Ex Roadies contestants compete with Chelsea India in the city; Neha Dhupia, Rannvijay Singh join the madness

Written by The Optimist

India’s longest-running reality show is back in Kolkata after 2 years and the buzz amongst the youth is at an all-time high.

Backed by a new theme, Roadies Revolution promises to offer unrivalled adventure but with a purpose – an intent to drive social change. Moving beyond the realms of a reality show, Roadies, this time, aims to revolutionize and bring about social impact, one task at a time.

Adding onto this spirit further, MTV punched in the magic of football by organising two friendly matches a day before the auditions. Ex contestants of Roadies took on Chelsea India team in the presence of celebrity leader Neha Dhupia and ringmaster Rannvijay Singh as an ode to the city’s undying passion for soccer.

The enthusiasts on the ground, playing in full spirit

Popular ex-contestants of the show (Yukti, Sohil, Gaurav, Lakshya, Tara, Kashish, Aarushi, Aashish) represented Team Roadies as they hit the ground with boys from Chelsea India in a friendly encounter on 10th January. Kids from Magic Bus Foundation, an NGO that works on child education also joined in the fun as they competed with Team Roadies in an evening replete with autographed footballs, jerseys, medals and more. Chilling temperatures notwithstanding, hordes of youngsters stormed the Clive House Playground as Neha Dhupia, Rannvijay Singh and Prince Narula spoke about the need for fitness amongst kids and the unending passion for Roadies.
