‘No Munna Bhaiya, No Mirzapur’: Netizens unhappy on Divyenndu Sharma’s absence in the 3rd season

Divyenndu Sharma stated that being in the character had a significant impact on his personality and made him feel ‘suffocated.’

Actor Divyenndu Sharma, widely known for his role as Munna Bhaiya in Mirzapur, recently announced that he will not be returning for the web series’ highly anticipated third season. His choice to leave the show saddened his supporters.

In one of his interviews, Divyenndu stated that being in character had a significant impact on his personality. The actor revealed why he decided not to be a part of the series, stating that he felt suffocated and that it became too ‘dark’ for him.


He reportedly said, “We shouldn’t over-romanticise going too deep into a character, because it is not easy. It’s so tricky that you don’t even realise that you are in that zone. It’s only when you come out of it do you realise how dark it was.”

However, shortly after his interview leaked on social media, his disappointed and grieving supporters declared that Mirzapur will be incomplete without Divyenndu.

“There’s no Munna bhaiya in Mirzapur season 3’s heartbreaking moment,” a fan commented on X (previously Twitter). Another person wrote: “Mujje munna bhaiya se milna hai yaar, mirzapur 3 main hoon na ap agar ap nhin huwe na phir maine Nhin dekhni, munna bhaiya chaiye mujje, love you bhai.”

“Mirzapur season 3 me Munna bhiyaa nhii haii, wtf ab maja kaise aayega yr,” said another irritated user.
