Will Mirzapur Be Banned?

The ‘Mirzapur’ series is not new to troubles, it has been mired in controversies since its release last year.

Mirzapur’s MP and Apna Dal national president, Anupriya Patel had also demanded an inquiry against it. Patel also demanded a ban on the web series, saying it was spreading ethnic disharmony.

The MP had also alleged that the series, which was recently released on Amazon Prime, was maligning the image of Mirzapur by portraying it as a “violent” region.

She had then told the reporters that under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, Mirzapur “is a ‘centre of harmony’ and the matter must be investigated and strict action taken against those responsible for sullying its image”.

She had tweeted and tagged Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, demanding an inquiry against the series.

Mirzapur is a violent tale of feuds in families, politics and elections. It features Shweta Tripathi Sharma, Pankaj Tripathi Ali Fazal and Divyendu Sharma in the primary roles.
