Boycott Mirzapur S2: Twitter expresses anger due to Ali Fazal, Farhan Akhtar

The trailer of Mirzapur season 2 came out yesterday and it has definitely become quite the talk. However, given the outrage on social media for just about everything, it seems to be in trouble. Twitterverse has taken to trend boycott Mirzapur S2 as they seem to be unhappy about previous tweets from Ali Fazal and Farhan Akhtar.

As known, Ali plays the role of Guddu in the show while Farhan is the co-producer. The outrage is a result of the tweets from Ali regarding the NRC CAA protests. Farhan, on the other hand, was reportedly a part of protests, and Twitter is therefore not happy about the same. It took only a couple of hours for the trend to take over on social media.

None the less, those who are fans of the show continue to be excited about the series given all the wait earlier. While boycott Mirzapur S2 continues to take on Twitter, there are also people who have things to say otherwise.

Check out the trailer here:

Twitter seems to have its own reason to trend boycott Mirzapur S2 and it is about standing with the country. While this is an attempt at making those who stood up against the NRC Bill earlier look anti-nationals, a section strongly disagrees as well. However, there are a range of tweets doing the rounds, have a look at some of them here:

As the boycott Mirzapur S2 trend takes on Twitter, this does raise another question. What does the future of entertainment in the country look like? With the constant divide of sorts that seems to exist between what we see and what we want. However, while there are always two sides to everything, for some, it has never been a problem.

A movie like Sadak 2, or other films that are now on their way, even Gunjan Saxena, have all been subjected to a boycott on Twitter. However, as one says, the show must go on, and so it will. What will be worth seeing now, is what the fate of this series going to be with the online outrage it has received.

There is no such thing as enough of reading and writing, or so I believe. While everything else might cause saturation, words always come to the rescue. A writer for a major part of my life, I take things as they come, but not without a pen and paper.
