MUMBAI: MTV will audition next seven Roadies - four guys and three girls to be part of the second season of MTV Hero Honda Roadies II. The audition will take place on 5 August at Ravindra Natya Mandir, Prabhadevi from 9 am to 4 pm.

With Pune, Chennai, Kolkata, New Delhi and Chandigarh auditions having concluded earlier, Mumbai will be the last city to host the auditions.

Film Stars from Yash Raj Films' new movie 'Dhoom' will be egging on the contestants to become Roadies, along with MTV Hero Honda Roadie of 2003 Rannvijay and MTV VJ Sophia.

Last year's most popular Roadie, Rannvijay; will lead the trail for Roadies II. The Grand Trunk Road demands physical endurance, mental strength & team effort. The Roadies will meet people of all types, take part in their lives, understand their issues and try to improve the quality of their own personal lives, stated an official release.

'MTV Hero Honda Roadies I is presented by Hero Honda in association with Nokia, SF Jeans, Mountain Dew, Rai University, Hutch and Radio Mirchi.

MTV is on the look out for seven roadies, with an attitude to 'live' for success and thrive on adventure. The male candidate has to know how to ride a motorbike and have a two-wheeler license. For female candidates it is not necessary, but it will be an added plus point. Selection will be based on a psychological profile, group discussion & a personal interview. The auditions will telecast on MTV as the 'MTV Hero Honda Roadies II - Audition Specials'.

MTV Hero Honda Roadies II will flag off from the 'City of Joy' Kolkata on 20 August, to the historic landmark - the Wagah border. In the vein of the MTV Hero Honda Roadies I, the chosen 7 Roadies will ride across this magnificent stretch, for 35 days across more than 2000 kms. MTV's 'reality' candid camera will capture their joys, sorrows, love, hate, betrayal, agony and ecstasy across this journey -- to be aired on MTV. Capsuled in 26 episodes, MTV Hero Honda Roadies II, will show how seven 'Roadies' react to situations alien to them.

The option of leaving the journey is open at any point of time, but every Roadie who makes it to the end will win big! Each of the seven Roadies will win a 223cc Hero Honda 'Karizma' bike and be part of the second season of MTV's first reality adventure show! The most popular Roadie will win a whopping cash prize of Rs. 5, 00,000, added the release.
