Bollywood diva Neha Dhupia will be returning to the upcoming season of 'Roadies Xtreme' as a gang leader. The actress has described the stunt-based reality show as the most gender neutral place to work, while Rannvijay Singha says girls need to be treated equally to men. Neha will be seen alongside popular rapper Raftaar, also VJ, DJ, and TV host Nikhil Chinapa, actor Prince Narula as gang leaders on the show, while Rannvijay will be seen in a new avatar in the upcoming fifteenth season. Talking about gender equality on the MTV show, Rannvijay said:
“We were always asked whether girls are fit for ‘Roadies’ (or not), but the best answer to this question was given by Neha and her team’s member Shweta, who won the last season.
Adding to that, Neha said:“We don’t give special treatment to girls on ‘Roadies’ because they don’t need such kind of a treatment. They win the game when they are equally treated with their male counterparts. I don’t feel they need any kind of support to win. They just need a platform to showcase their talent.”
Nikhil said that over the years, the craze for “Roadies” has become huge. Nikhil said;“I don’t think there’s any need to empower women as they are already empowered. You can enable them… That’s the good way of looking at them. All are treated equally on this show. In the film industry where I am working, this is a job which is the most gender neutral place to be in.”
“Roadies Xtreme” will be aired next year.“‘Roadies’ franchise is become huge over the years. Not just the show, if you see fans, they also have become so much more passionate over the years. This year, the show is going to be ridiculously extreme,”
