Mirzapur Season 3: Producer Ritesh Sidhwani Shares An Exciting Update About The Show
Both the seasons of Mirzapur have got great responses from the audience, and now everyone awaits the arrival of Mirzapur Season 3. The makers have kept all the details about the third season under wraps but much to the fans’ relief, producer Ritesh Dishwani has finally shared an update about the show.
“Mirzapur Season 3… we are working on the script. We were actually supposed to start shooting this year, but now because of the lockdown and rains (the monsoons, following the lockdown, has apparently made it difficult for the third season to take off, despite the government somewhat relaxing shooting restrictions for the industry), it is happening definitely, but it’ll be happening next year.” Sidhwani told an online news portal.
The Excel Entertainment head also talked about the release of KGF Chapter 2 and revealed, “KGF 2 would be out as soon as possible because the makers are very clear they have to wait for the theatres to open. Plus, it’s more of a pan-India release, with the South market (taken into consideration). We’re only distributing it this side (in North Indian markets), so i’s not our decision mainly, it’s up to the producer, Vijay (Vijay Kiragandur), and Yash and the Director, Prashanth (Prashanth Neel). So, they are going to decide that.”
Ali Fazal made a career-altering choice when he bagged the role of Guddu Bhaiyya on Prime Video’s Mirzapur. The show catapulted the already talented actor’s career, and his character grew to arguably become one of the most popular Indian TV characters of all time. But did you know that there was a chance none of this would have ever happened.
Fazal once sat down for an interview with Filmfare, and revealed that he was instantly drawn to the character of Guddu, but he was initially offered the role of Munna, now played by Divyenndu. “I was stuck on Guddu. I was offered another part initially. I think it was Munna’s part, which Divyenndu has done. At that time, I was so invested in Guddu because I felt like there was so much I could bring to it,” he told Filmfare.
