Thousands of youngsters who went for auditions of reality TV
Roadies X2 on Saturday morning were in for a rude shock when
they got to know that they had been tricked.
A message with wrong details giving false information and
claiming that the auditions have been organised at Delhi Film
Institute Saturday, was being circulated on all platforms-- be it
Facebook, Twitter or personal message.
As the people began reaching the venue, the channel learnt about
what was going on. The channel maintains that it is not aware who
was behind it.
Aditya Swamy, EVP - Viacom18 and Business Head - MTV India,
said: "We have come across several rumours mentioning incorrect
dates and venues of 'Roadies' auditions. Please don't believe any
messages or Facebook posts, tweets or communication other than that
sent from official 'MTV ROADIES' Facebook page, Twitter handle or
"We just kicked off with Pune yesterday where we held our first
auditions and we will be coming to Delhi Dec 13," he added.
The reality show, which is immensely popular among the younger
generation, has gone through a major revamp this season.
