Fans who have been waiting to get updates about ‘Mirzapur 3’ with bated breath can now finally heave a sigh of relief as the trailer of the upcoming season is finally out. In the action-packed trailer, Guddu Pandit (played by Ali Fazal) could be seen trying his best to establish his hold over Purvanchal. It seems like he can go to any extent to get the throne. Actors like Shweta Tripathi Sharma, Rasika Dugal and Vijay Varma also left a mark with their presence in the trailer.

At the end of the trailer, actor Pankaj Tripathi emerges from the shadows and promises to reclaim the empire. Rajesh Tailang, Sheeba Chadha, Meghna Malik, and Manu Rishi Chadha are also part of the show. Created by Excel Media and Entertainment, the fan-favourite crime thriller is directed by Gurmmeet Singh and Anand Iyer.

On what fans can expect from the show, Director and Executive producer Gurmmeet Singh shared, “The first two seasons of Mirzapur proved to be game changers for the crime thriller genre in the streaming space in India. With Mirzapur 3, we strive to build on the momentum and take the narrative to a whole new level, exploring new facets and dimensions of each character’s life replete with new plot twists. We are incredibly excited for fans to witness the showdown for Mirzapur’s throne unfold in the new season.”

The first season of the crime drama premiered in 2018 and season second came in 2020.

Ahead of the release of the third season in July, actor Ali Fazal took a stroll down memory lane and recalled the challenges he faced while reprising his role of Guddu Pandit. “I don’t know what season 3 holds but I know I have justified a graph for this particular boy who has the essence of it all who holds his innocence despite so much corruption around him. And a young boy almost at his impressionable age getting turned into all kinds of demons and things along the way because of the circumstances in the society, and he becomes what he becomes. So yes it has taken a lot out of me, I will always cherish it,” he shared.

As the much-awaited third season of ‘Mirzapur’ approaches its release date, excitement among fans is reaching a fever pitch.

The series, starring Ali Fazal and Vijay Varma, has garnered a dedicated following for its intense storyline and complex characters. In an exclusive interview, Vijay shared insights into what fans can expect in the upcoming season. Speaking about his character Vijay revealed, “I had nothing to do with the thrown, or with Mirzapur. I was running a good business in Siwan, stealing and selling cars. All this happened because of a woman. Now, I don’t want the thrown; I want to break it.”

When asked about the absence of Munna’s character this season, Vijay said, “Munna is a very popular character in the show. I think that’s just the format of the show. In the first season, they killed off a popular character. In the next season, they killed off an even more popular character. That’s the unique feature and strength of the series.”

Now, with the excitement building for the upcoming release of ‘Mirzapur’ Season 3, actor Anjumm Shharma, known for his role as Sharad Shukla in the series, recently shared insights into his journey and career choices, including a pivotal audition for another prominent show. Anjumm Shharma revealed that earlier in his career, he had auditioned for a significant role in the cricket-based series ‘Inside Edge,’ produced by Excel Entertainment and streamed on Amazon Prime Video.

Reflecting on those days, Shharma expressed a mix of disappointment and gratitude, stating, “I was sad when Inside Edge didn’t work out because it was a script I wanted to be a part of.”

However, fate took an unexpected turn when Shharma was later approached for ‘Mirzapur,’ another highly acclaimed series under the same collaborative team. Initially cast in a smaller role in the first season, he was assured by the makers of ‘Mirzapur’ that his character had the potential to grow significantly if the show resonated with the audience.
