If you loved Sacred Games on Netflix, you must surely be loving Mirzapur, Amazon Prime's original Hindi series. A political crime-drama potboiler, the series depicts two brothers' quest for power, is set in the rustic background of Uttar Pradesh. The show has been receiving rave reviews from audiences, especially with it's crisp, dark humour, snappy one-liners and relatable dialogues.
In fact, such has been the overnight popularity of the show that it now seems that the viewers' hype around it may even equal that created by sacred Games upon its release earlier in the year. While the show is trending on social media, one of the sure shot ways to gauge a show's popularity these days is whether it is trending as a meme. And much like Sacred Games memes which were all the rage a few months ago, Mirzapur memes are now taking the internet by storm, signalling the Mirzapur has been accepted by audiences as the rightful replacement.
Check out some of the best Mirzapur memes currently doing the rounds on Twitter:
