Ranveer Singh To Make His TV Debut with Quiz Show ‘The Big Picture’

Ranveer Singh, the Hindi actor, is all set to make his television debut with Colors TV’s quiz show The Big Picture, the channel announced on Twitter, adding that the show will air on Saturday at 6:45 pm.


It will also stream on Voot and Jio.

Talking about his small screen debut, Singh, in a statement, said, “In my journey as an artiste, the urge to experiment and explore has been constant. Indian cinema has undeniably given me everything – it’s been a platform for me to excel and showcase my skills as an actor, and I have been fortunate to get immense love from the people of India. Now, I look to connect with them in an extremely unique and engaging way through my television debut with Colors’ The Big Picture. The proposition of introducing India to a ‘now’ generation quiz show sealed the deal for me.”

In the show, with the help of three lifelines, the contestants will be required to correctly answer 12 visual-based questions to win millions of rupees. Viewers watching from home will also be able to play and win prizes.

The show, which has previously garnered immense popularity internationally, is being brought to India under the banner of Banijay Asia and ITV Studios Global Entertainment BV.

Previously, A-listers such as Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan, among others, have also hosted game shows on TV.


On the film front, Singh is currently awaiting the release of his sports biopic 83, which is based on the life of Indian cricketer Kapil Dev. The film, directed by Kabir Khan, also stars Deepika Padukone, Pankaj Tripathi, Boman Irani, Saqib Saleem, Harrdy Sandhu, Tahir Raj Bhasin, Jatin Sarna, and others. Initially scheduled for a release on June 4, the film has been postponed due to the second wave of the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

Apart from this, the actor had also announced in April that he will star in the Hindi adaptation of the 2005 Tamil psychological thriller Anniyan, directed by S Shankar. The remake will go on floors in 2022.
