The Family Man 2 created quite a buzz amongst fans and garnered the likes of many. Every character did 100% justice to the role and story. Manoj Bajpayee was phenomenal as always but this series focussed the spotlight on another character too and it’s none other than – intelligence officer JK Talpade, played by Sharib Hashmi, who says he is overwhelmed by the response.

JK is that one friend we all need in life. Perfect balance of humor, talent, skill, and a little bit of wrong timing when it comes to cracking jokes when in serious situations. He made the series more enjoyable with his quirky one-liners and gave us some major friendship goals. Sharib recently opened up spoke about the success of The Family Man 2 and expressed how grateful he is to the series.

As per a report on Bollywood Hungama, the actor shares-

The first season had set a benchmark for itself and it was an advantage for all of us. Personally, for season one I received a lot of love but this time the reaction has been crazy. This is happening for the first time in my career. I am on cloud nine. Things are out of control. “I didn’t expect it to surpass my expectations and I am feeling very emotional about it. For years I was craving for recognition and I am glad I got it from JK.

When I grew up, I was just 5’4 feet and felt that I couldn’t become a hero so I thought I don’t want to become anyone else. But I wanted to do something in this line so I worked as an assistant director and started writing non-fiction shows for MTV and Channel V.

There have been a lot of ups and downs in my career. I made a decision about taking up acting and faced daily rejections. I was in a very bad state financially and finished all my savings. When the offer for ‘The Family Man’ came I was hoping it would work as the project was big.

I don’t want to put myself into any category that I want to be the main lead or play the most important role. Length of the role doesn’t matter, what I look at it, is how pivotal it is to the story and who is the team on board.

The Family Man season two also features Manoj Bajpayee, Samantha Akkineni, Priyamani, Seema Biswas, Darshan Kumar, Sharad Kelkar, Sunny Hinduja, Shreya Dhanwantary, Shahab Ali, Vedant Sinha, Mahek Thakur, and Ravindra Vijay among others
