Both these series are slated to stream on the same day – 23rd of October.
Mirzapur has been the flagship show for its platform and viewers have waited with bated breath for news of its second season. Dugal will be seen reprising her role as the fiery Beena Tripathi. In Mira Nair’s directorial, she will be seen essaying the role of Savita Mehra Kapoor, whose marriage kicks in a turn of events among four families.

“I loved re-visiting Beena Tripathi for Mirzapur and loved discovering Savita Mehra for A Suitable Boy—both in a matter of few months. Mirzapur already has a very loyal following and I am sure A Suitable Boy will charm many too. I look forward to the audiences responding to both the shows and to Beena and Savita too. Here’s to the abundance, variety, and quality of work on streaming platforms.”
Mirzapur centres around Akhandanand Tripathi, the mafia king of Mirzapur, and his son Munna, an unworthy, power-hungry heir who stops at nothing to inherit his father’s legacy.
Set in 1951 India, A Suitable Boy is about a literature student Lata Mehra, who is torn between familial duty and love, while her suitors try to win her heart.
