Mirzapur 2: Ali Fazal AKA Guddu Questions 'If We Are At The Mercy Of A Trend' After Netizens Call For A Boycott Of The Show
The much-awaited trailer of Mirzapur 2 recently made it to the internet. Starring Vikrant Massey, Ali Fazal, Pankaj Tripathi and others, the trailer of the web-series managed to enthrall one and all. Fans of Kaleen Bhai, Guddu Pandit and others rejoiced as they got to see their favourite characters back on screen. However, there was a section of netizens who called for its boycott. On Twitter, Boycott Mirzapur 2 trend was witnessed post the release of the trailer. Reportedly, this was because of Ali Fazal and Farhan Akhtar's stand of CAA. Now, Ali has reacted to the trend.

To Times Now, the actor was quoted saying, "We have to decide what is the bar we are setting. Are we at the mercy of a trend? No! I don’t look at art in that way. Are we at the mercy of one app that decides who will watch our show and who will not? No, I think this has really gone down. I mean if you are really talking about trends, I never saw any trends related to farmers – there have been protests everywhere across our country. But I wouldn’t say that it’s not an important story, it’s the most important story. Pandemic suddenly has become the last story on everybody’s mind. It’s not trending anymore but it’s still supposed to be the biggest problem that we are facing. I hope the people rise above that.”

He also went on to say that the industry is trying to match the international standards and come up with something nice, and that it does not want to be 'regressed by certain factions of society.'
