Mirzapur revolves around the rule of mafia dons in Purvanchal, UP, where drugs, guns and lawlessness prevail, and where the government is corrupt and the rivalry between gangs is gritty and bloody. The show received huge acclaim from the critics as well as audiences, especially for its extremely intriguing and engaging plotline and the power-packed performances from Pankaj Tripathi, Ali Fazal, Divyendu Sharma, Shweta Tripathi and Harshita Gaur who nailed the characters with ease and comfort. Mirzapur's follow-up season is believed to be equally gripping and will be full of violence and thrill as it carries a plot of Vikrant Massey's death revenge.
