Mirzapur: Amazon Prime release season two trailer
Amazon Prime Video’s hit series Mirzapur made a welcome comeback last year after fans were left waiting for two years. The new series did not disappoint with audiences quickly working through the new episodes after season two dropped in one go on the streaming platform. Mirzapur became the biggest series in India on Amazon Prime Video and unsurprisingly the show got the green light for a third run.
Will Isha Talwar return as Munna’s wife Madhuri Yadav?
WARNING: This article contains major spoilers from Mirzapur season 2
Season two certainly left the story on a devastating note with the status quo upended and the fate of several characters hanging in the balance.
The biggest revelation was the death of Munna Tripathi (played by Divyenndu), who was shot dead by Guddu Pandit (Ali Fazal).
Guddu and Golu Gupta (Shweta Tripathi Sharma) finally got their revenge on the gangster’s son following the trail of devastation and death he left in the first series.
The pair also thought they’d finished off Mirzapur’s kingpin Kaleen Bhaiya (Pankaj Tripathi) but little did they know the mobster was still clinging to life after he was abducted by Sharad Shukla (Anjum Sharma).

Munna’s death and Kaleen Bhaiya’s kidnapping are going to send shockwaves through Mirzapur with some serious consequences likely to play out in the third series.
Among these will be how Munna’s wife Madhuri Yadav (Isha Talwar) deals with his death given this is the second time she’s been widowed.
Madhuri and Munna had a falling out at the end of the series where she called on him to rule Purvanchal with her but instead he said he wanted Mirzapur.
She also attracted scorn from her father-in-law who gave a misogynist rant about women not being fit for power.
Although Munna quickly defended his wife and slapped down Kaleen Bhaiya’s outdated views, he told Madhuri to return to Purvanchal while he stayed in Mirzapur.
Despite things ending badly between the newly married couple, Madhuri was now a member of the Tripathi family through marriage and as such may have a stake in ruling Mirzapur.
She may also seek revenge against Guddu for killing her husband and season three could see the new king of Mirzapur under attacked from Madhuri for his part in Munna’s death.
Madhuri was one of the breakout stars of season two and it looks like she could have a great role to play in the third outing now she is wielding significant power.

Then again, Madhuri and Munna’s marriage was one of convenience and he laid out pretty early his true intentions of using her for power.
With Munna now dead, perhaps Madhuri could also seek to rule the roost in Mirzapur but using legitimate means?
Speaking to IBT, Talwar revealed when she auditioned for the part of Madhuri in Mirzapur she wasn’t really sure what she was in for with the character.
Nonetheless she wanted to be part of the show because it was such a huge programme and previously worked with many of the cast.
She told the publication: “I didn’t know what I was signing up for to be very honest.
“The moment I heard Mirzapur, even if they would have given me a five minutes role I would have done it.
“The kind of love people have for Mirzapur, I would have done it anyway.
“When I met my director and writer I felt these guys seem like a great bunch of people…it became so popular, and the fact that it is backed by Excel Entertainment, it had value to the project.”
