Speaking about the same, Ali Fazal said, "O suppose by default the format, it has become a very integral part of my life , and performances. Because it is the one place where people get to track the entire gram, so there is season 1, season 2 and season 3. I don't know what season 3 holds but I know I have justified a graph for this particular boy who has the essence of it all, who holds its innocence despite so much corruption around him. And a young boy almost at his impressionable age getting turned into all kinds of demons and things along the way because of the circumstances in the society, and he becomes what he becomes. So yes it has taken a lot out of me, I will always cherish it.

He continued, “It is the world that I don't belong to, it is the character I don't belong to, but I have tried to make sense of it, with the analytical approach I have to study it, the way they write, the way they think, the way he interacts with the people in those areas and of course kahaniyan, kahaniyan hain (stories are stories), they can be told in any perspective. In this case you see it from Guddu's perspective. The rest of it has been the icing on the cake, there is the body builder, there is a manickness, the madness that you see but these are the effects of core traumas that this person has been through.”

He also added, “To be able to have so much compassion that I wanted to achieve through playing this part, and also to the audiences to be able to play something like this requires someone who can see what a person in that situation can go through or maybe any other situation. It can be endless situations in a story. I think that was my biggest challenge, to be able to put yourself away from it and look at it and without judging it just observe. So, I have tried to do that I really hope it brings some heart out on the big screen or any screen where it will be watched”.

Mirzapur 3 is promises to bring forth another riveting season of power, revenge, and the dark underbelly of crime. Directed by Gurmeet Singh and Anand Iyer and produced by Excel Entertainment, it is set to stream soon on Amazon Prime Video from July 5 onwards. The series will see the return of beloved characters played by Pankaj Tripathi, Shweta Tripathi Sharma, Rasika Dugal, Vijay Varma, Harshita Gaur, Anjum Sharma, Priyanshu Painyuli, Isha Talwar, among others.
