When asked about Pankaj’s role closest to his heart, he told IANS, “All the characters are very good.” People really gave him love, but Kalin Bhaiya gave me popularity as an actor, people know me by the name of Kaalin Bhaiya. This work is done by the character. This has made me really popular.
Asked if he was giving a safe answer, Pankaj refused. He said, this is not a safe answer. This was the first time that my own hoddings were installed in India during Season 1 (Mizarpur). Before this no cinema has put my hoddings and I am a good actor. People liked me, but cinema never gave me a place in posters.
He believes that it was Mirzapur, which helped him achieve the success he now enjoys. He said, the character of Kaalin Bhaiya and Mizarpur has given me this place. Therefore, this is the correct answer.
Season one ends with the death of two important characters, Bablu Pandit (Vikrant Massey) and Sweety Gupta (Shriya Pilgaonkar), and the upcoming season is about revenge. Guddu Pandit (Ali Fazal) and Golu (Shweta Tripathi) will be seen arguing with Kaalin Bhaiya and his son Munna Tripathi (Divyendu Sharma).
The second season of the story based on Uttar Pradesh region also stars Rasika Duggal, Vijay Verma, Rajesh Telang, Sheeba Chadha, Priyanshu Penduli and Isha Talwar.
Mizarpur 2 will be available on Amazon Prime Video from 23 October.
