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.

Ali Fazal excited for the double release of his two projects Mirzapur 2 and Death on the Nile In October on the same day

Isn’t India’s darling Ali Fazal on a roll lately? After the massive announcement of Death of the Nile last week, the much-awaited Mirzapur second season is ready for release. With the show’s final edit underway, it’s being said that the show will be delivered to the platform by the end of this month. It’s indeed a double celebration for the actors’ fans who’ve waited a long time for these projects and what makes this better is that both his projects arrive together on October 23 exhibiting his sheer range.

Ali says, “I am happy that the world will get to see these two very different cinematic experiences of mine in the same year. And given the fact that  Death on The Nile will be one of the first movies to release worldwide in theatres, I feel it will be a fresh change for audiences across the board. If only there was a panel sitting somewhere watching my work, they’d see the range I am aiming for. Both the releases have their audiences and are both two different ends of the spectrum. The opportunities presented in front of me have opened up this range. And for an actor, it is nectar. Right now, I am just hoping that Death On The Nile gets a theatrical release in India.”

The first season of Mirzapur ended on a beautiful cliffhanger and the second one promises an unseen kind of Bhaukaal with Ali’s Guddu Bhaiyya a central figure in the scheme of things. The audience is simply ready for the joyride. Bring it on!

Ali Fazal reunites with the team Mirzapur 2 as they begin final work on the new season

Looks like Amazon Prime is all set to release their tentpole show -Mirzapur; whose second season was due to hit the platform this year. After the cast posted a series of photos on their social media announcing the restart of their dubbing sessions, recently leading man Ali Fazal posted a picture of the cast together. Working remotely all through the lockdown, this is the first time the cast reunited in full strength for the dub session. Besides key members of the cast including Shweta Tripathi Sharma, the actors were also joined by people from the production team. The actors ensured that they practiced social distancing all through.

Speaking about it, Ali said, “We had dubbed a few episodes before the lockdown so we picked up mid-way. It was great to be back because this has been an unusually long break. We shot for the show long back so it took us some time getting back into the groove. Each actor usually comes individually but the one time we met was when our times clashed. The studios are on point about their hygiene so it allows one artist at a time. So we walked into a pre-sanitized studio. The instructions are given on the other side. Dubbing is a system that was already an isolated job.”

One of the platform’s most loved shows, the actor says that the pressure is now building. “We were always the underdogs and there was always immense love from the audience. But now the show is considerably delayed because of the circumstances posed by the pandemic. Through the lockdown, fans have been after us. We can feel the eyes on us and I hope the audience is a little generous. Such great content has come out in the last year that I will be very proud of being part of Amazon’s legacy.”

Though the fear of the pandemic looms large on most especially after two A-list stars of the industry-tested positive with COVID. But Fazal says there’s no scope for fear. “I am rather happy about going to work. We cannot fall prey to fear or that’s the end of us as we know it. Nothing can come out of fear. We need to be smart, healthy, and simply cautious.”

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.
