The second season of Mirzapur 2 is just around the corner and Ali Fazal has now spoken about the social media trend to boycott the hit Amazon series. 

Speaking about the troll Ali, who plays the role of Govind "Guddu" Pandit in the series, said that art can’t be held captive to social media trends.

In an interview with Times Now Digital, Ali was quoted saying, "We have to decide what is the bar we are setting. Are we at the mercy of a trend? No! I don’t look at art in that way. Are we at the mercy of one app that decides who will watch our show and who will not? No, I think this has really gone down. I mean if you are really talking about trends, I never saw any trends related to farmers – there have been protests everywhere across our country. But I wouldn’t say that it’s not an important story, it’s the most important story. Pandemic suddenly has become the last story on everybody’s mind. It’s not trending anymore but it’s still supposed to be the biggest problem that we are facing. I hope the people rise above that."

The reason for the trend, it appears, is Ali and series maker Farhan Akhtar's opposition to the controversial Citizenship Amendment Act (CAA) and National Register of Citizens (NRC).

To this, Ali said, "We are trying to create something nice. We are trying to also level with international work that is out there on those very platforms. We don’t want to be regressed by certain factions of society."
