Esha Deol to join ‘MTV Roadies’ as a judge

MUMBAI: Actor Esha Deol had been looking forward to making her debut for a while now but wanted to be a part of a show which was popular with the youth. MTV Roadies is a cult show followed by millions of youngsters across India. The show is about the ultimate fight to find that hero within you and Esha’s no – nonsense persona combined with her ability to disengage herself from emotional entanglements makes her the perfect fit for the show.


Esha Deol will be seen on the show alongside the original Roadie – Rannvijay Singh who will be back for the twelfth season of the show – MTV Roadies X2. But with Raghu-Rajiv not being a part of the show anymore, as announced by Raghu through Twitter, fans of the show are gearing up for the unexpected this time around.  


Raghu-Rajiv to give MTV Roadies a miss this season


Raghu Ram, the man who has been with MTV Roadies right from its inception will no longer be a part of the show. MTV Roadies, the cult reality show, is a nationwide hunt for the ‘roadie’ – the one who has it in him or her to become a hero. The two heavyweights Raghu-Rajiv were known for cutting down contestants to size with their sharp comments and grueling tasks. The MTV Raodies auditions, which hold the distinction of being one of the most difficult audition rounds for any television show, meant only one thing – impressing Raghu and Rajiv.


Now, with Raghu – Rajiv stepping away from the show, as confirmed by Raghu when he tweeted - "Roadies is happening. I'm not gonna do it, though. I'm done with it. Moved on. About time, too." -  it remains to be seen what MTV is planning for the upcoming MTV Roadies X2, especially with the news of roping in Bollywood actress Esha Deol for the new season. One can only wonder, what other twists and turns are in store for viewers as MTV Raodies X2 gears up for an all new ride without these two!
