Raghu Ram (born 15 April 1975) is senior supervising producer at MTV India and the executive producer of reality television shows MTV Roadies and MTV Splitsvilla

Raghu was born an identical-twin in Machilipatnam, Andhra Pradesh, India, and raised in Delhi, India, along with his twin brother, Rajeev Lakshman. He studied at the Woodstock School in Landour, Uttarakhand, with his brother Rajeev. They later attended the University of Delhi in Delhi. In the first year, both were students of Deshbandhu College, but in the second year, they joined Sri Venkateswara College.

Raghu started at MTV India supervising shows including MTV Love Line with Malaika Arora Khan and Cyrus Broacha, video jockeys (VJ)s, and also lead MTV Select and the first few seasons of MTV Super Select with VJ Nikhil Chinapa. His idea of MTV Roadies was accepted as an experimental project by MTV in 2000. The show was tentatively entitled MTV: Find The Road, and was initially met with skepticism by the senior producers of the channel. Raghu has continuously been in controversies about his style of words, which mostly are street level profanities[citation needed]. He has also been recently nominated for Best Singer award in Gima Awards 2012 for his song Manmani. Raghu Ram is married to actress Sugandha Garg, who played minor roles in Hindi films Jaane Tu... Ya Jaane Na, Tere Bin Laden and My Name Is Khan.[1]

Raghu, judge of MTV Roadies, was rejected when he was sitting on the other side in the first season of the singing reality show Indian Idol .[2] On April 22, 2011, a group of Akhila Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) activists in Pune tried to physically assault the 3 judges(Raghu, Rannvijay, Rajeev) of the Roadies show and blackened their faces in protest against the behaviour and foul language being used in their show. Raghu retired from MTV Roadies after Season 10.
