The matter reaches to Kaleen Bhaiya, who furiously summons both Guddu and Bablu.
Guddu and Bablu nervously rush to see Kaleen Bhaiya but are left surprised when Kaleen Bhaiya offers them a job impressed with their audacity of challenging him. Soon after, both the brothers are inducted into the gang and business of guns. The business takes an exponential growth, and so does the violence in Mirzapur and near-by areas.
