As raw as it gets, of drugs, guns and more, upcoming 'Mirzapur' has a real life connect with Purvanchal where the series was extensively shot. Pankaj Tripathi aka Kaleen Bhaiya and Ali Fazal aka Guddu Pandit, two of the most crucial characters of Mirzapur, have their roots tracing back to Purvanchal. Both the actors hail from the region.
Mirzapur, a lawless land filled with moments of heart-pounding action where the only rules are laid by none other than Kaleen Bhaiya aka Pankaj Tripathi.
The recently released trailer showcases the journey of two brothers lured by the idea of power only to get consumed by it.
Mirzapur is an amped-up portrayal of India’s heartland and youth. It's a world replete with drugs, guns, and lawlessness, where caste, power, egos and tempers intersect and violence is the only way of life.
With heart-pounding action, violence at an operatic scale, gangsters with sharp minds and dry humour, Mirzapur is a hinterland story that is as raw as it gets, the makers say.
The thrilling and gripping crime drama stars an ensemble cast of Pankaj Tripathi, Ali Fazal, Vikrant Massey, Divyendu Sharma, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Shweta Tripathi, Shriya Pilgaonkar, Rasika Dugal, Harshita Gaur, and Amit Sial promising a powerhouse of talent in the same frame.
Created by Karan Anshuman and Puneet Krishna, produced by Ritesh Sidhwani and Farhan Akhtar's Excel Entertainment, Amazon Prime Video's Mirzapur is directed by Gurmeet Singh.
