Social media handles of Amazon Prime and even Netflix are flooded with queries and memes on “When Mirzapur 2 is coming?” To dilute the quarantine blues, there has been a surge in the requests of Season 2 of famous web series including Mirzapur, Family Man, Made in Heaven, Special Ops
Many of these binge-worthy web series, have completed their shooting and are in the process of post-production formalities. Due to lock down the process of release has slowed down.
There are rumors that one of the important reasons for the delay in launch is that Amazon Prime Video has decided to cut down on the budgets namely for shows Made In Heaven, Mirzapur, and The Family Man. With the shooting complete there are fewer chances of the rumor turning out to be true.
Thankfully, the rumors have been dispelled in an official statement released by Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani’s Excel Entertainment. The agency is taking care of producing the series Mirzapur 2 and Made In Heaven 2 and they’ve stepped in to clarify the rumors.
“There has been a great deal of speculation doing the rounds since the weekend about budget cuts on Amazon Originals produced by Excel Media. We would like to clarify that these assumptions are not true. They have been great partners and we continue to collaborate with them on multiple shows.”
Raj & DK makers of Family Man also put up clarification on budget cuts
“We have been getting calls about the news that we are facing budget cuts on The Family Man (2). We have NOT been asked to cut budgets on either this show or any of our upcoming shows. In fact, we have finished the shoot on TFM, so the topic of budget cuts is not even relevant.”
The latest leaks on Mirzapur 2 suggest a release date sometime in August. Till then let us keep our fingers crossed!
