Puneet made a comeback in TV shows after a long time. When asked what made him choose this role and why he chose a mythological show, he said, ''It is not a mythological show but a factual history. It was God's grace that this show chose me. I was not doing a full-fledged work, only episodics for various shows. I was keeping myself busy at the personal front by being with family. I got a call from Swastik Productions. The casting team believes in me as an actor. I went for an audition for some other character. But, Sidharth Kumar Tewary wanted to cast me for Narada's role. I was a bit sceptical. He said the team will audition me after two days. I researched about it and found it really challenging. I was in a dilemma if I should take this challenge or not. As an actor, this character is challenging, but now I am happy doing it. 

When asked if screen space matters to him as an actor, who has been a part of the industry for a very long time, he said, ''Definitely! This has happened with me in many of my shows and episodes. But, I am not greedy about my space on-screen because I am a part of the team.''

He added, ''I know I am playing Devrishi Narada in the show and his scenes keep coming in the episodes. I was told that it is an important character in the show. I always get the desired screen space. And now, I am looking forward to a scene in which I am going to perform with Nandi. I am quite excited about it.''

Well said, Puneet!
