With its massive fandom, Mirzapur has given a lot of love and reach to its actors, says Vijay Varma, who remembers watching the first season as a fan and getting instantly intrigued by the show world.

 

The actor said he was more than happy when he was offered the role of twin brothers in the second season. And now that he is returning for the third one, he said it’s a good feeling to be part of the show.

 

“It’s unparalleled (the show’s popularity). I can’t tell you how much this show gives us because jaha par kisine kuch nahi dekha hai usne Mirzapur dekha hai (people who haven’t seen anything have seen the show). So, that’s the kind of love and reach…. It’s like you’re not worried about what the critics will say. It’s a good feeling,” Varma told the media.

 

The crime drama introduced Varma, who has since built an enviable body of work in both movies and on OTT with projects such as Darlings, She and Dahaad, as twin brothers Bharat Tyagi and Shatrughan Tyagi.

 

“I watched the first season of Mirzapur as an audience. I was hooked. The way they ended the first season was so disturbing and gripping. It left you thinking, ‘I want to watch this story, I want to know what happens next’.

 

“Then I saw the fandom erupt and I was like, ‘Have we actually become this country that has fandom for shows? It’s a one-of-its-kind series, I think Sacred Games, and Mirzapur, are the pioneers…. So, when I was asked to do the second season, I was more than glad,” Varma, 38, said.

 

The show, which borrows its name and fictional setting from the Uttar Pradesh city of Mirzapur, is premiering on July 5 on Prime Video.

 

He praised Singh for creating a universe that remains unchanged on the surface whether it is the lighting, the set, props or the outfits that his character gets to wear in the show, making it easier to slip into the character.

 

The actor is happy that his recent projects gave him the opportunity to expand his horizons.

 

Produced by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani’s Excel Entertainment, Mirzapur 3 will stream on Prime Video from Friday.
