October 7, 2020: As the trailer of season 2 of popular web series Mirzapur was released on Tuesday, a section of people on Twitter started calling for its boycott even before the series is launched.



The reason apparently is one of the lead actors in the web series, Ali Fazal, and Mirzapur co-producer Farhan Akhtar.



Soon after 'Mirzapur 2' trailer released, Ali Fazal's old tweets supporting the anti-CAA protests in December resurfaced on Twitter.



Netizens are apparently angry about Ali Fazal’s previous posts, which he tweeted in December 2019, about the nation-wide protests against CAA and NRC. The netizens have taken most offense to a particular tweet where the actor had apparently used his character Guddu’s dialogue from Mirzapur. It read, “Suru majboori mein kiye thhey, ab maja aa raha hai!” Whereas, Farhan Akhtar is being called out for taking part in anti-CAA protests.



The season 2 of 'Mirzapur' will stream on Amazon Prime Video from October 23. The thriller features Pankaj Tripathi, Ali Fazal, Divyenndu, Shweta Tripathi Sharma, Rasika Dugal in primary roles.
