The highly anticipated web series The Family Man 2 is now streaming on Amazon Prime Video. In the trailer, we had seen that he had left the TASC and is now working a 9-5 job which is nowhere close to the thrill and excitement of his previous job. Wanting out and fast, Srikant takes to Twitter to state that he is looking out for a job. It was no surprise to see the CEOs of brands like Dunzo, NearBuy, Xiaomi, and OYO get in touch with Srikant saying that it’ll be their absolute pleasure to interview him.
What followed were a series of interesting virtual interviews with these much-admired business leaders that created quite the stir in the corporate world and amongst fans of the series. While Srikant is known to crack the most challenging of missions with relative ease, the videos, just like the show, have us on the edge of our seat as we wait to see if he can come out on top in the interviews as well.
In these hilarious videos, Srikant is seen desperately trying to crack the interviews in his own unique style, interacting with some industry big-wigs like Ritesh Agarwal (CEO, OYO), Manu Kumar Jain (Vice President, Xiaomi), Ankur Warikoo (Co-founder, NearBuy) & Kabeer Biswas (CEO, Dunzo). Srikant finds himself stuck in sticky situations as Ankur tells him that the HR team will do a background check of his previous job. In another interview with Xiaomi Vice President Manu Kumar Jain, we see him being asked to submit a case study of his work, which has him stumped. What takes the cake is the interview with CEO of OYO, Ritesh Aggarwal. Not only does it see both of them talking about how young they’re looking and attributing their fitness to yoga, but also sees JK messaging him right in the middle of the meeting asking him to join him on a mission.
Talking about this unique and fun interview Ankur Warikoo, Co-founder of Nearbuy said, “Srikant (Manoj Bajpayee’s character in the show) is a super talented guy. Would have loved for him to be part of Nearbuy. Not sure why the reference check aspect of his interview made him get all weird. Love such talent, sad he could not join us!”
Manu Kumar Jain, Vice President of Xiaomi added, “It was an absolute delight to collaborate with the team of Amazon Prime Video for the upcoming season of Family Man. It was great to have Srikant interview with us. He promises to be a high-performing individual both on reel and in real life much like Mi TV, India’s No. 1 Smart TV brand. We are confident that with the passion he has, the new season of Family Man will continue to be one of the most popular shows amongst the audiences.”
Talking about the fun integration – Sushant Sreeram, Director, Marketing at Amazon Prime Video for India, said, “As India’s much loved video streaming service, we have had the opportunity to build immersive worlds for our viewers with blockbuster series like The Family Man. A big part of building that on-going relationship with our viewers is to bring elements from reel life to real life and vice–versa. Srikant Tiwari on a job-hunt is just that – a much-loved character doing something many of us have experienced in real life. We had a ball working with leaders of some of the most exciting startups in the country right now, putting together this fun job-hunt campaign for our customers. Who is going to hire the not-so-minimum guy? Tune in to Amazon Prime Video on the 4th of June to find out!”
