All excited to start her endeavour of winning MTV Roadies Rising, Neha Dhupia got candid with one of the entertainment portals before she left for Jhansi.
Here’re the excerpts:
“I am super excited and I have the best time in Roadies, so much so that I have asked my manager to pack my dates as soon as I come back so that I don’t get any moments to miss the show,” quipped Neha.
Stating that she has always been a ‘boy’ among her gang, the show is all about her true self. She said, “Coming from an army background I have always been the adventure junkie always on the lookout for some adrenalin rush. This is a home ground for me and I am most comfortable. It would have been rather difficult to put on the damsel in distress mode for me.”

When she asked if the co-judges (Rannvijay Singh, Karan Kundra and Prince Narula) treat her in a special way or they share a bro bond, Neha laughed to say, “Not at all, I am the housewife among these boys and have to keep a check and organise their lunch and dinners.”
Talking about her gang members this year, the actress shared, “I think we have an amazing set of contestants this year. We have a mix of some passionate people. One is a bus conductor and there’s a girl who came out of the closet on national television and confessed to being a lesbian; I think there is a star in each one of them. Also, I believe this season I think will be the year of women power as we have some amazing girls on board. I am confident that either one of them or me as a gang leader would bring home the trophy.”
Neha went on to say that, “Last time I played with my heart but now I will also use my mind. As a person I get attached too easily and get emotional. But as a gang leader I have taken my experience as a learning curve and will turn it around this time.”
And finally, when she was questioned on how much she maintained to keep her ‘image’ on a reality show, the actress smiled to say, “You can’t put up an act for more than two days. I am myself in the show as you would see me some day performing tasks without any makeup and other days dressing up. I am just me on the show; that’s the beauty of Roadies and it’s phenomenal.”
