Popular VJ Nikhil Chinapa has replaced Karan Kundra in the upcoming season of Roadies, after a video surfaced online where the TV actor was seen slapping a contestant. Reportedly, Karan got aggressive with two contestants during the auditions of “Roadies Rising” and slapped one of them after he said he had once slapped his sister.

However, according to the sources Nikhil has stepped in the shoes of Karan due to clash in schedule and not because of any other issue. “Nikhil is being roped in to take Karan’s place on ‘Roadies Rising’ due to clash in schedules of the journey shoot and Karan’s other prior commitments,” sources close to the channel told PTI.

"When Karan was on the off-site in Los Angeles with the team, he spoke about having to give the 'Roadies' journey a miss this year due to some other engagements that he had to honour," the source added.

Nikhil, who has judged some seasons of the adventure-reality show, will now join as one of the gang leader on Roadies which also features Rannvijay Singha, Neha Dhupia, Prince Narula and off-spinner Harbhajan Singh.
