After two very successful seasons, Mirzapur is returning for another season. The latest season was announced recently and fans have been waiting for updates about the show. Pankaj Tripathi, who essays the iconic role of Akhandanand Kaleen Tripathi aka Kaleen Bhaiya in the show, has shared some exciting news for the fans. 

The actor who is promoting his upcoming release, Sherdil: The Pilibhit Saga, told Bollywood Hungama that he is prepping to shoot for the third season. He added that the filming will start next week. Pankaj Tripathi also assured that the third season of Mirzapur will be more interesting and he will start reading the script soon too. 

“I know that the fan excitement for the series is humongous. I will do the costume trial tomorrow and within a week we will begin shooting. I will also hear the entire script now, I am truly excited to be Kaleen Bhaiya again”, he had told PTI in a recent interview.

“This is a lot of fun to do, the show and the role of Kaleen Bhaiya. I am actually a powerless man in real life, so I experience power only through Kaleen Bhaiya. The hunger for power, which is there in everyone, gets satiated through Mirzapur.”

Sherdil: The Pilibhit Saga is slated to release in cinemas on June 24th. Directed by Srijit Mukherji, the film also features Sayani Gupta and Neeraj Kabi.
