Rasika Dugal on ‘Mirzapur 2’: I didn’t think that Season 2 would really happen
‘Mirzapur’ Season 2 is all set to release on Amazon Prime Video on October 23. It is one of the most awaited web series, that comes with a promise of all the way more intense and emotional drama and double the level of action. Recently, we had a virtual conversation with Shweta Tripathi and Rasika Dugal where they spoke at length about the series, their characters, etc.
Rasika said that she never thought that ‘Mirzapur 2’ will happen while signing for Season 1. She said, “I remember while I was signing for Season 1, they had signed us for Season 2. I thought they were signing us just to safeguard themselves. They did tell me but I didn’t really think of a subsequent season.”
Shweta added, “Series is a lot like life and I want to be surprised. In a film, you know the start and the end but in series, you get the script, understand the character and play it and don’t know what will happen to it after one year. So, when you get the script again, it’s so exciting because then you are reading episode to episode and that is the fun of it.”

She further said, “I did Season 1 for Season 2 because my gut told me to do this project. Series is also like an FD (fixed deposit). Now, I have completed ‘Mirzapur 2’, the makers of ‘The Gone Game’ have already asked for dates. Then, I’m doing one in Hotstar and that too will have Season 2 and 3. So, I was thinking ki if every series have Season 2, 3, I can’t take more projects which is why it is so important you have to be careful at what series you are picking because we can’t back out. So, it’s very important to be choosy because it’s a long time commitment.”
