Esha Deol is all set to make her small screen debut. Esha will be joined by Olympic medalist Vijender Singh and television actor Karan Kundra on reality show MTV Roadies, which is currently in its 13th season.
“Esha Deol had been looking forward to make her television debut for a while now but wanted to be a part of the show which was popular with the youth. Esha’s no-nonsense persona combined with her ability to disengage herself from emotional entanglements makes her the perfect fit for the show,” the makers said in a statement.
Esha married her businessman boyfriend, Bharat Takhtani, on June 29, 2012. After two years of marital bliss, she has decided to make a comeback into showbiz. Nonetheless, the comeback will not be as an actress but as a host for television’s most celebrated reality show MTV Roadies.
Rannvijay Singh will be back as the host of the show. Regular MTV Roadies judges Raghu and Rajiv Ram will not be a part of the show anymore.
MTV Roadies, the cult reality show, is a nationwide hunt for the roadie, the one who has it in him or her to become a hero. The two heavyweights Raghu and Rajiv were known for cutting down contestants to size with their sharp comments and tough tasks.
The MTV Raodies auditions, which hold the distinction of being one of the most difficult audition rounds for any television show, meant only one thing, impressing Raghu and Rajiv.
Raghu and Rajiv stepping away from the show, was confirmed by Raghu via Twitter, “Roadies is happening. I’m not gonna do it, though. I’m done with it. Moved on. About time, too.”
It remains to be seen what MTV is planning for the upcoming MTV Roadies X2, especially with the news of roping in Esha Deol for the new season.
One can only wonder, what other twists and turns are in store for viewers as MTV Raodies X2 gears up for an all new ride without these two!
