Ekta Kapoor has also ventured into the digital space and taken over it; with some interesting shows on her OTT platform, the filmmaker is once again providing wholesome entertainment. And now Ekta will be collaborating with Bigg Boss 11 contestant Vikas Gupta for a web-series called Puncch Beat.

When the announcement of the show was made and the characters were introduced everyone got a feeling that it was inspired by Karan Johar’s Student Of The Year too. Ekta took to her micro-blogging site to clarify it all. Tweeting to Karan Johar, she wrote, “Hey @karanjohar For all d world who thinks I’m spinning off #soty #Punchhbeat is not that ! But since u r the father of this ‘ genre’ right from #kuchkuchhotahai bless this show pls!n wish rosewoodians good luck !! We at #ALTBalaji love uuuuu.

Karan too sweetly obliged to this tweet and replied, “Ektu!!!! More power to you and #Punchbeat looks super cool!!! High school fabulousness!!! Show it to me soon! I want exclusive viewing rights! love you and huge love and luck to the team!”

Conceptualized and created by Vikas Gupta, ‘Puncch Beat’ is a youth drama set in Dehradun. The shoot of the show will commence soon and will be a one to watch out for this 2018. Also starring in the show are Nikhil Bhambri, Amaad Mintoo, Kajol Tyagi, Gargi Nandi, Mrinmai Kolwalkar and Sindhuja. ‘Puncch Beat’ will be streaming this winter on the ALTBalaji app and website.
