras Cafe showed LTTE in a wrong way and because of the subsequent backlash, the movies faced consequences. Inam was removed from theatres altogether and Madras Cafe did not make it to the screens in Tamil Nadu and also in the United States and United Arab Emirates, with its sizable Tamil audience.
Seeman said, “Shifting the location of a Hindi web series to Chennai, bringing in the character of a Tamil Eelam girl, basing the colour of her dress to that of the LTTE uniform and associating Pakistan’s ISI to LTTE are not actions that happened coincidentally.” The politician has said time and again that if the series is premiered as planned on June 4 then they will face serious repercussions.
தமிழர்களைக் கொச்சைப்படுத்தும் ‘தி பேமிலி மேன் 2’ இணையத்தொடரை ஒளிபரப்புவதை ரத்து செய்யாவிட்டால் மிக மோசமான எதிர்விளைவுகளைச் சந்திக்க நேரிடும்!https://t.co/5zWYIaXtAf pic.twitter.com/kQzb63Vqg7

Meanwhile, the team initially faced backlash from Netizens and is now facing the same from Seeman. However, the team has not given a reply or a clarification regarding this yet.
