Samantha Akkineni will be seen in the sequel to the espionage and mystery drama The Family Man, which is part of the Amazon Prime Video Originals roster. Samantha will be making her over the top (OTT) debut, as well as Hindi debut with the sequel of The Family Man. Moreover, Samantha will also be seen as the antagonist for the first time in her career with her role as Raji in The Family Man.
While The Family Man marks a number of firsts for Samantha, there is one more first the actress could tick off from the list. The Family Man began trending on Twitter yesterday and the reason for it being the new emoji which was released for the series. The emoji has both Manoj Bajpai (lead actor) and Samantha, and also made Samantha the first Indian actress to receive a Twitter emoji. Samantha herself was surprised by this fact and showed it in a tweet.
