Any one who claims to be the youth of India need no introduction to Raghu Ram aka MTV Roadies Raghu.
Having said that many people are dubious on his personal life (eg. From where did he come..) And here I present a quick fact file of Raghu in an attempt to clear those qualms.
- Born on 6th June 1973 in Machilipatnam, Andhra Pradesh and brought up in New Delhi.
- Completed his studies at Woodstock school, Mussoorie and was employed first by MTV England.
- Currently he is the senior supervising producer at MTV India and the executive producer of the show MTV Roadies.
- Lives in Andheri, Mumbai with his wife Sugandha garg, who featured in the film Jaane tu ya Jaane naa.
The idea of MTV Roadies in MTV India was given by Raghu which was accepted as a test project. After a few negative talks about the show some features were changed and the show went on air the same year. It remained the most watched MTV show for the last three seasons of MTV Roadies.
The auditions of the sixth season of Roadies came in as a surprise to everyone when Rajiv, the twin brother of Raghu made an entry into the show.
Though people know Raghu as a harsh commenter, stubborn person he is a completely different person off the show. He gives great respect to Women and I still remember in one of the audition episode of the Hell Down Under series when he says “I can never respect someone who doesn’t have respect towards women, never”.
That says it all about Raghu.
And I must admit that I’m seeing Raghu a lot in TV these days, in news channels debates, airtel digital TV advertisements etc. Good going Raghu.
