After two profitable street journeys with HistoryTV18, Rocky and Mayur are setting out on one other street journey. This time, India’s unstoppable ‘highwaymen’ are heading East, from Delhi to Kolkata throughout India’s heartland. Follow their adventures from February 24 to March 10 on HistoryTV18’s and Rocky & Mayur’s social media handles.
HistoryTV18’s #RoadTrippinWithRnM is a singular journey vlogging collection with its genesis within the second half of 2020 when lockdown guidelines began to ease. Now in its third season, the collection sees Rocky and Mayur cataloguing their journeys in real-time and sharing them on social media by means of vlogs, images, and reels.
In the primary leg of their journey, the duo will hit the open street at Delhi, and head south in direction of Gwalior, Madhya Pradesh. Their route will take them by means of the fascinating Chambal River Sanctuary and the traditional metropolis of temples, Orchha. In Uttar Pradesh, the viewers will expertise the real ‘lakhnawi andaaz’ and ‘tehzeeb’, Lucknow’s old-world tradition of courtesy and style. Their journey may also take them by means of different huge and small cities of Jharkhand, Bihar, and West Bengal.
Rocky and Mayur are ecstatic on the thought of being again on the street once more. The journey begins on the twenty fourth of February, and Rocky exclaims that he “can’t wait to get out on the highway again! We’ll be driving through four states before reaching West Bengal. And with more time on the road, we can promise loads of exciting, out-of-the-box experiences this time around. I expect the food and culture to change every hundred or so kilometres.”
Meanwhile, Mayur can’t wait to sink his tooth into the fabulous meals from the gajjak of Morena and the Malai ki Gilori in Lucknow to the tribal delicacies of Jharkhand. “The food, yes! But I’m equally excited about the thrill of thinking fast on our feet to deal with all that we’ll encounter this time around. I’m really looking forward to the diversity of cultures, colours, and flavours as we drive from Delhi to West Bengal,” he says.
Arun Thapar, President – Content & Communication, A+E Networks | TV18, attributes the success of the primary two seasons of #RoadTrippinWithRnM to “being in synch with the times and focusing on emotions and interests that are universal and timeless – friendship, optimism, and the appeal of food, travel, and new experiences.”
Decoding the collection’ success, he says, “The pandemic has given us all a new perspective. It’s reminded people around the world of the importance of life’s simple joys, the comfort of companionship and the true value of relationships, experiences, and making memories. You can’t go wrong with an authentic bromance, the open road, and new adventures around every bend! Rocky and Mayur are genuine travellers and foodies and the best at what they do. Combine that with the endless wonder of incredible India – its colour, diversity, and spirit – and you have a winner.”
