Actress Neha Dhupia has replaced Esha Deol to become the new judge of reality show “Roadies X3” amid reports that Esha opted out of the show due to monetary issues.
Dhupia, 35, said she is excited to be a part of the show.
“To influence youth and to be influenced by them is what excited me to take up the show.
“And coming from an army background, I think I’ve got a thing or two to add to its action aspect. I want to propagate the idea of being yourself, having faith and never giving up on your dreams,” Dhupia said in a statement.
