Although the writers have researched a lot about these two brothers and used their real-life stories so that they can put their stories into their imagination, Ali Fazal (Guddu Bhaiya) told to Express.co.uk in an interview.
Real gangster Guddu wasn’t a bodybuilder or a macho man
As shown in the series, maybe he did not have the GYM facilities back then, who knows? But the fact is that the current of the image of Guddu bhaiya was inspired by a real-bodybuilder from Mirzapur and writers were overwhelmed by the effort and commitment made by these people to win the local competition.
That’s just not it, the writers and their team met with the real gangster to put some real thing in their own TV series story. Interesting right?
