Amazon Prime’s original Mirzapur got an overwhelming response from the audiences and the show is now gearing up for its second season.
The second season was supposed to air in 2020 however, it got delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The lead cast has been dubbing for the show individually and they recently got together for a dubbing session in Mumbai. The actors wore masks and practiced social distancing as they reunited.
Speaking about it, Ali Fazal said, “We had dubbed a few episodes before the lockdown so we picked up mid-way. It was great to be back because this has been an unusually long break. We shot for the show long back so it took us some time getting back into the groove. Each actor usually comes individually but the one time we met was when our times clashed. The studios are on point about their hygiene so it allows one artist at a time. So we walked into a pre-sanitised studio. The instructions are given from the other side. Dubbing is a system that was already an isolated job.”
Talking about the pressure of delivering another hit season, Fazal said, “We were always the underdogs and there was always immense love from the audience. But now the show is considerably delayed because of the circumstances posed by the pandemic. Through the lockdown, fans have been after us. We can feel the eyes on us and I hope the audience is a little generous. Such great content has come out in the last one year that I will be very proud of being part of Amazon’s legacy.”
“I am rather happy going to work. We cannot fall prey to fear or that’s the end of us as we know it. Nothing can come out of fear. We need to be smart, healthy and simply cautious,” he concluded.
