Both 'Fukrey' and 'Fukrey Returns' had audiences in splits and emerged as hits at the box office in 2013 and 2017, respectively.
Actor Ali Fazal, who is playing one of the leads in Amazon Prime original series Mirzapur, has confirmed that second season of the web series is in the pipeline. In a good news for the audience who appreciated the show, Mirzapur Season 2 will hit the screens early next year.
The Fukrey actor, who is popular for playing boy next door characters and enjoys a lover boy image on screen, surely surprised people with his performance as a dreaded gangster in Mirzapur. Ali shed all his inhibitions to play the character of angry young man Guddu Pandit who shoots people at the drop of a hat. The first season had a loose ending, which left wide scope for season 2.
Speaking on Mirzapur Season 2, Ali Fazal said, “About season 2, 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 here and abroad, and yeah, then after that we will begin.”
Mirzapur first season is a nine-episode series produced under the banner of Excel Entertainment and stars Pankaj Tripathi, Vikrant Massey, Diveyndu Sharma, Rasika Dugal, Shriya Pilgaonkar, and Shweta Tripathi, apart from Ali Fazal, in pivotal roles.
