The second season of the fan favourite series will see Pankaj Tripathi as Akandha Tripathi, Divyendu Sharma as Munna Tripathi, Ali Fazal as Guddu Pandit, Shweta Tripathi as Gajgamini Gupta aka Golu Gupta, and Rasika Dugal as Beena Tripathi among many others.
The cast members, on the 14th of February, aka the Valentines Day, also held a placard which read, “The Only Date I Want This Valentine’s Is Mirzapur Release Date”.
The cast of the 2nd season of Mirzapur recently completed the dubbing for the web series. Ali Fazal and others shared a picture, which featured the actor with his co-stars Shweta Tripathi, Harshita Gaur and a few others from the production team. Sporting masks, the team was also seen maintaining social distancing.
Ali Fazal, in a statement, said, “We had dubbed a few episodes before the lockdown, so we picked up from where we left off. It was great to be back because this has been an unusually long break. We shot for the show long back, so it took us some time to get back into the groove. Each actor usually comes individually, but the one time we met was when our times clashed.”
He also said, “The studios are on point about their hygiene, so it allows one artiste at a time. So we walked into a pre-sanitised studio. The instructions are given from the other side. Dubbing is a system that was already an isolated job,”.
He also talked about how the fans have been waiting for the season 2 of Mirzapur. He said, “Through the lockdown, fans have been after us. We can feel the eyes on us, and I hope the audience is a little generous.”
He added, “Such great content has come out in the last one year that I will be very proud of being part of Amazon’s legacy,”.
Bankrolled by Farhan Akhtar-Ritesh Sidhwani, Mirzapur season 1 was released on 16th November 2018 on Amazon Prime Video. It projected the world of drugs, guns, lawlessness, and rule of mafia dons in Uttar Pradesh.
