The Big Picture, which looks like big fun, will start airing every weekend at 8:30 pm on Colors TV from October 16. Colors TV also posted the promo on its Twitter handle and wrote, Machaiye shor kyunki intezaar hoga no more, aa rahe hain Ranveer lekar ek anokha quiz show. Dekhiye The Big Picture, 16th October se, Sat-Sun, raat 8 baje, sirf #Colors par. #TheBigPicture #TaqdeerKiTareekh #RanveerOnColors #TasveerSeTaqdeerTak.”
Contestants of the game will be tested on their visual memory and general knowledge, and they have to answer twelve visual-based questions correctly to win the grand prize money. Like the Kaun Banega Crorepati format, there will be three lifelines to help them stay alive in the game and viewers can also play the game from the safety of their home and win grand prizes.
Ranveer Singh told The Indian Express that his artistic journey has been marked by ‘the urge to experiment and explore’, wherein he has been on the good side of fortune to be able to showcase his acting chops, be loved by the viewers for his talent and succeed. And The Big Picture is the medium, a ‘unique and engaging way’ of connecting with the viewers, while also being his TV debut the way he wanted. “The proposition of introducing India to a ‘now’ generation quiz show sealed the deal for me,” said the Filmfare Award-winning actor.
On the work front, he will be seen in Kabir Khan’s 83, co-starring Deepika Padukone. Ranveer Singh will play the iconic cricketer Kapil Dev in the sports biopic.
