Pankaj, who performs the gangster Kaleen bhaiya within the show, informed DNA in an interview, “There is a disclaimer that comes before every episode which reads that Mirzapur is a fictional story and does not have any relation to an individual and/or place. I am an actor and I wouldn’t have much to say on this beyond what I have stated.” He added, “Having said that, I would like to add that in ‘Mirzapur’ series, if there are criminals, there’s also a hero by the name Ramakanth Pandit (Rajesh Tailang), who wants to do good for the city.”

In a separate incident, Hindi crime author Surendra Mohan Pathak has claimed that his book, Dhabba, has been misrepresented within the show, and has threatened Amazon Prime with authorized motion, demanding the sequence be eliminated.

The writer has alleged {that a} scene exhibits actor Kulbhushan Kharbanda (as Satyananad Tripathi) studying Dhabba, however the content that he’s proven studying just isn’t the “original text of Dhabba”. The writer added, “On the contrary, what is being read is sheer porno, the undersigned cannot even dream of writing, supposedly to titillate the viewers. But in the process, the whole sequence is shown as an excerpt from my novel Dhabba, which amounts to mischievous misrepresentation.”

Mirzapur also stars Ali Fazal, Divyendu Sharma, Shweta Tripathi Sharma and Rasika Dugal, amongst others. Hindustan Times’ blended evaluate of season two famous, “If Mirzapur was an awkward teenager eager to make an impression in the big boys’ club, Mirzapur season 2 is a middle-aged man who is burdened by everything he has seen. Where Mirzapur waltzed in, Mirzapur 2 treads cautiously. If Mirzapur revelled in sensationalising sex and violence, Mirzapur 2 knows that you are already invested in the dark, dark world of the Amazon Prime series. It is here to give you your fix.”
