Speaking about his new 'role', an excited Purab spoke exclusively to Bollywood Hungama saying, "I am really excited about the show because of the young energy that the makers want to bring in the show. That's exactly what is driving me and making me excited about this show. To be involved in a show of this stature is an amazing feeling. People are really surprised that I am doing this show."
