Durgesh Kumar on Panchayat 3's success

Talking about the feedback he has gotten from the Panchayat fans, Durgesh told Zoom, "Mujhe bohot achchha laga. Hamare ek actor hai Atul Srivastava. He congratulated me. When log bolte hai, woh dekho Banrakas jarh hai, toh achchha lagta hai. Log ate hai, photo khichate hai l, batchit karta hai, achchha lagta hai. Ek handicap ladka tha, he came and told me to thank you for entertaining us. Woh mujhe kaafi achchha laga."
(Translation: I felt very good. One of our actors, Atul Srivastava, congratulated me. When people say, "Look, Banrakas is coming," it feels good. People come, take photos, and chat with me; it feels nice. There was a handicapped boy who came and told me, "Thank you for entertaining us." That made me feel really good.)
There was a scene in Panchayat where Banrakas was seen saying, "Kheliye meeting meeting, kijiye meeting meeting, alua meeting." It went viral on social media with lots of reels. Revealing the back story behind the scene, Durgesh said, "Ye wala scene ke pehle mera ek lamba speech tha. 2 3 takes lage. Tab mujhe laga ki isko kuch finishing point dete hai. Maine fir alua joda. Bohot log enjoy karrh the woh line ko. Has rahe the."
("Kheliye meeting meeting, kijiye meeting meeting, alua meeting." It went viral on social media, and lots of reels were made. Revealing the backstory behind the scene, Durgesh said, "Before this scene, I had a long speech. It took 2–3 minutes. Then I thought to give it a finishing point. So, I added 'alua'. Many people enjoyed that line. They were laughing.")
"Hum ekdum family ke tarah rehte the. Gaon walo ke tarah rehte the. Main bhi gaon se hoon. Maine halke se loud scenes kiye hai kyunki gaon mein log itna hi loud hote hai. Maine usko pakad ke ye character banaya, jo writer sir, director sir sabko pasand aya," added the actor.
("We lived like a family. We lived like villagers. I am also from a village. I did slightly loud scenes because people in villages are that loud. I grabbed that essence and created this character, which the writer, director, and everyone liked.")
Spilling beans on the off-screen equation with the co-stars in Panchayat, he said, "Jeetendra sir, bohot sincere actor hai. Raghuvir sir and Neena ma'am toh senior hai. Bohot enjoy karte hai. Mera sabse achchha bond Vinod aur Madhav se hai. Humlog Versova mein ek hi taraf rehte hai. Humlog Panchayat ke pehle se ekdusre ko jante hai, and ek dusre ke kaam ke prasangsa karte hai."
(Jeetendra sir is a very sincere actor. Raghuvir Sir and Neena Ma'am are senior actors. They enjoy it a lot. My best bond is with Vinod and Madhav. We all live on the same side of Versova. We knew each other even before 'Panchayat' and appreciate each other's work.")
Durgesh went through depression twice. Revealing details about the same, Durgesh added, "Main kaam karrha tha. But jab aap kaam karrh hote aisa nahi hote ki aap sirf kaam karrh hote. Aisa hota hai ki aap chahte ho ki aapke life mein koi ladki, ek dost ho. Bohot cheezein simultaneously chalte rehta hai. Mujhe bhi ek ladki se thoda prem hua. Uss ladki ne mana kardiya. Maine bohot cigerette pina shuru kar diya tha. Tabhi maine pehlibar cigerette piya. Usi time nicotine body mein jane ke karan main depression mein chala gaya. Ye NSD 3rd year ka baat hai. Uhan par teachers, mind-blowing hai, bright-minded hai. Woh log mujhe bole ki tujhe doctor dikhana chahiye. Toh doctor dikhaya and unhone bola ki aap depression mein ho. Main 6 din ke liye ghar gaya, medicine liya, and revive kar gaya."
(I was working. But when you are working, it's not like you are only working. You want someone in your life—a friend or a girl. Many things go on simultaneously. I also fell in love with a girl. She rejected me. I started smoking a lot. That was the first time I smoked a cigarette. Due to nicotine entering my body, I went into depression. This was in the third year of NSD. The teachers there are mind-blowing and bright-minded. They told me I should see a doctor. So, I saw a doctor, and he said I was in depression. I went home for six days, took medicine, and revived.
He added, "Dusra bar tab aya jab mere Pitaji ko diabetes ke karan brain hammeroage hua and uss samay main dukhi hogaya. Par woh survive kar gaye. Usi time main Panchayat 2 ka shooting karrh tha, Laapataa Ladies shoot kari hai, Dedh Bigha Zameen shoot kari hai. Main medication leraha tha toh main balanced tha aur mujhe pata tha ki mujhe achchhe se deliver karna hai. In cheezon pe main dhyan rakh raha tha. "
(The second time was when my father had a brain hemorrhage due to diabetes, and I became very sad. But he survived. At that time, I was shooting for Panchayat 2, Laapataa Ladies, and Dedh Bigha Zameen. I was taking medication, so I was balanced and knew I had to deliver well. I was mindful of these things.)
