In an exclusive interview with mid-day, Raj and DK said: "Writing for films is like playing a Test match while that for web, a T20 game. When it comes to scripting a digital show, all the rules change. Every episode must have a beginning, a middle and an end. It has to be extra crisp as each episode must be self-contained."
"We had been waiting three years to make a long-format story. We had a bunch of ideas and were looking for the right platform," the duo further added.
The Family Man, an Amazon Prime Video drama that revolves around a quiet Chembur resident who moonlights as an undercover agent for the Threat Analysis and Surveillance Cell of the National Investigative Agency.
The Family Man, which also features Priyamani and Sharib Hashmi, is based on news events and delves into the current political climate.
"This is the first time we are collaborating with him. He plays a meek middle-class man who is also a spy. He was the best suited to play the common man, lace the character with humour, yet be serious when on the job as an intelligence officer," Raj and DK concluded.
