A day after makers released Pankaj Tripathi starrer Mirzapur 2, Mirzapur MP Anupriya Patel expressed her dismay over the district being portrayed as a maligned and violent region.
She took to Twitter addressing Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath stating, “Mirzapur is under the leadership of UP CM Yogi Adityanath ji. It is the centre of harmony. Through websites called Mirzapur, it is being maligned as a violent region. Through this series, ethnic disharmony is also being spread.”
“As an MP of Mirzapur district, my demand is that it should be investigated and the action should be taken against it,” she added.
माननीय प्रधानमंत्री @narendramodi जी एवं माननीय मुख्यमंत्री @myogiadityanath जी के नेतृत्व में मिर्ज़ापुर विकासरत है।यह समरसता का केंद्र है। मिर्ज़ापुर नामक Webseries के ज़रिए इसे हिंसक इलाक़ा बताकर बदनाम किया जा रहा है।इस सीरीज़ के माध्यम से जातीय वैमनस्य भी फैलाया जा रहा है।1/2

This season does not stay confined to the violent world of Mirzapur, it takes people to the power corridors where a nexus between politics and criminals prevails.
Season one finished with the death of two important characters Bablu Pandit (Vikrant Massey) and Sweety Gupta (Shriya Pilgaonkar) and the new season is all about revenge.
Meanwhile, Guddu Pandit (Ali Fazal) and Golu (Shweta) will be seen locking horns with Kaleen Bhaiya (Pankaj Tripathi) and his son Munna Tripathi (Divyendu Sharma).
Set in Uttar Pradesh, the web series also features Rasika Duggal, Vijay Verma, Rajesh Tailang, Sheeba Chadha, Priyanshu Painyuli and Isha Talwar.
Produced by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani under their banner Excel Media & Entertainment, the second season of Mirzapur will premiere on October 23 on Amazon Prime Video.
