The first step on your road to Roadies is its registration form. The form is uploaded on MTV Roadies’s official website. For upcoming season, you can check this website from time to time, or simply stay updated with us. The form can also be filled on the spot at the venues mentioned on the site.
Next, you will have to perform in the auditions. The act for auditions may vary with the season and judges. In its 14th season, when Harbhajan Singh was one of the judges, the auditions round was carried out in the form of Group Discussions.
3. Personal Interviews
In final step, the judges will meet you personally to take your interview. There are thousands of candidates competing in this round. This makes it the trickiest part of the selection process. Also, this is the round that decides whether you will proceed ahead with them or not. And so, it’s always a good idea to prepare a little before you appear for the interview. Following tips may be of some help. Forge ahead.
- Never Lie
During personal interviews, in auditions or even while filling up the form, make it a point that whatever you write is cent percent truth. In the past, several candidates have been out of the show only on the account of speaking lies. Write and speak only what you feel. If you are caught with a lie, you are sure shot out.
- Use Decent Language
Never use abusive language in front of the judges. Abusive language doesn’t show free will. But an actual free will show in your language. So, be open minded from within but no need to brag about it externally.
- Show Don’t Tell
If you have a specialized skill, don’t tell or write about it so much. Show them why you have that skill.
- Just Be Yourself
The bottom line of all tips is, don’t try to become something. Just be cool and behave as you do normally. Despite of all your strengths or weaknesses, if you’re really made to be a Roadie, you’ll get an entry!
