Fame is a devil, art is an angel: Raghav Juyal
One of the most popular dance reality shows Dance Plus is back with its third season with triple energy and amazing concept, and with its return our excitement has soared higher.
Like the past two seasons, this year too, the reality show will witness Remo D’souza as the Super judge and Shakti Mohan, Dharmesh Yelande, Punit Pathak as the mentors and Raghav Juyal as the host of the show.
In a candid chat with Tellychakkar.com, Raghav Juyal opens up on the details of the season and how he landed the offer of hosting the show.
He said, “It’s the third season of the show and everything is one level up this time, be it talent or the concept of hosting. This time I’m trying something new with hosting. It’ll be set up like a theatre and there will be full on fun and entertainment. I can’t reveal much but yes viewers will definitely enjoy it.”
Speaking about the challenges of this season, he said, “This season Remo sir has introduced a new concept of bringing international crew to our stage and pit a competition with the freshers, so yes, challenges have increased for the mentors.”
When asked how he feels about doing a show with his mentor Remo, he said, “I feel very good. This is the third season we’re doing and now we have become like a family. Shooting doesn’t seem scripted, it feels very real. Our off screen bonding is the reason behind our onscreen fun. Everything that we say and do is natural.”
So, how he bagged the offer of hosting the show? He laughed and said, “I had never planned about getting into hosting. Ranjeet sir who is the producer of the show called me up one day and said that you have to do a show. I said, I won’t do judging and all because I find it very boring so he suggested me to do hosting, and that’s how I got into it. Then I hosted Golden Petal Awards with Karan sir and Rising star.”
Also called Crockroax by his fans, Raghav is one talented lad. He has done dancing, choreography, acting and now hosting. When we quizzed him what’s next on his cards, he quipped, “I haven’t planned anything. I want to tryeverything which is possible, from driving Uber to doing anything. I just don’t want to stop. I want to explore my talents and creativity.”
When asked what happens to those who despite a win cannot rise to fame, he opined, “I’ll just say one thing, once you get fame don’t start enjoying it, because fame is temporary. If you don’t work harder after rising to fame, it will vanish very soon. I always say to people, fame is a devil, art is an angel. Fame will go, but art will always be there.”
Talking about his upcoming projects, the talented dancer said, “Next add in my acting career is a film titled ‘Nawabzaade’ and I’ve also shot for pilot of a series which I can’t reveal right now. I would also like to do theatre some day if I get enough time.”
