ALTBalaji’s high school web drama ‘PuncchBeat’ begins streaming
MUMBAI: Over the top (OTT) platform ALTBalaji has started streaming high school web drama ‘PuncchBeat’ starting today. Viewers can binge-watch 13 episodes of the drama which is based on the students of Rosewood High Academy, one of the most prestigious schools in the country.
Home ground of the elites, the school is popular for nurturing champions in fields like boxing and dancing and its disciplined ways. Famous for its heritage and disciplined ways, the new semester at Rosewood High looks to be one where rebels will be formed, and a lot of rules will be broken.
Teen sensation Priyank Sharma and the charming Harshita Gaur, will play the lead, along with the debutants Siddharth Sharma and Khushi Joshi. The youth drama also sees industry veterans Sameer Soni and Niki Walia playing pivotal roles along with debutants Nikhil Bhambri, Sindhuja Turlapati, Krishna Kaul and Kajol Tyagi.
Filled with romance, drama and a lot of fun, the latest offering has captured extremely riveting emotions and relationships that the particular age group goes through. The story revolves around two protagonists, Rahat (Priyank) and Ranbir (Siddharth), who understand the true meaning of friendship, love, and family through their individual complicated journeys.
The coming of age school drama between the two dives into the mayhem between two brothers, one legitimate and the other one a ‘bastard’ and how they realise that life is all about acceptance and finding one’s identity.
Speaking about the web series, producer and creator Vikas Gupta says, “Excitement on the show has been at an all-time high ever since ALTBalaji announced the series followed by the trailer launch, prom night celebration and the college festival promotions. All of which has been possible due to the immense faith in our web series and I am sure that it will resonate with the younger generation today while giving a nostalgic feeling to the others. Everyone involved in the project has put their heart and soul in this and I am sure the audiences will love it.”
