From being in the judging panel on Roadies to being a gang leader on MTV Roadies Rising, Nikhil Chinappa sure knows the game better than anyone. The Roadies battle kick started in Orchha, Madhya Pradesh with all the gang leaders prepped up to win the first task of the deadliest season ever. This being Nikhil’s first stint as a gang leader, Nikhil’s passion for his team and the game was unbelievable and contagious.
Nikhil was seen supporting his gang members while they performed against other gangs. During the game other gang leaders- Rannvijay, Neha and Prince started revolting against Nikhil’s gang for going against the rule of the game. While Neha and Rannvijay said that Nikhil’s team should be ‘disqualified’, Nikhil was seen supporting his team and said, “I am sorry. I don’t agree. You have a barricade, you have got so much water. In the heat of a battle how is someone supposed to keep their balance. It’s not a quiz show, it is a task.” Neha was upset because Nikhil was supporting his team even when his gang members were going against the rule. Nikhil had a heated argument with other gang leaders and said, “When a contestant performs a task you can’t ask them not to push the barricade. They will try taking as much advantage as they want.”
Nikhil’s know-how of the game and his guidance and support did help his team perform well.As they say, all is fair in love and war!
MTV Roadies Rising is known as the deadliest season ever for some legit reason! The 1st episode of MTV Roadies Rising kick started in Orchha, Madhya Pradesh with the gang leaders participating in a task for the first time in the history of Roadies. Gang leaders- Rannvijay Singha, Neha Dhupia, Nikhil Chainappa and Prince Narula were taken by surprise when Gaelyn asked them to be a part of the task.
Gang leaders did put their best foot forward in order to get the first-mover advantage. They were tested on how well they knew their gang members. Gang members were made to wear masks and stand next to each other. From a list of traits, gang leaders had to guess the trait that belonged to their gang members in order to win the task.
Commenting on the task, a source close to the sets said, “It was fun to see the gang leaders perform the task. Nikhil did pretty well despite being the newest gang leader. Moreover, it was amazing to see the energy and team spirit among the gang leaders.”
