Mirzapur, the popular web series on Amazon Prime, is in a bit of a plan change. The plan was to drop Vikrant Massey’s character Bablu in Season 1and Divyendu Sharma’s character Munna in Season 2. Things were going as per the plot. Massey’s character quietly dropped out of the series in Season 1 and no one missed him in Season 2.
But this is not the case with Divyendu Sharma’s Munna. The character with all his brutality and delusions of immortality has become so popular as to demand a resurrection. That’s right! Fans of the Mirzapur series want Munna back, and from what I hear he will be brought back in Season 3.
How??? One of the main actors from the series told me, “I think Divyendu would be back. I don’t know they will revive his character. But the scriptwriters will find a way. It happens all the time in soaps. Dead characters are brought back to life on popular demand. So why not in Mirzapur?”
Divyendu’s sociopathic act in Mirzapur 2 is breaking the internet. The very talented actor suddenly finds himself in the midst of an unexpected level of popularity. On the large screen, we have seen him play scene-stealing second leads to Akshay Kumar in Toilet Ek Prem Katha and Shahid Kapoor in Batti Gul Meter Chalu. In both cases, he was superior to the films’ official hero. It’s only now after Mirzapur that he has got the recognition he deserves.
