Dance Deewane 3 host Raghav Juyal REACTS as netizens slam him for ‘racist’ remark on Northeast contestant
Dance Deewane 3 host and Any Body Can Dance star Raghav Juyal was at the receiving end due to his recent stint in the dance reality show. Well, recently a video of him from the dance show went viral and netizens called him for being a racist. Apparently, people interpreted that Raghav is being racist towards a contestant who hails from Guwahati, Assam. That’s not it, even the chief minister of Assam slammed Raghav and called it a shameful and unacceptable act. Seeing so much hue and cry on social media, the choreographer took to his Instagram account and dropped a video message, clarifying that the matter is blown out of proportion.
In the video message, Raghav is heard saying that the clip has been highly edited and half-truth has been shown in the viral video while asking people to watch the entire episode first before judging him. Moreover, he narrated what exactly had happened during the episode and clarified that he had no intention to hurt people’s sentiments. He mentioned that judges asked the Northeast contestant her favourite thing other than dancing, then she mentioned that she knows how to speak in Mandarin and this amazed the judges – Madhuri Dixit, Dharmesh and Tusshar Kalia.
It has come to my notice that a popular reality show host has used racist rhetoric against a young participant from Guwahati. This is shameful and totally unacceptable. Racism has no place in our country and we should all condem it unequivocally.

The judges even asked her to speak in Mandarin but she speaks gibberish, to add little Entertainment to it, even Raghav starts speaking in gibberish with her.
