Mirzapur: Pankaj Tripathi-Ali Fazal Already On To Season 3, Budget And Principal Actors’ Fee Doubled- EXCLUSIVE
It can now be told. Yes, there will be  a third season  of Mirzapur,  the  Amazon Prime  series that has broken all records  among the web series of India by becoming the most-watched Indian  digital series  of all 

times. While Mirzapur 2 is all set to premiere on Amazon Prime On October 23, fans are all excited to watch Kaleen Bhaiya and the fight to become the king of Mirzapur between Guddu Pandit and Munna Bhaiya.

Pankaj Tripathi who plays the patriarch in a family of political assassins says he has never seen such craze for any of his serials or films before this.

The actor says, “The curiosity and excitement for the sequel to Mirzapur was beyond anything I’ve seen. Anywhere that I went I was asked about ‘Kaleen Bhaiyya’  the character  I play in  Mirzapur2. I haven’t encountered such  curiosity for any  of my other characters.” The craze for the other characters in  Mirzapur is also beyond anything we’ve seen on the  OTT platform. Sources from Amazon Prime reveal that the budget for Mirzapur  2 was more than twice what it was for the first reason.


“Every principal actor has been paid nearly double of what he got in the first season. Characters like Kaleen Bhaiya, Guddu and Munna(played by  Pankaj Tripathi, Ali Fazal and  Divyendu Tripathi) are more popular than large-screen heroes in high-budget action films,” comments a source.

While the first season of Mirzapur was budgeted a meagre Rupees  12  crores,  the budget for Mirzapur  2 is nearly 60 crores, and Season  3’s budget will be hiked by at least 30 percent.
