Apart from Kangana, Anupriya Patel member of Apna Dal Political Party from Uttar Pradesh, also criticized Mirzapur Season 2 by saying that the web series is portraying a bad image of Mirzapur and representing it as the most violent region. She further demanded a ban on the Mirzapur web series, IANS report says.
Earlier in an interview, Divyendu Sharma accepted being scared that viewers might get inspired by his characters. In an Interview with News18 Divyenndu said, "I definitely feel scared. Because the kind of messages that I receive from fans are often very influenced. I was recently shooting in Benaras, two 13 or 14-year-old boys came to me and said, 'Thank you sir, aap logon se bahut inspire hote hain Mirzapur mein.' So, I got a little scared and started wondering whether they were getting inspired by my character or me."
