MUMBAI: MTV, the youth entertainment channel under Viacom18, has announced the eighth season of its cult adventure reality show, Roadies.

Roadies is a classic example of a property that started off as TV show but is now engaging with consumers across multiple platforms. A sum of all these closely connected parts makes the brand bigger and more exciting. Roadies Battleground 3, has been significantly scaled up with support from our partners Ceat and Hero Honda and what you will witness is a true multimedia experience which is just the beginning of a very exciting new season of Roadies.? 

Roadies Battleground 3 and Roadies 8 will see return of Raghu Ram, who was not on the show in its last season.
