Produced by Excel Entertainment, Mirzapur has proved that it is no less than Netflix's Sacred Games. With a compelling story and plenty of blood-bath, the makers managed to secure a place in the audience's mind.
Soon after the release of the series, fans began waiting for its second season as the first season only had 9 episodes about the origin of Guddu Pandit (Ali Fazal) and Bablu Pandit (Vikrant Massey) as gangsters of Mirzapur. Well, the story isn't completed in its first season which has sparked anticipation among its viewers.
Mirzapur actor Ali Fazal has confirmed that its second season will be released in the coming year i.e., 2019. In a statement, Fazal said: “Hopefully early next year. We are hoping to bring you back to the world of Mirzapur. So early next year we would, but before season 2, I have some film commitments to finish both her and abroad and yeah, then after that we will begin.”
Fukrey actor Fazal who plays the role of a goon of Mirzapur, Guddu Pandit, will also be a part of the second season of the show. However, Vikrant Massey's character, Bablu Pandit dies in the first season, so it is hard to say whether he will be bac for the second season or not.
Talking about his role, Fazal said earlier in an interview: “It has been quite a journey. It must have been challenging for all of us, maybe except Pankaj Tripathi (laughs). I know it would be a surprise for many to see me in this role. And I don’t mind saying, but I wouldn’t have cast me for this keeping in mind my roles in the past. But all thanks to Amazon and Excel for getting me on board. I am hungry for such challenges. And personally, I Iove working with accents. Mirzapur has a very relatability factor and as actors, we have also tried to keep it as real as possible. While many would assume it to be just a gangster series, it has no larger than life scenes and is very close to real life.”
On a related note, Mirzapur is a web-series which is being premiered only at Amazon Prime Video. Starring Pankaj Tripathi, Divyendu Sharma, Ali Fazal and Vikrant Massey, Mirzapur has been created by Karan Anshuman and Puneet Krishna.
