Piracy spoils the game of “Khichdi” 2? The Maker expressed his pain over the film’s failure: “Everyone downloaded it and watched it at home.”

The 2002 comedy show Khichdi was well received by the audience. Characters like Hansa, Babuji, Prafulla, Khichdi and Jayshree remained in hearts for decades. In 2010, the film “Khichdi” of this franchise was released, which was also well received by the audience. But when Khichdi 2: Mission Panthukistan hit theaters in 2023, the audience turned away and the film flopped at the box office.

The film’s director, maker and actor Jamnadas Majethia has expressed his sadness over the flop of Khichdi 2. He has narrated how his film failed at the box office due to piracy. Speaking to India Today, Majethia said, “People didn’t want to wait to go to the theater to watch the film.” Everyone downloaded it and watched it from the comfort of their homes.


The Khichdi 2 director further said, “I was surprised at how many messages I received from everyone.” But by then it was too late. To be honest, I was really disappointed because we had worked very hard, especially on the songs and important scenes. He said a product like khichdi never fails. His film also did good business. But unfortunately, they couldn’t achieve the expected financials.

Majethia further said he feels people like khichdi on the small screen. In such a situation, it probably won’t fit on the big screen. Furthermore, the director said that he doesn’t want to release Khichdi 2 along with Tiger 3 on Diwali. He said, “Sunday is the biggest day for films, but that day was the World Cup final and India were playing.” It was a risk and unfortunately it didn’t pay off.
