Amazon Prime Video's original Family Man 2 was started on the OTT platform earlier this week and has been receiving good reviews. The web series has been trending on the OTT platform.

However, the OTT platform is hitting the headlines for bad reasons as the series has hurt the sentiments of the Tamil people. People from Tamil Nadu are demanding to boycott the platform for reportedly showing the struggles of Tamil Sri Lankans in a bad light.

A section of Tamil people is extending their support for the demand to boycott Amazon Prime on social media. #BoycottAmazon is trending across social media platforms.

Earlier, the Tamil Nadu government in its letter to the union government sought a ban on the series to not release it on the OTT platform. The government found fault with project Tamil rebels in a bad light.

Actress Samantha played a Tamil rebel role Raji in the web series. This added fuel to the controversy. Tamil people are targeting the actress for playing the role despite hailing from Tamil land.
