Divyenndu set a strong foothold in the OTT space with his portrayal of Munna Bhaiya in the Mirzapur series. The tenth episode of season 2 showed Munna Bhaiya presuming death. His not so typical grey character was loved by one and all, and Munna Bhaiya walked straight into the hearts of fans by pulling multiple layers off his persona. Divyenndu talks about the amount of love he has received from his fans so much so that they have the most fascinating theories about his character in the show.
"When Munna Bhaiya came my way, it felt like a perfect role to take up as it had multiple layers to his personality. The character's 'devil-may-care' attitude was one part that blew up the minds of the audiences. The season 2 climax has made fans curious to know if he'll be back in the third season," the actor said.
He adds, "It's absolutely gratifying and fascinating to see them come up with their own theories, like I remember one had said that Munna Bhaiya isn't dead as he might have the condition called, Dextrocardia where the heart is pointed more towards the right and he was shot on the left so that was done on purpose.. and you never know, it could be (laughs)."
Divyendu further adds, "But season 2 was a big turning point in Munna's life because it really showed a more humane and softer side of his especially in regards to his wife. And overall, his respect towards women came to light as well in this season, Munna Bhaiya certainly is one of the most special villains with a heroic onscreen presence."
This grey character is clearly one of the most loved characters. Divyendu's portrayal of Munna Bhaiya has etched it into everyone's memories forever. From his guy next door role in Pyaar Ka Punchnama to the small town goon in Mirzapur, Divyenndu has won the audience over with his versatility. The actor is all set to be seen in YRF's debut OTT show, The Railway Men and is rumoured to have signed up multiple projects in the last year. He is also rumoured to be featuring in a project with Imtiaz Ali among other things.
