After weeks of gruelling tasks conducted in some of India’s historical cities, Mtv Roadies Rising found its winner in Shweta Mehta. The girl from Fatehbad, Haryana has many qualifications. She is an IT engineer and a body-builder winning championships at an international level. Today, she is home to watch the finale with her parents and says this win is for him. In an EXCLUSIVE chat with Bollywood Life, she said, “From what I recollect,I saw it from season five. I remember the fight that Ashutosh Kaushik got into. That was nine seasons back. After that, I did not get that much time for TV as I was working on myself.” Not many know but Shweta Mehta won the Jerai Classic Body Building Competition in 2015, where she flaunted her body in a bikini.
She tells us, “I was working in the IT sector when I gave my auditions three years ago for Roadies. That time I was working in the IT sector and thought I could manage both effectively. I have been rejected thrice but I did not give up. This is my fourth attempt.” She is physically strong and lifted up mentor Harbhajan Singh on her shoulders, which stunned everyone. “Fitness is not the only criteria to win Roadies. I did not showcase my physical strength to the fullest. I made sure I entertained everyone, danced, etc. In Roadies, you need to be averagely decent in everything than be excellent in one thing. Yes, my strength helped me in the semi-finale, which was quite intense,” she says.
Shweta says she was confident about having Neha Dhupia as her mentor. She admits that choosing between Rannvijay Singha and Neha was a tough ask but she chose Neha as she felt she would get more opportunities to prove herself. “In Roadies, they always put the guys for the toughest tasks but I also did some intense tasks,” she says.
The tough lass sees herself participating in other sports based reality shows but is not one for daily soaps. “I don’t want to do anything that impacts my career in fitness. Daily soaps have hectic acting schedules,” she states. Today, she is happily watching the show with her family in Fatehabad. “I saw my hoardings in the city and I am thrilled. Some people criticised my parents after seeing me in fitness competitions. They are proud parents today,” she signs off. Stay tuned to Bollywood Life for more scoop and updates…
