Roadies has not only set new benchmarks for itself but for other shows in the reality TV show space. MTV is the only channel in the country that understands the psyche of the youth and keeping in mind their needs, the channel never fails to reinvent itself. The show has not only successfully maintained to be relevant through these fifteen years but has also created a cult following for itself.”

We aim at establishing a significant equity and create innovative brand propositions through our association with sponsors like Renault, OPPO, ID Shoes and Durex this time around.”

“Associating with Roadies for three consecutive years is a result that our collaboration with MTV has been successful.  Roadies is synonymous to travel, exploration and adventure just like Renault DUSTER. The show has managed to garner positive response from the very first season from the youth and we are confident that this season will be ‘XTREME’-LY fruitful as well.” Renault India, Marketing, Head, Virat Khullar says.
