Thrill, excitement, a pounding heart, an adrenaline rush and an extreme life, these are just a few things that the youth of today wish to experience. They say fear is nothing more than an obstacle that stands in the way of success. Endorsing this thought, MTV brings a brand new genre-bending show that takes a look at the life of Rannvijay Singh that none of us have seen before – WOODLAND presents MTV Rann VJ Run powered by Samsung Galaxy S4. Starting October 27, 2013 on Sunday at 6pm, the show captures Rannvijay’s journey of a life time.
A 10 part series, MTV Rann VJ Run follows Rannvijay as he embarks on an epic journey to discover new places, new sports, new cultures, new people and a new way of life. Each destination across the globe will see Rannvijay challenge himself into doing things that he always wanted to do but never imagined he could.
An established, VJ, actor and a youth icon from an army background with a dare-devil attitude, Rannvijay epitomizes the adventurous streak seen in the youth today. He dares to step out of his comfort zone into a world full of challenges and adventure as he tries out several extreme sports, gets mentored by ten of the world’s greatest Red Bull extreme athletes, parties hard and lives the life only a few can dream of. The first episode will see him travel to Dubai on his birthday to meet UAE’s motocross champion Mohammed Balooshi, who will train Rannvijay for a professional motocross race. Rannvijay’s final race turns out to be an extremely emotional experience for him. From here on Rannvijay will challenge many more athletes on the likes of Ryan Doyle, Kriss Kyle and Aaron Hadlow for various sports such as Parkour, BMX, Kite surfing and much more.
Speaking about the new show, Aditya Swamy, EVP and Business Head, MTV India says, “We have always seen our favourite stars in charge and in control. But how often do you get to see the real person behind the star, that’s exactly what this show is about. The most real reality show which you will see, it captures what happens when a man challenges himself to the very limit. It’s not about how hard you fall but it’s how fast you will bounce back.
Thrilled at being part of the show, Rannvijay Singh said, “I am extremely delighted to be part of a project like MTV Rann VJ Run which makes me go that extra mile and challenge myself. I am not going to play against any opponents but myself. It will be just me and the game. This is one journey I just can’t wait to commence.”
MTV Rann VJ Run is about immersing oneself in different cultures, experiencing new things with old friends, while making many new ones, building bonds and enjoying life to the fullest. It’s about building strength for challenges and overcoming the fear of conquering something new and unknown. It’s also about turning an ordinary life into extraordinary one, where sanity comes from being insane. Conquering his fears, Rannvijay will explore the highest peak and the deepest caves, covering every possible landscape leading to a path of self discovery.
