MTV Roadies 9 - The Auditions Story

Wednesday, October 19, 2011

So as you all know, I got a press invite for MTV Roadies 9 !! (Thank you so much !!)

Press Invite

I mean I couldn't believe my eyes when I got an email from Blogadda to invite me for attending Roadies Delhi auditions as a press member! Then came a call from Mumbai, and then another formal email! Everything was happening so fast, that I couldn't believe if someone was making a bakra out of me or if it was for real!! :D But then I Googled, Twitter searched, and Facebook searched about it to triple confirm! Saala research industry me rehte rehte ekdum har cheez Google karne ki aadat pad gai hai! :D

Anyways, so on the morning of Auditions, I reached the venue at about 10 am, and Oh My Fucking GOD! There was a stream of people.. No no .. there was a bloody river of human beings! Almost 1 KM long line. All dudes and dudettes thrown around everywhere! I drove around for about 25 minutes to find one parking space! Phew! Frankly speaking, except for Pragati Maidaan (where whole Delhi gathers to see all hottie chicks during auto expo! :P ) I have never ever seen so many people sprawling around!

Roadies Crew

Ahem Ahem! Then the coordinator from MTV called and confirmed, Press is allowed entry from Gate number 2! Bole to exclusive entry! :D One other girl from MTV took me to the catchment area, where people were lined up on the floor, waiting for the GD rounds!

Roadies Participants Waiting for Group Discussion
I must say, these people have truckloads of energy!! I mean after waiting for hours and hours, they still had so much energy to shout, cheer and pose for pics when they saw camera in my hand! I clicked a lot of pics, and trust me, there were enough hot chicks to click 2000 pics, and not get bored of it! :D

I even managed to attend a few group discussions of Roadies! And seriously, these guys can make all the kids in all the B Schools and engineering colleges I go for recruitment literally CRY !! By God ki kasam, have never seen such die hard spirit and burning rage to demolish any and all opponents in a GD anywhere! Awesomeness!

Bade Bhayya!

Chote Bhayya!

And then came the moment, for which we all were waiting for! A one-on-one meeting with Raghu and Rajeev!! I wouldn't spoil the fun for you, but here is a short 20 minute video I shot while we all were talking to these two icons! (You will need to crank up your speaker volumes, as I shot it with my digital camera!)


(If someone needs the high definition version as well, do let me know. It was 2GB in size. I reduced the size for uploading it)

Seriously, really really made my day!!
