Recently released season 2 of the web series ‘The Family Man’ was a big hit.
One of the many reasons behind the success of Family Man 2 was the character of Chellam sir. The character has been portrayed by Uday Mahesh.
The lead role of Srikant Tiwari has been played by Manoj Bajpayee who often turns to Chellam sir for help when he is in a tough situation.
In a recent interview with SpotboyE, Manoj Bajpayee reveals the person who is Chellam sir for him in real life.
In a recent conversation with SpotboyE, Manoj Bajpayee said, “So in my life there too many (characters like Chellam sir), for all the films and anything, you know, there are directors who I love and admire like, Neeraj Pandey or Abhishek Chaubey or Raj & DK or Anurag Kashyap all of these people I always call them. But one of the three directors – Suparn Verma – of The Family Man, he can be a Chellam Sir. He is somebody who has answers for everything, so I call him any time.”
Co-director Suparn Varma who joined only in the second season and directed a few episodes, told the SpotboyE, “My pressure began in a different way that Raj and DK are my dear friends and I couldn’t s**** up their baby and I had to step up 500 per cent to ensure that season two made them proud. So my pressure was not from audience expectations.”
Chellam sir is a retired spy in the series who often comes to the rescue of Srikant Tiwari. He is a 51-year-old actor who is a writer and director in Tamil cinema.
