Ali Fazal will be returning as gun-toting gangster Guddu Pandit for the sophomore season of Mirzapur and the actor says people will get to see a different side of his character.

The first season of the Amazon Prime Video series premiered on the streaming platform on November 16, 2018 and the cast has completed the shoot for the second run.

“I’m done with the shooting of Mirzapur season two. It is currently in the editing stage. I hope the show will come out early next year, in April I guess. That’s the plan.

“There is a lot more in the new season. The stakes are much higher. My character is very different. It was a bit frustrating playing it this time. Only four or five times you will see the glimpse of the what I played in season one,” Fazal told PTI.
