Being one of the few reality shows that attracted the classes and the masses, Roadies had to take the baton forward. A month or so before the start of their new season, they came up with the Roadies Cheat Code, a DVD that claims to let you ‘cheat’ your way to the show.

Priced at Rs 599, the DVD has cues, case studies and instructions by none other than Raghu Ram, the brain behind Roadies. The DVD has fared decently and has received good response from even smaller cities with SMS and online orders. This is just your thing, in case you haven’t got your fill of watching hilarious scenes from previous auditions online.

Here are some handpicked points that Raghu Ram and the DVD suggest to help get you through.

* Take your form seriously: Filling in your form is your first step towards becoming a Roadie and you should take it very seriously. If you don’t fill your form properly there are chances of you not being selected since only contestants with interesting forms go ahead.

* Speak in Hindi: It’s a Hindi show, so leave your accents at home.

* Prepare for the entertainment round: Since everyone knows that there is an entertainment round in the auditions for sure, you should prepare for it. Don’t bore the judges and the janta by doing an act last minute.

* No messing with the crew: Don’t take pangas with the crew; it’s not the right way to get noticed.

* Be yourself.
