Raj and DK open up about receiving comments on Samantha's skin tone!

The south diva Samantha Akkineni's remarkable act alongside Manoj Bajpayee and Priya Mani in The Family Man 2 has left the viewers stunned. She has made her Hindi web debut on an impressive note. But, a section of the viewers lately raised a few questions over certain scenes and also on Samantha Akkineni's skin tone in the show.  After getting many comments, makers Raj and DK have finally responded on why it was necessary for Samantha to look that way as Raji in the second season of The Family Man 2.
Raj talked about the same saying Sam plays the role of a soldier who is living under harsh and edgy conditions. "It’s really the character. At the end of it, if we look down upon such things in the context of beauty by saying somebody is dark, somebody is fair, here she is a soldier. She is a warrior, a weapon, a person who is living under harsh, rough, and edgy circumstances. So, it’s like how she learnt to fight so convincingly, I don’t know if you have seen a female character fight so convincingly before, all credits to Samantha, the idea was to make her into that." He further added saying it was just the right get up and nothing to do with the beauty.
On the other side, DK told Samantha had to look a certain way and it was a whole packaging. "There is no commentary about the skin colour. This is just the way she is," the filmmaker stated in a media chat.
