Panchayat Season 2 has become a talk of the town ever since its release last month. The eight-episodic comic series features Jitendra Kumar, Raghubir Yadav, Chandon Roy, Faisal Malik and Neena Gupta in the leading roles.
While we are already a fan of the script, screenplay and the acting of each of the actors, we also can’t get over the bond between the four men working at the Panchayat office. Pradhan Ji, Upp Pradhan, Sachiv Ji and the office assistant share a bond that we all aspire to have at our office. And their bond has now been carried forward off-screen as well.
The four actors are now good friends in real life too. During an exclusive chat with us, actor Faisal Malik, who plays the role of Prahlad (Upp-Pradhan) talked about his bond with his co-stars.
Faisal admitted that he is closest to Raghubir Yadav (who plays Pradhan in Panchayat 2). He said, “I liked working with Raghubir Yadav Ji. He never looks at the monitor after giving a scene. And he also told me to not look at it. And now, I also don’t look at the monitor. Raghu bhai is amazing. When he is on set, it feels like he is the youngest of all. All of us have a lot of fun when he is around. We all love him because of the kind of energy he carries with himself. I interact the most with him and I love his character.”
Talking about Jitendra Kumar aka Sachiv Ji, he said, “I have always been a fan of Jitu. I used to stop him to tell him how much I love his work. And now I finally got a chance to work with him. He is a close friend now. He is an amazing actor. I believe that Jitu has a phenomenal future. He’ll do amazing films in future. He deserved appreciation.”
Faisal Malik also expressed his gratefulness towards TVF for providing him a life-changing role. He said, “Firstly, I am a big fan of TVF. Secondly, the journey of TVF began in front of me and I have seen them grow. Arunabh Kumar’s name will be mentioned in media education in future because he works with honesty. The audience of TVF is very genuine and they have built that audience with a lot of hard work. TVF has changed my life. I am grateful to Deepak, Chandan and Arunabh.”
Panchayat is created by TVF and streams on Amazon Prime Video.
