Actors Ali Fazal and Shweta Tripathi have begun shooting for the web series "Mirzapur" in Varanasi.
It's a gangster drama that has a rural setting with northern India as its background.
"It has been a busy year for me and I am pretty happy about it. I am geared up and excited to start shooting with this talented team of Mirzapur," Ali said in a statement.
The series has been produced by Excel Entertainment.
Shweta expressed her excitement on working with Ali on the project.
"I adore Ali. I've known him for a few years now. We met at Prithvi (Theatre) and even did a play together. I was absolutely thrilled when I got to know that he is going to be a part of Mirzapur. I couldn't be happier with the casting of our series," said Shweta.
All episodes of "Mirzapur", which is being made for Amazon Prime Video, will be shot in Uttar Pradesh.
