Mirzapur and Sacred Games have a lot to share in common. Both the shows are amongst the most popular and loved Indian web shows. Both share a common genre of crime thriller with a dash of dark humour and bold language. Also, both shows have witnessed their second season.
Given the quality of work and loyal fan bases, it’s really hard to decide which one is superior over the other. Not just the good things but both web shows grabbed the limelight due to wrong reasons too. While Nawazuddin Siddiqui led second season of SG was panned by many due to ‘not-so-good’ storyline, M2 faced criticism over some political issues.

Meanwhile, before the release, Mirzapur 2 suffered a backlash with #BoycottMirzapur2 trending all over. Shweta Tripathi aka Golu gave the most befitting reply to it.
For the unversed, Ali Fazal had tweeted against the CAA back in January. Owing to the same, a certain section of the users took out their revenge on Mirzapur 2. Koimoi got into an exclusive conversation with the Cargo actress. She was so pumped up and her positive energy totally had us at the first go. But it was her answer to the trolls that won our hearts.
Shweta Tripathi while responding to #BoycottMirzapur2 trolls said, “It doesn’t make a difference to my life. I don’t understand that hashtag. I don’t understand what they are boycotting, why they are boycotting. Nahi dekhna toh mat dekho, dekhna hai toh dekho. Hum kisiko force toh nahi kar sakte na. Humne apna kaam kar dia hai, ab it’s up to the audience. I have full faith in my audience, my followers and I know they are sensible and they will support the right thing.”
