After the release of Mirzapur 2, now Mirzapur MP Anupriya Patel has expressed her dismay over the district being portrayed as a violent region. She also reached out to Prime Minister Narendra Modi and called out the makers, demanding action against them.
Anupriya Patel also addressed Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath and wrote on Twitter, "Mirzapur is under the leadership of UP CM Yogi Adityanath ji. It is the centre of harmony. Through websites called Mirzapur, it is being maligned as a violent region. Through this series, ethnic disharmony is also being spread. As an MP of Mirzapur district, my demand is that it should be investigated and action should be taken against it."

The second season talks about bigger stakes and introduces the world of drugs, illegal gun trade, and other practices in the stride to gain power in politics and revenge. The show depicts Mirzapur as a nexus of bad politics where criminals prevail andstars its own set of violent and powerful families like the Tripathis who run various illegal businesses.
