Model-anchor Pravesh Rana is set to begin his innings on the silver screen. The 27-year-old, who shot to fame as one of the participants of reality show Big Boss 3, will begin his Bollywood journey with Tigmanshu Dhulia’s adaptation of Shakespeare’s tragedy



Excited about his role in the film, he says, “I play the lead in the movie. The film is still in the pre-production stage, so I can’t reveal much. I will talk about it when the time is right.”


For Rana, entering films does not mean distancing himself from TV. He will soon be seen hosting the third season of UTV Bindass’ popular reality show

Emotional Atyachaar

, a show on which one can get a loyalty test done on his or her partner.

“The new season is better and bigger. Also, it’s always interesting to understand the reasons and mental status of people who come on the show to get loyalty tests done,” he says.

Rana however, will not host the show alone. Actor Ajay Devgn, who co-hosted an episode last season, will join him again as a host, for a few episodes. “It’s an absolute pleasure to host with Ajay. I have always admired him both as an actor and as a human being. The best thing about him is that he hasn’t got carried away with the success he has got in life,” says Rana.

Is the actor himself in a relationship? “Not at the moment,” he says, adding, “I believe that I’ll be with someone only when I can devote my full time to her. Right now, my priority is my professional life.”
