"Never gave up on my dancing skills" – Rapper Raftaar

Rapper Raftaar, who will next be seen shaking a leg in the upcoming season of dance reality show Jhalak Dikhhla Jaa, says people can expect a “heavy dose” of entertainment from him as he never gave up his dancing skills while focusing on music career.


Raftaar, whose real name is Dilin Nair, came into limelight with his 2012 hit single Bottle. He later went on to make songs like Tamanche Pe Disco,Whistle Baja and Desi Hip Hop.

“I began my career with dancing as a contestant on ‘Dance India Dance’. Apart from singing, I believe you need to have other skills to be a well-endowed stage performer. So, while I pursued singing, I never gave up perfecting my dancing skills,”

Raftaar said in a statement.

Besides Raftaar, the Indian version of the internationally acclaimed reality show Dancing with the Stars, to be aired on Colors, will also feature Shamita Shetty, Vivian Dsena, Radhika Madan, Kavita Kaushik, Sanaya Irani, Deepika Samson, Ashish Chowdhry, Mohit Malik, Scarlett Mellish Wilson and Faisal Khan.
