Sharad Kelkar is receiving death threats from The Family Man’s fans
Days after actor Darshan Kumar revealed that he was getting online hate for his role as the antagonist in the hit series, The Family Man, actor Sharad Kelkar has shared that he is facing the same issue. In the second season The Family Man, Kelkar plays the role of Arvind, a man who could be a possible love interest for Priyamani’s Suchi. Suchi is married to Srikant who is the lead character and is played by Manoj Bajpayee.
There is a running inside joke in the series that Suchi could be cheating on Srikant with Arvind in Lonavla. The cast and crew along with the directors have maintained total secrecy on the issue. Now, Kelkar is receiving hate messages and even death threats from people who cannot seem to perceive that The Family Man is a fictional show and that Srikant and Suchi are fictional characters portrayed by actors.
“I get these messages daily like ‘Srikant and Suchi ke beech mat aao, jaan se maar denge tumko’, and I get a lot of threats too. So, I have got used to it,” Kelkar told a leading entertainment portal while also opening up on what happened in Lonavla.
“The theory in the first season became so big that Arvind is Zulfiqar actually, for whom the mission was done, and now so many memes are being made every day, like when Arvind and Suchi were in Lonavala, Chellam sir was watching us, or when Srikant was in Chennai, me and Suchi were dancing on the beach. They are damn funny and so creative, and it’s going in the favour of the show,” he added.
Priyamani has also faced hate from fans for allegedly ‘cheating’ on Srikant. “I got a lot of hate after season two. Almost every day, whatever post I put out on social media, the first thing everybody says is, ‘you shouldn’t have betrayed Srikant’, ‘you shouldn’t have done this to Srikant’, ‘why did you stab Srikant in the back?’,” she said during an interview.
