Watch: 2021 ‘crush’ Abhay Verma aka Kalyan/Salman from 'The Family Man 2' has a special message for fans

It has been only a couple of days since the second season of "The Family Man" started streaming on Amazon Prime Video, and fans have already been crushing on one of its antagonists.

Abhay Verma, who essayed the role of Kalyan/Salman, a Kashmiri lad influenced by Sajid, a terrorist working with the rebels, is winning hearts offscreen with his charismatic charm.

Verma took to Instagram and shared a video thanking fans and the creators for giving him the opportunity to work in the Manoj Bajpayee-headed series.

Watch the video below.

One user wrote, "Kalyan has my heart NOT Salman!"

"Man, can't stop crushing over you," added another.

One user commented, "Whyyy areee youu soo damn cuteeee."

For those unversed, Abhay first made waves when Akshay Kumar launched the first look of Sanjay Leela Bhansali's film on Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Titled as “Mann Bairagi”, Abhay essayed the role of PM Modi.

Besides that, he is also co-producing the recently announced “Swatantra Veer Savarkar” biopic helmed by Mahesh Manjrekar.

Meanwhile, the season two finale of "The Family Man" drops more than a hint about the potential renewal as a third instalment.

"The Family Man" also stars Samantha Akkineni, Sharib Hashmi, Priyamani, Shreya Dhanwanthary, Sunny Hinduja, Shahab Ali, Ashlesha Thakur and Vedant Sinha.

Created by Raj Nidimoru and Krishna DK, "The Family Man" continued to stay relevant, without the buzz losing its steam.

Last month, Rajya Sabha member and MDMK leader Vaiko wrote a letter to the Information and Broadcasting Minister Prakash Javadekar to stop the broadcast of the series for showing Tamilians in a negative light.

Naam Tamilar Katchi (NTK) Founder Seeman too had demanded a ban on the show for portraying Tamils as vicious and the Liberation Tiger for Tamil Eelam (LTTE) as terrorists.

In a statement last week, Nidimoru and DK had said they respect the sentiments of Tamil people and have come up with "a sensitive, balanced, and riveting story" in the second season of the show.
