Roadies 9 Journey – The Stunner ?

The word “Roadies” bring out the madness, craziness, enthusiasm, sob stories, fake-ness & a lot more amongst the youth of India. As the auditions for the show begin, people await & prepare for days. The D- Day is jam packed with people which starts with GDs, forms and more & ultimately facing the judges trio – Raghu, Rajiv & Ranvijay.

Roadies 9 Season started on September 16th and the telecast started few weeks back with much ho-la-ho. The auditions went on in major cities , also in Hyderabad from where the maximum number of Roadies got selected. In total, there were 13 people selected, with a majority of girls. In words of Raghu- It’s only getting BIGGER & this is the first time the show is going to USA.  The selected Roadies are :-

1. Diyali Chauhan , Kanaka Raju & Pratima Dagar – Delhi

2. Abhishek P. Shetty- Pune

3. Dimpy Yadav & Himani Sharma- Chandigarh

4. Manali Banerjee- Kolkata

5. Taranjeet Kaur, Vikas, Aarsh Sharif, Vinay Abhishek, Anirudh Sharma & Khushbu Mendoza- Hyderabad

The Roadies journey is about to begin from Tomorrow , i.e March 17th. The interesting part is that for the first time in Indian Television, a show has been premiered on the Big screen. Yes, you heard it right. The premiere was held in Delhi on the March 15th, which showcased the start of journey of Roadies 9. This season promises to be bigger and the start is grand in itself.

And it does not just end here. This is the first Indian reality Tv show to be shot in USA, says Rajiv. He claims that the audience would enjoy new culture since America is a unique place and everything is larger than life in that country. It will have a basketball task at San Francisco and  a man versus wild survival task at the Death Valley of California. The journey of ‘Roadies 9’ will kick start from Jaipur, then Delhi, and finally to the U.S.

This show promises a lot of adventure, back biting, plans & games, group-ism, over-the-top-drama, tasks, immunity, vote-outs, abusing & ultimately a winner with his/her Karizma bike. Ultimately, it will be a masala show ; living upto the name of reality shows. Only difference is that this one has major viewership of youth & children.

Let’s wait and watch if the show lives upto it’s promises of being the most grand season ever. Let’s see if the show makers are able to make it any different after so many seasons.

The episode telecasts on the television sets tomorrow at 7pm. So stay tuned & do let us know what’s your opinion regarding the first look at the journey of Roadies 9. 

Cheers to the spirit of Roadies 9 !!

Isn’t this amazing- Brazil’s no. 1 TV show is inspired by India

Caminho Das Indias

Caminho Das Indias

Caminho Das Indias (India’s Way), yes that’s the name of the show that has got all the Brazialians hooked up to TV! The theme- “Upper-caste girl meets Dalit boy. They fall in love. Girl’s evil family objects and tries to marry her off. Boy decides he must fight for his ladylove.” That’s very much Indian, right?

What’s more interesting is that they haven’t tried to mix their culture at all. Set at Rajasthan the show even uses some Hindi terms and also uses Bollywood style filming (where kissing scenes are cut just at the right time :-)). The show has made Brazilians understand Indian culture better and they are just loving it. Read full story here.

Just as Indians are looking elsewhere to get a clue about other countries’ culture and incorporate them in Indian shows, foreigners are seeking India. This is a very good process which can lead to cross-culturism in a new and effective way. As more and more common people get to about other countries they will start understanding thier rituals and religions and will eventually help make this World a better place. Yeah.. right I may be too optimistic, but what’s the harm!
