The team of adventure reality show Roadies Revolution, whose journey was put on hold due to the coronavirus-induced lockdown, resumed shoot in Mumbai on Thursday. Also, for a change, the show this time will not feature a road-trip.
A source shared with indianexpress.com that the impending leg of Roadies Revolution is being filmed in the outskirts of Mumbai.
“The contestants traveled to Mumbai a couple of weeks back and completed their quarantine period. The cast and crew also had to undergo Covid-19 tests before they resumed shoot. They will also be staying at the same place and a proper bio-bubble has been created around them,” added the source.
The season has Rannvijay Singha as the ringmaster while Neha Dhupia, Prince Narula, Nikhil Chinapa and Raftaar are the gang leaders. Raftaar, who recently shared on Instagram that he has tested positive for coronavirus, will be replaced by ex-Roadies Varun Sood in the remaining journey.
Roadies features intense on-ground activity and the channel shared that it has ensured that all filming locations are equipped with optimum medical facilities, including an ambulance on the set at all times. The contestants and crew will be provided with packed food packets that would have been through a UV sterilizer, along with timely breaks during shoots to ensure all safety measures are adhered to. Even the high intensity tasks on the show will be created in a safe environment under the supervision of professionals specialising in safety.
The season of Roadies Revolution kick started with the aim to find youngsters who’ve brought about a change in society. The team has now also decided to raise awareness about coronavirus precautions through the episodes.
