Amazon prime’s original, Mirzapur might be the best ever produced season in India. It is about Akhandanand Tripathi who makes millions exporting carpets and became the mafia boss of Mirzapur. His son Munna, an unworthy, power-hungry heir, stops at nothing to continue his father’s legacy.
The show is a huge success even after a few controversies. Recently, Hindi crime fiction writer and popular author Surendra Mohan Pathak has claimed that his book, titled Dhabba, has been “mischievously misrepresented” in the Amazon Prime’s Series.
According to him, a scene shows Kulbhushan Kharbanda (as Satyananad Tripathi) reading Dhabba but the content that he is shown reading is not the “original text of Dhabba”.
Surendra added, “On the contrary, what is being read is sheer porno, the undersigned cannot even dream of writing, supposedly to titillate the viewers. But in the process, the whole sequence is shown as an excerpt from my novel Dhabba, which amounts to mischievous misrepresentation.”
He further said that “The object appears to be an attempt to tarnish my image as a celebrated writer of Hindi crime fiction who is ruling the roost for the last several decades. The sequence defames me as an author and puts me in a bad light as a well-known mystery writer who I am for more than the last five decades.”
Author Surendra Mohan Pathak has threatened legal proceedings against the producers, writers, and the actor in the scene if the sequence is not removed from the Series. The letter is dated October 27.
Anyway, the Season 1 of the Series was hit a won the hearts of the audience and critics as well as for Season 2, the reaction was the same but ended with another curious shot.
Now fans are waiting for the third installment of the much-praised season, following is the link from where you can watch Mirzapur Season for free in HD.
