When Amitabh Bachchan made his small screen debut with Kaun Banega Crorepati, it saved him from financial ruin and also turned his career around. Without knowing it, the legendary actor had tapped into a market which was extremely lucrative simply because of its massive reach. After all, almost every household in the country has a TV. Since then, we’ve seen actors like Priyanka Chopra, Shah Rukh Khan and Salman Khan make their TV debuts with various shows. Now, it’s Ranveer Singh’s turn. Singh will be making his small screen debut with a quiz show called The Big Picture wherein audiences can play the game from the safety and comfort of their own homes.
“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 The Big Picture. The proposition of introducing India to a ‘now’ generation quiz show sealed the deal for me,” Singh said in a statement.
Besides that, Singh will also be seen in ’83, Cirkus and Karan Johar’s Takht.
