ALTBalaji launches its latest original Puncch Beat on Valentine’s Day. The high school saga stars Priyank Sharma, Harshita Gaur, Siddharth Sharma and Khushi Joshi in lead roles. The 14-episode series has been produced by Vikas Gupta.

At the launch of Puncch Beat, Priyank Sharma sat down for an exclusive chat with indianexpress.com. Talking about the show, the actor confessed of being a ‘nikamma’ (good for nothing) in his high school. Known for his stint in reality shows like Roadies, Splitsvilla and Bigg Boss 11, Priyank also opened up about the many controversies in his life.

Here are some excerpts from the conversation.

Why didn’t you pick a solo project for your debut?

My character Rahat is a dream come true role for me so there was no second thought about it. I had so many senior actors to share screen space with and learn from. Also, it was almost like a family working together. I never felt like questioning my decision as it was all very perfect.
