What does Panchayat’s cast and its director have to say

Director Deepak Kumar Mishra says, “Panchayat is a testament to the beauty of simplicity and the richness of rural life. It's a series that celebrates the resilience, humor, and humanity found in the everyday struggles of village folk, and I'm incredibly proud to be a part of bringing their stories to the screen," he added.

Neena Gupta, who essays the role of village head Manju Devi, says, “Panchayat has been one of the most enjoyable projects I've ever worked on and I am delighted to be a part of Season 3. Doing the latest season felt like homecoming to me. The series is amazing – even though the characters are from rural areas, their beliefs, struggles, and how they deal with them are so relatable, no matter where you're from!”

Jitendra Kumar, who plays the protagonist Abhishek, says, “Being part of this show has been an absolute honor for me, it’s because of Panchayat that today I am a household name. You know, they say it takes a village to raise a child, and in my case, I truly believe it took the whole village of Phulera to help me grow as a performer! I’ve been extremely lucky to have actors such as Neena ji, Raghubir ji, Faisal and Chandan as my colleagues, which has helped me immensely to grow as an actor.”
