Here’s the Official Trailer Of Mirzapur-
The trailer description says, “Mirzapur is a story set in the heartland of India. A world of drugs, guns and lawlessness with heart pounding action, violence at an operatic scale, gangsters with sharp minds, dry
humour, and fast hands; where loyalties change in a flash, a story like never seen before.”
“We are excited to collaborate again with Amazon Prime Video for the next Prime Original Series, Mirzapur,” Akhtar said in a prepared statement. “The success of Inside Edge reaffirms our faith in digital streaming in India, proving that these are indeed exciting times for storytellers, artists, writers and filmmakers. Mirzapur is a story not meant for the faint-hearted and it will make people think about the show for days after watching it.”
“We are thrilled to collaborate with Amazon Prime Video to present a genre-defining, bold and powerful story like Mirzapur,” Sidhwani said. “A show of this caliber with high production value and scale takes it to the next level of cinematic experience. We are taking a story set in the heartland of India to a global audience & are excited to see how viewers respond to it.”
“Mirzapur is the perfect storm. The creative freedom Amazon Prime Video allows, Excel’s adroit production experience, [and] an ensemble cast that takes an already fantastic script and owns it,” Anshuman said. “This is a fine time for filmmakers and I’m looking forward to new collaborations.”
A few months ago, Sidwani also shared the banner teaser on Twitter with a caption that reads ‘Welcome to Mirzapur’ in Hindi.
