For the last 15 years, no other show has connected with the youth as strongly as Roadies by simply innovating and challenging the limits of action and adventure. The show, known for its unique formats and fascinating tasks every season, has the most loyal and aspiring fans who dare to do more.
Legendary sportsman and real-life warrior, Sandeep Singh joins the league for the first-time locking horns with small screen’s favorite star Prince Narula who is determined to win. Raaftar whose music echoes amongst the youth is prepped up for his second stint along with seasoned expert Nikhil Chinappa who is here to spruce up the fight. Gorgeous, poised and two times winner Neha Dhupia is back to clinch her third title. Being the only boss lady in this man’s world, she will surely have all eyes on her gang. And to top it all is Ringmaster Rannvijay Singh who will stir up the game like never before. In the recently held Pune auditions, the mentors turned heads as they grilled contestants to become a part of the most remarkable ride ever.
Legendary sportsman and former Indian Hockey Captain Sandeep Singh who joins the show for the first time ever expressed – “This is my first association with the show and the concept of finding real life heroes propelled me. All of us have the potential to rise beyond the ordinary and make a difference and that’s what I believe. It’s going to be a new experience and I am eager to explore something I haven’t done before.”
Rannvijay Singh, the self-made man and who has been associated with the show for the longest said “From being a contestant and winner to a host to a winning gang leader and a host again, Roadies has come a full circle for me. Yet every season throws up a new challenge and intrigues me more. This time, I am hoping to meet some dynamic contestants who have the ability to tackle what comes their way and surge ahead.”
Neha Dhupia, whose gang member clinched the title last season said, “It’s already the fourth year as a gang leader and my excitement only increases with every season! So much has changed for the better in these years, both personally and professionally for me. Roadies Real Heroes is an adventurous getaway for me every year where I meet new people, go through a journey of courage and strength with them and end up making friends too. This season is much bigger, better and I can’t wait for the auditions to begin!”
King of reality shows, Prince Narula said “Roadies is very close to my heart. This show brings out the best in me in terms of physical and mental strength. Season on season, the show is evolving which makes me look forward to newer challenges with my gang and emerging stronger than before. Let’s see what the city has instore for us.”
Roadies’ seasoned judge Nikhil Chinappa said “It’s an incredible achievement to see that Roadies has been able to consistently connect with audiences and entertain fans for 16 long seasons. As the theme suggests, Roadies Real Heroes promises a grittier and more riveting season this time. From the contestants and their clashes to the challenges they encounter, the idea is to level up the contest and see who crosses the line first.”
Raaftar who comes back for the second time said “In the new season, I will also have newer plans and surprises up my sleeve to turn things around. Being my second stint, I am much more aware and prepped up of what lies ahead, and I am ready to take on the game with a new gang.”
