A bonus for Mirzapur fans
Remember Bablu and Guddu’s parents from Mirzapur? Yes, the very same jodi is back as a couple on Bandish Bandits. While Rajesh Tailang and Sheeba Chaddha’s characters in the new show are entirely different from Mirzapur, but their ability to hold the attention of the audience shall remain the same.
