Maqbool Khan (played by Shaji Chaudhary) has been a silent but deadly figure throughout Mirzapur. He was fiercely loyal to Kaleen Bhaiya (Pankaj Tripathi) throughout the two series. However, the turning point came when Munna (Divyenndu) murdered two of his own family members.

Where is Maqbool in Mirzapur?

Maqbool promptly switched his allegiances from the Kaleen Bhaiya and Munna, deciding to team up with the Tripathis’ enemies Guddu Pandit (Ali Fazal) and Golu Gupta (Shweta Tripathi) after his family were killed.

In the season two finale, Maqbool was initially going to kill Bauji Tripathi (Kulbhushan Kharbanda) but after firing the initial shot, he was stopped by Beena Tripathi (Rasika Dugal).

Beena wished to take revenge on Bauji for blackmailing her in exchange for sex with Maqbool stepping aside to let her finish off the job.

Maqbool took the blame for Beena’s actions given he had already planned to kill Bauji himself.

Beena went along with this pretence as she knew this was how she could take down her husband and Munna, making her baby son the king of Mirzapur when the time was right.

The last Kaleen Bhaiya and Munna knew, Maqbool had gone underground and no one had been able to locate him.

From the looks of it, Maqbool is lying low for now and when he thinks the coast is clear, he is going to rise from his hiding place.

However, there’s a twist in the tale given Kaleen Bhaiya isn’t dead and could take revenge on Maqbool for killing his father.

Maqbool’s storyline was left open and should Amazon Prime Video give the show a renewal, he is likely to make a return.

Many fans have been talking about the character and where his arc could go next.

Reddit user jghjasmine123 wrote: “I’m very interested in seeing how Maqbool comes back in season 3.

“I lowkey want him to join Guddu Bhaiya. Beena was so smart this season- she really used a man’s weakness against them all and I’m kinda impressed.”

While user baap_ko_mat_sikha added: “Maqbool can (probably will?) join Guddu.”

User weirrrrrd posted all their predictions for season three on Reddit including some about Maqbool.

The user said: “Guddu finds Maqbool and convinces him to work for him.”

They also hypothesised: “Maqbool and Kaleen Bhaiya have a face off but both are left alive…many revealations from Maqbool’s side [sic].”

Fan PsychologicalEbb9953 wrote generally about the growth and development of Maqbool, saying: “They always treated Maqbool like s***, and their words after his mom’s death was just disgusting, good for him.”

The user added: “Also I didn’t get how the Tripathis didn’t understand loyal servants and friends are irreplaceable in the crime scene?

“Compounder had to go because he was exposed in season 1 but they betrayed everyone who was loyal to them from Munna’s right hand guy to Maqbool.

“That Kaleen Bhaiya was as soft as butter when it came to Munna, he just let him do what he wants and it came to bite him in the a**.

“Who throws age-old loyal comrades under the bus like that?? Munna was left with no friends… Kaleen bhaiya’s right hand man killed his dad…it’s not like they can just buy new loyal and trustworthy companions.”
