Today, let's take a note of Raghav's strugglesome yet interesting journey from the beginning, way before his stardom's days...  

Raghav Juyyal hails from Dehradun (Uttarakhand). He was born to a Garhwali Brahmin family on 10th July, 1991. He completed both his schooling and graduation (in B.Com from DAV College Dehradun) from there itself.

For the unversed, Raghav first participated in another popular reality show named Chak Dhoom Dhoom and featured as a crew-dancer in Saurav Benjwal's dance crew 'D-Maniex'.

In 2012, Raghav auditioned in Delhi for Dance India Dance 3. Raghav earned insane popularity with his audition as his video went viral on YouTube. Owing to his mesmerising solo performance, he won his ticket for the 'Mumbai Mega audition'. However, as he was not professionally trained by anyone prior to coming on the show,  Raghav showcased a new dance-style that could not impress the judges enough, Hence, he could not make it to the 'Top 18' after the mega auditions were through.

However, the impact of his audition's video on YouTube on the million viewers incurred a miracle in Raghav's future career. Later on, on public demand, the show's 'Grand Master' Mithun Chakraborty made an exception in the format by reintroducing him on the show as his 'Trump Card' in the Wild Card round. Hence, Raghav found his way back to the competition and left an inevitable impression on the show's judges, other contestants and it's innumerable viewers.
