New Delhi, Jan. 20 (PTI): MTV Roadies, in its 10th season, will head to the Northeast this time.
This season of the adventure-based reality show, which went on air last night, has the VJ-turned actor Rannvijay Singh and Roadies producer Raghu Ram heading two teams comprising old and new contestants, who will be seen battling it out on the hilly terrains of the Northeast.
“We are going to the Northeast this time. As Roadies, it is our responsibility to show the country how beautiful the Northeast is. We were the biggest crew that has ever been to that part. We have shot in so many places where people haven’t been before,” Rannvijay said.
The season’s theme song, Jajabor, in Assamese and Hindi, is a collaboration between singer Papon and Raghu.
After being a Roadie himself, Rannvijay, 29, went on to host the popular show and this will be the first time he will lead a team of new contestants selected via auditions.
“Roadies 10 is Raghu versus me. It’s a new thing for us. The old roadies are in Raghu’s team and the new ones are in mine. It’s a new format people will be excited to see,” Rannvijay said.
“We will air auditions in the next five weeks and then the journey will start. There’s a lot of buzz on Internet and I am sure this season will be fantastic,” he added.
There is speculation whether this season will be the last.
“The journey has been long but evolving. As long as the show is going good we will continue,” Rannvijay said.
