After bringing home the laurels, the third rank holder of Dance India Dance (DID) season 3, Dehradun lad, Raghav Juyal, is all set to play his second innings as a mentor in DID Little Master Season 2. His brilliant performance at the Grand Finale captivated the entire country along with the mentor judges of the show. He might not have been the winner of the show but Raghav was the only one to receive a standing ovation from the judges and Bollywood star Anil Kapoor. He has been lavished with high praise from the judges, who have called him ‘king’ and a ‘paisa vasool entertainer’. All have high hopes for his bright future.
On a two days visit to his hometown- Dehradun, Raghav shared his experience at DID Season 3 and updated the media about his future plans. Ruing to the lack of dance academy here in Dehradun, Raghav said, "The youth here in Uttarakhand have much potential to come up as artistes and performers but the lack of proper training schools is not letting the talent in them to be exploited to the fullest. I would like to start free dancing workshops in Doon for talented youngsters.” He also shared his plans of starting his own dancing school in Dehradun.
Raghav’s life has changed completely in past few months, a fact that he himself delightfully acknowledges. A self-taught dancer, Raghav also plays football with keen interest and loves to sport a self-designed weird hairdo that makes him not only a dancing but a fashion idol, too.
Right now, his schedule is choc-a-bloc and many offers are pouring in. Raghav has also been offered a Hindi film ‘ABCD’ directed by choreographer-turned-director Remo D'souza but since he was selected as a skipper for DID Lil’ Master Season 2, he had to refuse the film. However, he is quite enthusiastic about working in movies in near future and said that he will surely consider it as an option after finishing off the contract with Zee TV.
Raghav has become a youth icon with youngsters all over the country gleefully imitating his favorite slow motion step, now known as ‘Crock Style’. He calls himself "Croc-Roach," because he says, his dance style is inspired from the slow movement of a crocodile and the swiftness of cockroach.
Youth like Raghav have inspired many others to dream big and follow their hearts. Here’s looking forward to many more Crockroaxz’s emerging from Dehradun and around the country!
