Roadies Revolution resumes shoot in Mumbai

Earlier, Rapper Raftaar, who is one of the mentors on Roadies Revolution, has been tested positive

MUMBAI: The seventeenth season of adventure reality show Roadies started earlier this year in Rishikesh and moved to Himachal just before the lockdown put a grinding halt on all outdoor shoots. However, with all the standard operating procedures issued by the I&B Ministry, the rest of the shoot of Roadies Revolution has resumed in Mumbai starting this month.

Cast and crew members, on the set, are strictly adhering to protocols starting from social distancing norms to sanitization. It is mandatory to wear masks, face shields and hand gloves. There is stay over facilities for contestants and crew. The contestants who are travelling for the show have been following the necessary quarantine procedures and will be stationed at one place from start to end of the shoot. Also, Covid2019 tests have been done for all the members on the set.

For an adventure show like Roadies, which requires intense on-ground activity, MTV is ensuring that all shooting locations are equipped with proper medical facilities including an ambulance that would be available on the set at all times. Instead of having a buffet system, all the contestants and crew will be provided with packed food, that would first run through a UV sterilizer.

The high-intensity tasks on the show will now be conducted in a safe environment under the supervision of professionals, specializing in safety, to ensure that all safety measures are implemented.

With a daily dose of action and drama, Roadies Revolution is keen on increasing the entertainment quotient for its fans. As the shooting has resumed, the show aims to raise awareness and prioritize safety and well-being to fight against the global pandemic.

Strict sanitisation procedure presumably began after Rapper Raftaar, who is one of the mentors on Roadies Revolution, along with Rannvijay Singha, Neha Dhupia, has informed that he has tested positive for the Covid2019. He shared the news on 9 September. Raftaar is currently home quarantined. "I wanted to give you an update. I had to go for Roadies and before that, I had to test for Covid2019. Two of my tests were negative, but the result which came today was positive. BMC has asked me to self-isolate," said Raftaar on his Instagram Story.
