Indian boxer Vijender Singh, who has taken on the role of a judge on “MTV Roadies” this season, says he is a big fan of Raghu Ram and Rajiv Lakshman, who were judges and mentors on the hugely popular youth reality show in the past editions.
The 29-year-old is one of the four judges on the latest season of the reality show “MTV Roadies”, which has undergone a major revamp this time.
While the famous rough and tough twins — Raghu and Rajiv — are not part of the show for the first time, the season will be judged by actress Esha Deol, TV actor Karan Kundra, Vijender and Rannvijay Singh.
“I’m a very big fan of Raghu and Rajiv. I have been on ‘Roadies’ before and I have always been a fan of the show,” Vijender told IANS.
This season will feature four gangs where each judge will be mentoring their respective teams and Vijender is set to deal with the contestants is his own way.
“I am not an aggressive person in real life, but if someone misbehaves, or doesn’t pay respect, then that will drive me very angry,” the boxer said.
The show, he says, is “all about youth, it’s all about energy and craze and the journey”.
“‘Roadies’ is very different, very unique. The format is different this time,” he said.
“MTV Roadies” features handpicked contestants fighting it out with each other in a game of adventure, egos, friendship, hatred, backbiting and betrayal.
