Neha Dhupia replaces Esha Deol as MTV ‘Roadies X3’ judge


Neha Dhupia replaces the ‘Dhoom’ actress Esha Deol as the new judge of MTV reality show, ‘Roadies X3’. It is learnt that Esha walked out of the show due to monetary issue.

35-year-old Neha Dhupia said that she is excited to be a part of the show. "To influence youth and to be influenced by them is what excited me to take up the show. And coming from an army background, I think I've got a thing or two to add to its action aspect. I want to propagate the idea of being yourself, having faith and never giving up on your dreams," Neha said in a statement.

Meanwhile, Esha's mother and veteran actor turned politician Hema Malini thanked MTV for giving her daughter an opportunity to judge the reality show on microblogging site Twitter:

#Thank you MTV for selecting Esha as ur 1st female judge! She had a ball doing the prog & being part of ur family. We loved watching it too!

However, Esha has earned the credit of becoming first judge of the show. since its inception, male judges mainly occupied the judge seats.
