It is currently streaming on Amazon Prime Video, India's most popular entertainment destination. Its award in the category of 'Best Original Programme by a Streamer/OTT' further cements its status as a digital trailblazer.

"At Prime Video, we are constantly working towards offering our viewers compelling content across genres, categories, languages and formats, that entertains, inspires and provokes," said Aparna Purohit, Head of India Originals, Amazon Prime Video India.

As we complete 5 years in India, our win at the prestigious Asian Academy Creative Awards is validation that our relentless efforts to find and give a platform to the best stories, storytellers and talent, is working. I would especially like to mention actor, Brahma Mishra, who essayed the role of Lalit in the series and met with a tragic demise this week. This award is a tribute to him and the hard work put in by him and his co-actors and technicians in making the series what it is today."

Puneet Krishna, Creator, on receiving the award for Mirzapur Season 2 said, "It is a huge moment for every technician and talent from Mirzapur, a series that has become a household name. The show's authenticity and relatability make it a rather unique and interesting series, one that engages the audience at a deeper level. A heartfelt thanks to every actor and every person working extremely hard behind the camera to make Mirzapur a memorable viewing experience for the audiences. Thank you, Asian Academy Creative Awards, for recognizing our efforts.
