During her episode, Karan asked her the reason behind what attracted her to take up the role of the antagonist Raji in The Family Man 2 and whether it was an already existing camaraderie with Raj & DK to which she replied saying, “No, I didn't know, Raj & DK at all and even The Family Man season 1 hadn't released when I started shooting for the season 2."

She added, "So it was just this cry for a challenge because you know you get typecast with the roles that you are offered in the south, not because of any fault of theirs but directors saw me a certain way the bubbly cute, love interest and I was feeling stifled and I really wanted to breakthrough and here there was an opportunity to look at myself through another lens and I grabbed it... It was divine intervention”

Samantha Ruth Prabhu is all set to entertain all of us with many projects in her lineup including Citadel with Varun Dhawan where she will again be reuniting with Raj & DK.
