The plot of The Family Man 2 witnesses madness erupting after Seema Biswas' character PM Basu takes an adamant stand of wanting to organize bilateral talks in the capital city of Tamil Nadu, Chennai.

Addressing the much-discussed question in a recent interview with Bollywood Hungama, Seema told the portal that the makers mentioned no names to her and never told her if her character in The Family Man 2 was inspired by a real-life personality.

Elaborating further on the same, the Bandit Queen star said she prepped for her role according to the brief given to her and to understands what should be the body language of her character. She also revealed that there was no reference to PM Basu's character either mentally or physically. The film and theatre actor concluded by stating that just like her character in the Manoj Bajpayee-starrer, she is a Bengali in real life too, so that made her job in the web series much easier. 

Meanwhile, The Family Man Season 2 ended with a hint at the third season. However, it's unclear whether Seema Biswas will reprise her role in season 3. Talking about the same, the Half Girlfriend actor said she hasn't been told anything about the same by the makers.
