IIIT-A Roadies 1.0
A remake of the popular T.V. show, Roadies is not where you’ll score brownie points if you just sing or dance. It is not some talent hunt contest where a shimmy-shake or a dance move or two will help you win. We are not looking for some gifted idols here.
This is a battle that will test your brawn and wits until there are none left. This is where you have to leave your ‘I’m so cool’ attitude at home. The journey is full of arduous and earlier unimaginable tasks and if you’ve already accepted defeat and thinking of calling it quits, why don’t you send your enemies instead? We’ll get the dirty job done for you!!!
So if you think you’ve got the guts to survive in this game of naked ambition that requires courage and a never-say-die spirit then what are you waiting for??? Come and be a part of IIIT-A Roadies 1.0 and experience the ‘real’ thing!!!
