Amazon Prime Video dropped the trailer and poster of their latest offering Panchayat on Monday, March 30. The web series produced by TVF, stars Jitendra Kumar, Neena Gupta and Raghubir Yadav, among others. The eight-part series will begin streaming on the OTT platform from April 3.
Panchayat takes you through the unusual journey of a city boy Abhishek Tripathi (Jitendra Kumar) who gets posted in a rural village called Phulera.
They captioned the trailer, “Panchayat trailer. Join Abhishek Tripathi on his new job in Phulera! #PanchayatOnPrime this April 3. @tvfqtiyapa @jitendrak1 @chhotathalaiva @neena_gupta.”
Actor Jitendra Kumar, who was recently seen in Shubh Mangal Zyada Saavdhan opposite Ayushmann Khurrana, is excited to be a part of the show and reunite with Neena Gupta.
“Panchayat is the unique and charming story of a young man struggling to adjust to his new life in a remote village. I could not have been more excited to work on Panchayat and particularly the opportunity to work with the brilliant Neena Guptaji once again,” said Kumar, in a statement.
Neena Gupta also enjoyed playing village Pradhan Manju Devi in the series. She said, “Playing the role of Manju Devi, a quirky matriarchal homemaker and official village Pradhan, was a huge amount of fun, especially alongside such a talented cast and crew. Panchayat is a light-hearted, funny series with plenty of heart. I know Prime members are going to fall in love with its unique characters and authentic rural flavour.”
Panchayat is Amazon Prime‘s second collaboration with TVF after Hostel Daze.
