The Serious Qs!
- How did you start your radio career?
Initially working at our sister station Sanskar Radio, a station very close to my heart, where I developed my skills of DJ presentation on a live broadcasting radio station, this put me in good stead for a role on Sabras.
- What can listeners expect from your radio show?
A variety, of classical romantic through to new energetic Bollywood tracks. My listeners are the most important part of my show, they simply need to request and I play it for them. This is what makes my show work, and why it is so popular with our listeners.
- What’s the one thing that drives you in making your show better than the show before?
I strive to make my show different to the previous one, so that my listeners never feel bored. The challenge of discovering that unique track from a vast supply of asian beats provides me with the drive to deliver a top class show each time.
- What has been the most memorable moment for you working at Sabras Radio?
I have a diverse cohort of listener on my show, however, one particular little sweet heart stole my show one day. A very cute little two and half year old requested a classic track “Kala Kala chashma” which for his age was so adorable. He certainly will be able to teach us all a thing or two on how to impress the other half.
- If you were to name one person for giving you the push to where you are now in life, who would that be?
For me this is an easy answer - there is only one person that comes to mind, and that would be my beautiful mother. She is my rock in life, the one who has always given me the encouragement to achieve my dreams and the confidence to further myself in life, even when life may seem difficult, she is the one that shows me how to omit any barriers.
