Mumbai, Jun 28: Chandigarh-based model Prince Narula, who won the title of the ultimate “roadie” in the 12th season of the show after beating 21 contestants, wants to become an action hero like Akshay Kumar. Prince, 24, said he does not want to shed his tough image if he tried his luck in Bollywood. “‘MTV Roadies’ is a key to showbiz. I want to be a Bollywood action hero like Akshay Kumar. I am a very strong guy and I don’t think I will shed this image ever. If I get any role to show my strength then I will definitely go for it,” Prince told PTI.

The Mr Punjab runner up was pitted against his fellow gang member Gurmeet in the nail-biting finale of the MTV show in Kathmandu.
It was judged by Rannvijay Singh, Karan Kundra, Esha Doel and boxer Vijender Singh. It was the first time the reality show was shot without the creators of “Roadies” Raghu Ram and Rajiv Laxman.

“Winning the show was a lifetime achievement for me. I had the best experience of life on the show. Winning the ‘roadie’ title is a huge respect. I made few good friends on the show and Gurmeet is one of them. He is like my brother,” he said. Prince won a cash prize of Rs five lakh and high-end bike, which he gifted to his good friend Gurmeet.

The model, who was in Rannvijay’s group, said the finale saw the toughest stunt of the show, which began with auditions in December last year.
“Finale was very tough. It was an amalgamation of all the tasks we did in this season. There were many stages to it. I got hurt also while crossing one of those stages. The whole set-up of the finale task looked challenging,” he said.

Prince will be next seen in the channel’s popular dating show “MTV Splitsvilla and he is quite excited about the show. “I am liking my stints in reality shows because I am being able to show my real side to the world. In ‘Splitsvilla’, I will show the caring and emotional side of me because I respect women and can’t tolerate misbehaviour with them. During tasks, you will get to see my tough side too.” Asked what are the qualities he is looking for in his partner, Prince said, “She should be loving and caring towards me and my parents. She should be loyal and pretty too.”
