STRONG POINTS

Panchayat 2 is set to release on the Amazon Prime Video OTT platform next week. The show brings back the original cast, Jitendra Kumar of The Kota Factory fame, Faisal Malik and Raghuvir Yadav. They are to reprise their roles from the first season. Panchayat is one of the most popular shows of 2020 and has seen a huge increase in viewership over the past year. Speaking to IndiaToday.in, the cast of Panchayat 2 opened up on the ongoing Hindi versus Southern language debate. They shared that language is an asset to our country and there should be no debate about it.

LANGUAGE CANNOT BE A BARRIER: JITENDRA

In a country like India, language cannot be a topic of debate, they said when asked to react to the ongoing debate following a Twitter exchange between Ajay Devgn and Kiccha Sudeep. “It’s difficult to have a language in a country like ours where the dialect changes after a few kilometres. Language cannot be a barrier and never has been. In fact, in the industry, when we watch a movie, the language doesn’t matter if you can feel things,” Jitendra said. To this, Raghuvir added, “I regard language as flowing music.”

LANGUAGE CANNOT BE A DEBATE: FAISAL

Faisal also made a valid point, emphasizing that the language debate is unnecessary. He said: “This cannot be a debate. What is supposed to be an asset for a country, you debate.

Apart from that, the actors also discussed the pressure of the new season and their connection with their respective characters. Raghuvir mentioned that he thinks the hero of the story is its simplicity, which is missing in most shows today.

Panchayat 2 will air on May 20.
