Panchayat has a certain kind of innocence. That’s why it touches people’s hearts. - Neena Gupta

Brilliant actress Neena Gupta was recently seen in the season 2 of Amazon Prime Video's comedy drama 'Panchayat' which is getting massive love from the audience. The show revolves around Jitendra Kumar's character Abhishek Tripathi, a village panchayat secratary, who despises his job and it also stars veteran actor Raghubir Yadav.

Just like the first season, Neena plays the role of village head, Manju Devi who goes through a new character arc this season. Talking about why people love 'Panchayat' so much, the actress told PTI, "What I’ve realised is that Panchayat has a certain kind of innocence. That’s why it touches people’s hearts."

She added, "It’s a very well written season. There are some new characters also. It was fun to shoot again. We shot in the same village (in Madhya Pradesh) and stayed in the same hotel." Talking about her own character in the show, Neena said, "Manju Devi’s growth as a character will be slow because the kind of woman she is, she won’t suddenly change. She is a very simple woman and doesn’t want much from life. So the change has to come softly and slowly. And this is the flavour of Panchayat. There are no abrupt shifts. The script flows very smoothly."
