Why did Divyenndu say no to Mirzapur 3?

Divyenndu opened up about the challenges he faced while playing such a dark character. He shared, "When I was in character, it was affecting my personality a lot. We shouldn’t over-romanticise going too deep into a character, because it is not easy. At times, it used to get really dark for me. I felt suffocated. 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.”
