Mirzapur is a big G-Spot for me- Guns and Ghoonghat, says actor Harshita Gaur

Talking about coincidences, Actor Harshita Gaur who will be seen in the upcoming season of Mirzapur on Amazon Prime actually has roots from this city in Uttar Pradesh. Harshita’s maternal grandfather hailed from Deoria which is close to Mirzapur and he grew up there along with his siblings.

 Speaking about her childhood memories, Harshita said, “Just talking about Mirzapur makes me go all nostalgic as I have spent quite an amount of my childhood there. My naanaji and his younger brother were settled in Mirzapur. My naana eventually settled in Amritsar but we used to visit our cousins in Mirzapur during summer holidays as a kid and I have actually seed guns and pistols in that home. I was in fifth or sixth grade when I would visit the city and women used to be in ghoonghat till their waists. Only a few years back I got to know that my naani was actually fighting a case for long due to some illegal land grabbing and in fact our family and nani was advised not to go to Mirzapur or Wasliganj because of the threat of being killed on sight. It still sends shivers down my spine when I think about it.”

 She further added , “When I was offered the series, it took me back to some  childhood memories in a way my family has suffered and seen that part within the family…like getting threats from an extended family. Even when I heard the narration and read the script, I had my childhood memories play out like a show reel as it wasn’t new to me, as  years back if I was probably spotted in that city I would have been killed on sight. So somewhere yes, I resonated with the fact that things like these do happen.”

Harshita Gaur will be seen reprising the role of Dimpi Pandit in the series starring Ali Fazal, Vikrant Massey, Pankaj Tripathi, Shweta Tripathi, Divyendu Sharma and Rasika Dugal. Mirzapur season 2 will be streaming on Amazon Prime Video from Friday, October 23rd, 2020.

Anjum Sharma to woo audience in Mirzapur 2

Amazon Prime Video series Mirzapur featuring Pankaj Tripathi, Ali Fazal and Divyendu Sharma received a humongous response from the audience for its gripping storyline, impactful characters and dialogues, creating huge anticipation and curiosity amongst them.

The series that ended on an interesting note also introduced the character of Sharad Shukla, essayed by actor Anjum Sharma, who is set to enter the world of crime and take on the Mafias including Kaleen Bhaiya and Guddu portrayed by Pankaj Tripathi and Ali Fazal respectively.

Anjum’s character has generated high interest in the audience, making them hungry to know more about his game of action in the second series and how he stands against them.

A source informs, “From here on, it’s going to be rivalry and drama between these interesting and powerful characters. From being a peace-loving guy to being someone who is set to take on the biggest mafias of his state, Sharad Shukla is set to change the dynamics of the world of crime in season 2.”

“The pre-production work has already begun and is expected to roll soon. Things are moving at a very exhilarating speed considering the huge anticipation,” the source adds.

Talking about Sharad’s character, director Gurmmeet Singh informs, “Sharad’s casting was slightly tricky because we knew that season 2 would see his character emerge and become more powerful in the series. So we were very clear that we needed someone who could easily carry his own weight and is a seasoned actor. We convinced Anjum that even though his part wasn’t long enough in the first series, it will carry forward in the next season. We are lucky that it worked out both ways and we had Anjum to play “Sharad”.

Having been actively involved in Theatre for over a Decade, Anjum has been part of the Oscar-winning Slumdog Millionaire and Farhan Akhtar’s Wazir. The talented actor has also been part of a popular digital film for Hotstar- Baaki Itihaas, based on the writing of renowned writer Baadal Sarkar.

This young, promising actor didn’t just woo the audience with his effortlessly nuanced performance but a lot of revered critics reviewed only to shower him with appreciation for his part in this crime thriller.

For instance, The Indian Express opined, “Vikrant Massey plays the innocent docile boy and we are hoping that his character will find a direction in the upcoming episodes.” In the meanwhile, Times Now News rated him saying, “Vikrant Massey is of the first rate.”

Firstpost reviewed him as a peaceful distraction from animosity, increasing death counts and gloomy circumstances saying, “Massey provides a relief from the constant gore, and lends the story a fleeting balance.”

Popular site Scroll.in affirms, “Vikrant Massey is terrific in his role, managing to earn some sympathy even though his character is never up to any good.” In.com finally avers on his diction quoting, “Vikrant Massey delivers his lines wonderfully.”

Vikrant Massey has an impressive mix of content-driven plus mainstream projects to his name like Mirzapur, Lipstick Under My Burkha, A Death in the Gunj, Dil Dhadkne Do and Lootera for which his power packed and impactful performances were highly appreciated.
