Is Mirzapur based on a true story?

No, Mirzapur is not based on a true story. However, the series is inspired by true people and events.

Mirzapur tells the story of two brothers Guddu (played by Ali Fazal) and Bablu (Vikrant Massey), who get caught up in a world of drugs, guns and violence after they befriend Munna (Divyendu Sharma), the son of Mafia boss Akhandanand Tripathi (Pankaj Tripathi).

It is set in Mirzapur, Uttar Pradesh which is portrayed as being run by mafia dons and full of criminal activity.

However, in reality, Uttar Pradesh has a low crime rate per capita and has the largest police force in the world. Because of this, The National Crime Records Bureau states that Uttar Pradesh is the third safest state to live in India.
