The second season of Amazon Prime Video’s cult show, Mirzapur 2 is all set to debut on October 23. For about one and a half years now, fans have been asking about Kaleen Bhaiya and Guddu Bhaiya but now that the release date is near, trolls on social media have made calls to boycott the show.

Why?

Because of actor Ali Fazal’s stand against the government’s controversial Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA).

However, Fazal is made of tough stuff and remains unfazed about calls to boycott the hit show and has stated that he’ll continue to raise his voice, trolls be damned.

“I feel bad when people talk about boycotting the show because so many people are involved in making it. Sometimes, I have to weigh my options and take a step back for the larger good of others; I don’t want them to bear the brunt of my actions. That said, I will not stop raising my voice. I am an artiste in a free world, I am supposed to raise questions. The environment of hate needs to be tackled with peace. We are the country that won its freedom through peace, after all,” Ali Fazal told Mid Day.

The series also stars Pankaj Tripathi, Divyendu Sharma, Vikrant Massey, Shweta Tripathi, Shriya Pilgaonkar, Rasika Dugal, Harshita Gaur, and Kulbhushan Kharbanda in prominent roles.
