Amid the on-going COVID-19 pandemic, Amazon Prime and Netflix have been a boon for viewers. The streaming platforms were recently suggested to consider a budget cut. This meant shows like The Family Man 2 & Mirzapur 2 will see some financial adjustments behind the scenes.

When journalist Rajeev Masand shared the news of both Netflix and Amazon Prime cutting budgets of their shows months ago. His report had further stated that The Family Man creator Raj & DK have even agreed to pay cuts. According to the new budgets, alterations have been made and the duo would be making profits than what they would have originally made.

Although, Raj and DK took to their Twitter yesterday to quash all such rumours. They also clarified that The Family Man 2 starring Manoj Bajpayee in lead has already been shot, so the rumours remain baseless.

“We’ve been getting calls about news that we are facing budget cuts on #TheFamilyMan. We have NOT been asked to cut budgets on either this show or any of our upcoming shows. In fact we have finished the shoot on TFM, so the topic of budget cuts is not even relevant,” tweeted The Family Man makers.

Reports have been heard that Zoya Akhtar’s Made In Heaven 2 and Mirzapur 2 will face similar handling. It is said co-creators Reema Kagti and Zoya will reduce the number of episodes to ensure no compromise in quality. On the other hand, Mirzapur 2 has already been shot but the makers have agreed to a similar deal.

However, there has been no official confirmation made by either Mirzapur or Made In Heaven directors.
