On October 23, the Mirzapur season 2 is coming. However, recently a trend to Boycott the show arose after actor Ali Fazal took part in anti-CAA protests.
Ali Fazal acted in Mirzapur’s first season as Guddu Pandit. The actor is however unfazed by the Boycott calls and said that he will not stop from raising his voice as an artist in the free world.
Mirzapur story is based in the Purvanchal region of Uttar Pradesh. The season 2 will continue to involve drugs, politics and guns.
Ali spoke to Mid Day and said that he was saddened that people were calling for boycotting the show since many people are connected with the show.
“I feel bad when people talk about boycotting the show because so many people are involved in making it. Sometimes, I have to weigh my options and take a step back for the larger good of others; I don’t want them to bear the brunt of my actions. That said, I will not stop raising my voice. I am an artiste in a free world.” He added that he is supposed to raise questions and that the environment needs to be handle with peace. After all, the country won its freedom through peace, said Ali.
#BoycottMirzapur trended as soon as the trailer of Mirzapur Season 2 arrived. Ali told Times Now Digital that it has to be decided that what bar we are setting. He added that he does not look art in this way and that one app should not decide who will watch their show and who will not.
He added that there have been many protests going on by farmers but no single hashtags have been in trend regarding farmers. He further said that the pandemic has not yet over but it is not trending anymore. However, the pandemic is still the biggest problem.
