The filmmaker wanted the makers to immediately stop streaming and series and announced that he is not going to be a subscriber of Amazon Prime until they stop streaming it.

தமிழ் இனத்தின் விடுதலைக்கு போராடிய இயக்கத்தின் வரலாறை கொச்சைப்படுத்தி தவறாக சித்தரிக்கும் இந்த வெப்தொடரை புறக்கணிக்கிறேன். இந்த தொடரை உடனே நிறுத்தவும். நிறுத்தும்வரை அமேசான் ஃபிரைம் சந்தாதாரராக இருக்கவோ இணையவோ போவதில்லை. @SeemanOfficial @thirumaofficial @PrimeVideoIN https://t.co/dFvoi8qTwb— Cheran (@directorcheran) June 5, 2021
Earlier, Tamil nadu government sent a letter to ban the series and Filmmaker cum Politician Seeman issued a press release warning the crew of facing dire consequences if they release the series. He believed that the dialogues and the geographical details mentioned in the recently released trailer, were not unintentional. He urged the series to be banned as it only concentrates on portraying the Tamizh people as “terrorists”.
தமிழர்களுக்கெதிரான #TheFamilyMan2 இணையத்தொடர் ஒளிபரப்பை உடனடியாக நிறுத்த வேண்டுமென வலியுறுத்துகிறேன். தவறினால், @amazon நிறுவனத்தின் எல்லா சேவைகளையும் உலகத்தமிழர்கள் அனைவரும் புறக்கணிக்கச் செய்யும் வகையில் மாபெரும் பரப்புரையைத் தீவிரமாக முன்னெடுப்போம்.@aparna1502 @PrimeVideoIN pic.twitter.com/1Mk9muc2bb— சீமான் (@SeemanOfficial) June 6, 2021
It all started when the trailer of the series released in youtube. Throughout the trailer of the “Family man 2”, we could see Samantha wearing the uniform of the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (LTTE). The dialogues also suggested that there is a hostage situation in Chennai. It has been reported that most part of the website is taking place in Chennai. LTTE also known as Tamil tigers is an organisation that attempted to establish an independent state for Tamils named “Eelam” in Sri lanka.
