12.20 pm: Shweta Tripathi says she was shaken when she held a gun for the first time
Shweta Tripathi, who plays Golu in the show, said that she was rather uneasy when she handled a gun for the first time. “I still remember the first time I held a gun; the loud shook me completely. I knew right then that I had to train for this. We used real guns and so I worked with stunt director Manohar Verma for the next 10 days at his training arcade near Film City,” she said in a statement.
“The real confidence came on the set. While emoting and blazing guns, making sure it’s all smooth, was a tough one to pull off. Especially for someone like me because I don’t like violence but this is not Shweta but Golu’s journey. I am living Golu’s life. One of my first days of shoot in Mumbai, and I extensively prepared myself emotionally. This is the first time I was doing action and I had started much in advance to train physically. The character has an interesting arc and we see her in a very different light in this season. She couldn’t have looked like Golu from season 1. I would finish shooting and train daily. We don’t see many women holding guns so if I am doing it, I wanted to do it well,” she added.
If Mirzapur 2 trailer has twin themes, it is revenge and greed. Ali Fazal’s Guddu bhaiya and Shweta Tripathi’s Golu want revenge for the deaths of their family, Babloo and Sweety, and Sharad is ready to enter the murky world of crime to avenge the death of his father Rati Shankar. Rasika Dugal’s Beena is seething too. When Mirzapur ended, we saw her looking for a gun to take revenge for the horrific crime done to her. In the middle of it all is Kaleen bhaiya (Pankaj Tripathi) and his heir apparent Munna (Divyenndu Sharma).
Produced by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani under their banner Excel Media & Entertainment, the second season of Mirzapur will premiere on October 23 on Amazon Prime Video.
