Did MTv Roadies 8 fake Suraj really trick Raghu-Rajiv duo

MTv’s popular series Roadies is now in the 8th season and for the first time finds itself in a strange controversy. Apparently, one of the contestants, Suraj, tricked the supremos Raghu-Rajiv and Ranvijay during interview with a sob story to get a go ahead for Roadies!

Suraj appeared for the interview process for MTv Roadies 8 and really got the judges serious and interested in him with his bad-luck-sob story. The story had all the elements of a Hindi Bollywood thriller. He started with how much he loved his mother, how his father used to get drunk and beat his mother and how his mother passed away because of disease and negligence, and how he ran away from home, slept on streets, cleaned roads, worked as a rickshaw driver…but still had the passion to appear for a roadies show!!! Definitely, not just the judges, but the followers of the series as well were taken aback by his sob story. Surely, we all felt, the boy deserved a chance.

Now, news reports suggest, the simple boy from a small village wasn’t so simple at all. Suraj, it seems is actually Nagesh P. Mithun, a student of Indian Institute of Bartending. he is said to have successfully performed at a Bartending Seminar & Workshop held on Tuesday 27th July, 2010 for students of Merit Swiss Asian School of Hotel Management. He is also known to have worked in a call center in Mumbai. That explains why he had his eyebrow pierced!

Mtv roadies fake Suraj

The question is how did Raghu-Rajeev miss such things. They are masters in understanding human psyche. Their toughness and mental strength is what gets the show going on. How did they get carried away from this sob story? Why did MTv not do a background check to ensure that what the contestant says is true. With his act, Nagesh aka Suraj has not just hurt the credibility of Raghu-Rajiv but also of the entire Roadies series. A Delhi Times report of 23rd March suggested that Suraj was helped in his fake mission by none other than Ashutosh Kaushik, winner of Roadies 5. However, we feel that Ashutosh can’t be blamed for guiding Suraj, if at all he did. The fault lies only with Suraj for faking the drama, Raghu-Rajiv for failing prey to it and MTv for not verifying the contestants background.

Meanwhile, one thing is certain. Suraj has made his future bright. He’d soon be hogged by all television and news channels for his side of the story. His entry into this year’s Big Boss may not surprise anyone. And who knows, maybe some producer will buy his story and make a Bollywood movie out of it!

This is what fake contestant Suraj said to Delhi Times when asked about the whole thing “I lied to take revenge on behalf of the those who are insulted by the judges in the show”. How lame Suraj, how lame…

    hi.. am big fan of roadies… just want to say the story teller ( suraj) played well cz in India wen people say they r frm village they get respect form the urban people and tht was his game… wen he said abt his story ragu rajeev and ranvijay they found something interesting from him i.w they hv selected him.. And most imp its nt there headache to check there( contestant) background for the show . its just a game which there to entertain people it is nothing there to prove something… Raghu Rajeev ka kuch bhi nahi gaya.. the biggest looser is suraj who cant be taken trusty worthy by.anybody.. In a interview he Quoted ” mene badala liya un sab kliye jine ragu ne insult kiya)… all bullshit those people r deserving they r in the show and got selected too.. I hv seen all the auditions and the contestant who were insulted they deserve to be insulted… Roddiesssssssssssssssssss rocks…. surajjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjjj sucks( dub gaya)

    I have been big fan of Roadies. Watching Sooraj’s P.I. touched my heart, Knowing about his struggle for the life had encouraged many people including me. But its very hard to believe that Sooraj was a lier. I from the depth of my heart prayed that he should be the winner, coz he was deserving. I considered him my hero. I am SHATTERED Sooraj bhaiya. ” U LIED”. Now it is difficult for me to believe anybody’s life struggle story.

    Dear Raghu/Rajiv/Ranvijay

    I salute you for the tasks you play with the contestants and what you make them to do , Suraj , you need to really f***k his happiness and never beleive any story and as mentioned do a verification check if possible which would be a difficult task. The way he convinced you people with the name of mother was the pathetic thing ever happend. And Suraj dont you have self conscience that you put your mom’s name forward for a fake story. I love the rough attitude of raghu as a big fan of you and ranvijay. Keep up the Spirit. I pray that roadies go further to heights and take of the bad name what that sucker Suraj gave you all.

    I am a big fan of MTV Roadies. coz i think this is not a script written show. Watching Suraj audition, as he tell about his struggle , it really touched my heart. Even I prayed God for his Win. But as I came to know his truth that he a student of somewhere in Mumbai and he lied totally lied in audition, i was shocked. Even i didnt believe about suraj that he has been releaved for a while. Now its very difficult to believe someone’s life struggle,……… But I waana say to suraj. Fantastic acting……. You deserve to be in BIG BOSS next season..Really.
    U got the publicity whether it is negative or positive.

    **** those who got insulted by raghu,
    tis is the problem with tis generation, when some people try to bring people with revolution to the screen thy like to deny the gud facts…. now suraj has ****** himself, no self identity, no dignity, no true spirit of life… he is gonna continue faking truout his life, maa baap ko fake kiya, nw wat more!..
    raghu deosnt need to check hid background, ture tht they are making a tv show, to check your background they are not taking admissions for any professional course.criteria change for every show in life… accept it…. nahi tho baag ja… ;)

    HATS OFF TO YOU SOORAJ !!!! BRAVOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO….I always felt Raghu & Rajiv are not that great and they keep posing to be human mind readers. More of attitude rather than real calibre. They are good but not superb or flawless. You have proved the point ! KUDOS to you ……………………………………….the best punch to their ALMIGHTY attitude. :) CHEERSSSSSSSSSSSSSS !!!!!!!!

    except ranvijay other duos are vandals.they are using rough words and saying that roadies is for dignity.They used to use these things and when suraj said vandalised words they are crying for cleanness.
    the duos are not deserving to be in roadines first.

    Hi All ..I am big fan of roadies ..i watched almost all roadies.SURAJ u did the right thing , there is nothing wrong is there . For getting success you can choose any path until it harm anyone.. still i respect you and your feeling .Raghu and rajiv take it spoorty… u did so many thing thats are not ethical …so don’t react that much ethic ….whatevere u did last that putting the donkey with suraj name ..that hurts me lot and that shows ………
    One more suggestion for raghu and rajiv don’t tell next time onward nobody can make you fool.
    Suraj lots of thanks .. raghu and rajiv u got back watever u did for thousand people.
    Ranvijay ……. ur always respectful

    Well he wanted to be on show by hook or crook, who does not want to be……….. He clearly has shattered feeling of people. But what i liked is his talent of being a very good liar.

    As written in story of James Bond “Russian agent knew bond was lying. Lie detector indicated that all words he had been spoken was nothing but lie, but during all false conversation there was not a single moment in which there was change on face expression of Bond ” ………………… When you do, make it perfect.

    Suraj, Bravo for mastering this art, Sad for not using it in proper direction.
