The second season of the show was slated to be released in April but it got delayed due to the ongoing corona virus pandemic as the actors couldn’t get the dubbing done.
But amidst all the love and appreciation that this series has received, the trolls and haters on Twitter have used this as an opportunity to spread #BoycottMirzapur2 targeting the lead of the show Ali Faizal. He is being targeted for his tweets supporting the Anti-CAA protests and the haters are demanding to boycott the show now. This activity is similar to the hashtag that was trended when the trailer for Sadak 2 was released which received massive backlash for promoting nepotism in the Bollywood following the suicide of Sushant Singh Rajput.
The trending of hashtags supposedly has become a new norm now but will that really convert into low viewership of the movies and shows that is yet to be seen.
