MTV Roadies is one of the most thrilling and adventurous shows out there. With every new season Roadies brings with it a thrilling pair of judges and even more interesting contestants. The latest season of Roadies is seeing a huge change as the judges are now taking auditions for the show online. Popular DJ and fellow Roadies judge Nikhil Chinapa has now revealed his own experience of taking online auditions.
Talking about the process of judging a show like Roadies Chinapa said, 'We miss the personal banter between all four judges and Rannvijay... and of course the virtual auditions only have two judges, but the task for us has remained the same – to find worthy contestants for this year's format, Roadies Revolution. I've personally found the virtual auditions to be a brilliant adaptation to the times we live in, what we're all calling the COVID-19 era. Through it we've discovered some brilliant individuals – just the way we do at the on-ground auditions and the task of selecting just one (or maybe two) for the eventual journey, is going to be a tough one.'
Chinapa also said that the auditions are much harder. He added saying,'The auditions are much, much harder to do in the virtual world both because of the paucity of time per contestant and the absence of the on-ground "vibe" in the audition room. I don't see it affecting the show on-screen as eventually, all the selected contestants will be on the same journey.'
