Kaleen Bhaiyaa is back! Yes, you read that right.
The Amazon original crime-thriller Mirzapur that narrates the story of the infamous druglord Akhandanand Tripathi, nicknamed as Kaleen Bhaiyaa from Uttar Pradesh’s titular town of the same name had hooked viewers since the time it dropped on the streaming platform back in 2018.
With a stellar cast of Pankaj Tripathi, Divyendu Sharma, Ali Fazal, Vikrant Massey, Shweta Tripathi, Shriya Pilgaonkar, Rasika Dugal, Harshita Gaur and Kulbhushan Kharbanda, the show managed to grab a legion of fans with its no-holds-barred portrayal of corrupt governance and the ‘gundaraj’ of mafia dons. Now, the streaming site has dropped the long-awaited trailer for Season 2 of the show and fans can’t control their excitement.

Season one of the show was a massive hit and ended in a bloody showdown, with only Pankaj Tripathi, Munna Tripathi (Divyenndu), Guddu (Ali Fazal) and Golu (Shweta Tripathi) remaining alive from the main cast after a fierce battle.
The series is adding Vijay Verma, Amit Sial and Priyanshu Painyuli. Going by the trailer, the series doesn’t look to disappoint those with a penchant for watching crime shows. The trailer was launched by the star cast of the show in a virtual press conference, which was attended by all cast members.
Mirzapur Season 2 is all set to premiere on Amazon Prime Video on October 23, 2020. It is produced by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani under their banner Excel Media & Entertainment.
