Earlier, Samantha had shared the creative process that went behind her character in The Family Man 2. Revealing that the creative team sent documentaries of the women involved in the Tamil Eelam war, she said, "Raji's story, though fictional, to me, is a tribute to those that died because of an unequal war, and those who continue to live in the painful memory of the war. I was particular about Raji's portrayal being balanced, nuanced, and sensitive."

The Family Man 2 released on 4 June on Amazon Prime Video.
