As the most anticipated Indian web series releases tomorrow, here’s all you want to know about the cast of Mirzapur 2 on Amazon Prime Video.
Mirzapur Season 2 story –
The title of King of Mirzapur is up for grabs, and the story continues from where Season 1 left off. It had Kaleen Bhaiya (Pankaj Tripathi), a carpet exporter and local don, and his son Munna, hungry to get his hands on his family’s empire. The latter hits a roadblock with his father’s support for two brothers working for him–Guddu (Ali Fazal) and Bablu Pandit (Vikrant Massey). Sweety (Shriya Pilgaonkar) and Golu (Shweta Tripathi) are sisters, and the former gets married to Guddu. The finale showed Sweety and Bablu being killed off at a wedding hijacked by Munna.
Mirzapur 2 will follow from that, and there’s new contender for the throne, Dadda Tyagi (MM Faruqui, popularly known an Lilliput). And we can surely expect more gunshots and grit from this series that minces no words or scenes. And here’s the cast that will be seen in it.
Cast of Mirzapur 2
The popular actor plays Akhandanand Tripathi aka Kaleen Bhaiya, a carpet exporter and local don, who’s got the town of Mirzapur under his control. In Season 1 he sought revenge on his stooges Guddu and Bablu after realising they manipulated him, and sent his son to kill them. The new season will see him fend off more contenders for his throne.
He plays Munna Tripathi, Kaleen Bhaiya’s son. He loves a power trip and wasn’t pleased when he realised his family’s empire won’t simply fall into his lap. But the end of Season 1 showed him gaining his father’s confidence.
Rasika Dugal continues her role as Beena, Kaleen Bhaiya’s wife. Her sexual dissatisfaction had led her to start a relationship with the house help. And on being found out by her father-in-law, she was gruesomely punished. Mirzapur 2 sees her continue to not only survive, but also wanting to thrive.
He returns as Guddu Pandit. The thick-headed but kind-hearted youth who turns a goon. The new life for him and his brother Bablu meant being involved in local wars, which led to Bablu being killed by Munna at a wedding.
Harshita Shekhar Gaur
She returns as Dimpy Pandit, sister to Guddu and Bablu Pandit. In Season 1 she was troubled by Munna and lost one of her brothers. And in the new season she turned a new leaf, but is not necessarily as principled as before.
He returns as Sharad, son of Kaleen Bhaiya’s rival Ravi Shankar. Shankar was killed by Guddu in Season 1, and Sharad is here to seek revenge and take over Mirzapur.
She returns as Gajgamini aka Golu. Her sister, Sweety who was also Guddu’s wife and pregnant with their child, was killed in the same way as Bablu. The new season sees her shift from her timid nature to being more fierce and violent.
A new cast member, Vijay Varma enters Mirzapur as Bihar ke bade bhaiya, the gun-toting goon from the neighbouring state.
MM Faruqui aka Lilliput
Another new character and cast member, Lilliput appears as Dadda Tyagi. An influential counterpart in Bihar who can threaten Kaleen Bhaiya’s power over Mirzapur.
