Talpade), Shahab Ali (terrorist Sajid), Pawan Chopra (Srikant's boss Kulkarni Sharma), Sharad Kelkar (Suchitra's friend Arvind) and Shreya Dhanwanthary (intern Zoya) will reprise their roles in the sequel.
The makers are yet to announce the release date of The Family Man 2, which went on floors on Thursday.
