The latest episode of the dance-reality show Dance+ 6 saw Olympic gold medalist and javelin thrower Neeraj Chopra appearing as the special guest. The athlete has become a popular face in the entertainment industry after winning the gold medal for India at Tokyo Olympic Games. Now, he was seen playing cupid between captain Shakti Mohan and host Raghav Juyal.
It all happened after Shakti asked Neeraj to propose to her and show Raghav how it is done. While the star athlete seemed hesitant and praised Raghav. Shakti cut him off and said, “Aise thodi na propose karte hai? Haath pakadte hai (Is this the way to propose? You should hold my hand).”
On being asked to think of Shakti’s hand like a javelin and hold it, Neeraj quipped, “Phir woh phenkne wala ho jayega (Then I will be inclined to throw it).” Beginning his mock-proposal, Neeraj told Shakti that javelin is the most important thing to him.
“Ab meri life mein sabse zyada important javelin ho jayega na (Now, javelin will be the most important thing in my life too),” she replied.
Neeraj blushed and continued his attempt to play Cupid between Shakti and Raghav. Raghav having one-sided feelings for Shakti is one of the long-running gags of Dance+.
Praising Raghav, Neeraj said, “Shakti ji, Raghav bhai bohot achche ladke hai, itni comedy karte hai, itna achcha dance karte hai, itne funny hai... Please aap unse baat kar lo (Shakti, Raghav is a great guy. He is so funny, does comedy so well and is such a good dancer… Please talk to him).”
For the uninitiated, Star javelin thrower Neeraj Chopra created history by becoming the first India to win gold medal in track and field category at the recently concluded Tokyo Olympics.
