Manoj Bajpayee has been ruling the internet since Amazon Prime Video released the teaser of the upcoming web series The Family Man 2. All the fans have been asking these days is 'Srikant Kahan Hai?' The makers have claimed that the answer to this question will be soon answered with the release of the trailer, but before that The Family Man 2 emoji has gone live on Twitter. As a promotional strategy, Amazon Prime Video has introduced a Twitter character emoji of the much-awaited show that features Manoj Bajpayee and Samantha Akkineni.
The emoji and the tag 'The Family Man 2' has been going viral on Twitter since Friday evening. Interestingly, Samantha Akkineni is reportedly the first Indian female actor to have an emoji on Twitter. The actress is very excited and has been actively responding to fans on the micro-blogging site. She even reacted to the news that she is the first female Indian actress to feature in a Twitter character emoji and wrote, "Really??"
Earlier this month, the makers unveiled the teaser of The Family Man 2 which left the fans confused. The video showed Srikant aka Bajpayee's family as well as the TASC force looking out for him as he disappeared. From Srikant's wife to JK Talpade, everyone was seen calling him and trying to seek answers about his whereabouts.
While the teaser didn't answer where Manoj Bajpayee was, the actor shared the video with the caption, "Aa raha hoon bhai, on the way hoon (I am coming, I am on the way)" Check out The Family Man 2 teaser here-
