But it seems like the second season of Mirzapur is controversy's favourite child. After netizens trended #BoycottMirzapur, the new hashtag that we came across is #BanOnMirzapur 2.

Why Ban Mirzapur 2?

A day after the release of Mirzapur 2, Member of Parliament from Mirzapur constituency Anupriya Patel has demanded action against the web series alleging that the show is maligning the image of the Uttar Pradesh city by portraying it as a 'violent' region.

Taking to her verified Instagram handle, Patel said that through the web series 'Mirzapur', on the one hand, while the makers are portraying it as a violent city, on the other, the show is also spreading ethnic disharmony.

On the contrary, she stated in her set of Twitter posts written in Hindi that Mirzapur, under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, is a developing city. Anupriya Patel added the city is the 'centre of harmony' and stated that the matter must be investigated and strict action taken against those responsible.
