Rasika Dugal begins shooting for Mirzapur 3
Mirzapur also stars Ali Fazal, Shweta Tripathi Sharma and Vijay Varma
Actor Rasika Dugal on Wednesday said she has commenced shooting for season three of her Amazon series Mirzapur. The 37-year-old actor said she is excited to be reuniting with her co-stars for the upcoming third season.
“I’m looking forward to reuniting with the cast and I’m delighted that Gurmeet (Singh) is directing us in this season too. It’s reassuring to have a director who knows the characters and the world of the story in and out. Divyenndu and Kul Ji ( Kulbhushan Kharbanda) will be missed,” Dugal said in a statement.
The crime drama series, backed by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani’s production house Excel Entertainment, revolves around gang wars and illegal weapon cartels in the backyard of Uttar Pradesh and Bihar.
In Mirzapur, seasoned actor Pankaj Tripathi stars as the ruthless mafia don and fan favourite Kaleen Bhaiyaa, Dugal as his wife Beena Tripathi, Divvyenndu as his son Munna and Ali Fazal as a gangster Guddu Pandit.
The series turned out to be one of the successful Indian Originals since its debut on Prime Video in 2018, followed by the sophomore season in 2020.
Mirzapur also stars Shweta Tripathi Sharma, Kulbhushan Kharbanda, Vijay Varma and Isha Talwar, among others.
In addition to Mirzapur 3, Dugal upcoming projects include Netflix show Delhi Crime Season 2, supernatural horror show Adhura, sports drama series Spike, black-comedy thriller film Lord Curzon Ki Haveli and another feature Fairy Folk.
