Excel Entertainment earlier gave us the incredibly well made Inside Edge. Even as there’s talk of a sequel to that series, they have finally announced the teaser trailer of Mirzapur, their crime, guts and glory web series that will be based around small town crime.
Gurmeet Singh, who had earlier worked on Inside Edge directs the web series, which has been created by Karan Anshuman and Puneet Krishna. Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani are the executive producers for this web series.
Actors Ali Fazal and Shweta Tripathi will be part of the webseries. According to reports, Ali Fazl will play a fierce gangster and Shweta will be playing a girl from Mirzapur. Shweta had earlier revealed the she will play Golu Gupta, whose world lies in books and she is straightforward in putting her point across.
The trailer itself is quite creative and has an earthy, desi touch to it that should give the audiences of the kind of story Excel wants to tell.
Mirzapur will be one of the very few homebrew concepts that will hit the streaming screens. Earlier, Excel Entertainment gave Inside Edge and then came Phantom Films with Sacred Games. Apart from that, ALTBalaji, Hungama and even Zee5 has come up with web series that are based in India, mostly small-town stories that have a satisfying mix of crime, drama and everything else that makes for a good story.
