Panchayat 2 is one of the most eagerly awaited web series in recent memory after Panchayat season 1 became one of the most watched and loved sleeper hits in the Indian OTT world. Neither Amazon Prime nor the makers must have had any idea of the kind of winner they had on their hands prior to the release of the show back in 2020. So, it comes as no surprise that many were waiting with bated breath for tomorrow, Friday, 20th May, the release date of Panchayat 2. So, imagine everyone’s puzzlement when Panchayat season 2 dropped 2 days early on Prime Video, with reactions ranging from pleasant surprise for those who discovered it to utter dismay for those who didn’t.
Panchayat 2 early release on Amazon Prime Video real reason
So, why did the makers and Amazon Prime head honchos decide on dropping Panchayat 2 so early? Well, the real reason is they had no choice as word got out that the Jitendra Kumar, Raghubir Yadav and Neena Gupta starrer was already leaked online on piracy sites like Telegram, Movierulz and others. So, in order to combat that, Panchayat season 2 was released quickly, since truth be told, word gets around faster of something being leaked online rather than it legally getting released, such are the asinine times we live in, and waiting any longer would mean Prime Video missing out on valuable viewership and screen-time.
