New Delhi | Jagran Entertainment Desk: Dance reality show Dance Deewane 3's host Raghav Juyal landed in a controversy after his clip introducing an Assamese contestant with an alleged racist monologue goes viral. The dancer used words like momo, Chinese and even tried to speak in the language before calling the Assamese girl on stage. 

The whole incident drew a lot of flak from netizens online and even attracted the attention of the Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma who tweeted against the same. He wrote, "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."

 

After loads of backlash, Raghav decided to share a clarification, therefore, he took to his official social media handle to post a video. He said, "It's unfair and not good for my mental health to see this short clip without the right context. When this contestant came to the show, she announced that she had a talent of speaking Chinese. My performance was based on that."
