That was just something that I perfected without realising that it would become a sensation overnight,” says Raghav Juyal modestly, with a smile, as we chat about him being the ‘King of Slow Motion,’ and his rendition of his now-famous slow motion moves on camera. The actor dancer from Dehradun has earned the moniker of ‘Crockroaxz’ because his slow motion moves on stage bring in the power of a crocodile along with the stealthiness of a cockroach. No kidding! One look at the master-dancer and he has you gasping, stupified, with every limb articulated perfectly, smoothly.
“I like to take risks in life, to explore newer areas and challenge myself consistently,” he says. Raghav starred in the dance blockbuster ABCD 2 that starrred Varun Dhawan and Shraddha Kapoor. “That role was an extension of my real self,” he confesses, waving aside his limpid moves very casually. Raghav is busy these days shooting for the Varun Dhawan starrer Street Dancer that gets ready to unspool in January 2020. What has him super excited though, is his ongoing schedule of his upcoming film in Bhot Hua Samman, where he is cast along with stalwarts including Ram Kapoor and Sanjay Misra.
A compulsive, non conformist wordsmith. A sybaritic connoisseur of all 'tis epicurean. An insatiable sybarite. An incurable book-chomper. For me, there is nothing more powerful than the excitement of shaping the written word. I simply live to write.
