While Mirzapur 1 was an instant hit and paved the way for other heartland crime dramas to follow, Mirzapur 2 lacked the same appeal. However, it created an interesting groundwork for the next season and left the audience wondering if Kaleen Bhaiya will be back to avenge his son’s death. Two important characters from the show – Bauji (played by Kulbhushan Kharbanda) and Munna (played by Divyendu Sharma) were killed in season 2. It will be exciting to see how the story moves forward from here and what all-new characters are introduced. Watch out!
