1. Your profile says that you are an anchor, actor and a voice-over artist. That’s quite versatile. Tell us more about your aptitude for these realms.
I have been in the field of anchoring since a very young age and I have noticed that all these 3 categories go hand in hand. I started working as an anchor since 2007. Acting just came along with it. I happened to try my hand at few short films and things worked for me. And for voice-over artist, well, there are a lot of opportunities that come to you when you are an anchor. A lot of brands approached me when they saw me live during events and that is how it started. I lent my voice to their companies for TV commercials and promotional vidoes. They liked it and the audience loved it. So till now, I have anchored 800+ live and televised shows in 20+ cities of India and 15+ countries of the world. Moreover, I have acted in 7 short films and done 9 voice-overs.


2. What has been the best moment in your career, so far?
When you love what you do, you cannot pick up one moment as the best moment in your journey because I believe my journey has just begun and there is a lot more to do and achieve. So it is really difficult to pick up one moment because there are multiple moments which I would call as the “best moments” in what I am doing. Two such moments I would like to share:
(i) Anchoring is all about striking the right chord with your audience. After the event, people come up to you to thank, congratulate, take selfies, ask Twitter handle etc. Recently when I did an event for Mercedes Benz, their MD-CEO came up to me after the event and said “Thank you so much for doing such a great job and keeping the audience engaged all the time. Thanks for pumping in all the energy.” It was not at all expected from a senior and experienced professional like him!
(ii) When the Kannada Superstar Kiccha Sudeep congratulated me for my anchoring for an event of TATA Sky, where both of us had met.
These are the little bits that keep you happy about the work you do and thus it is not just one moment that defines it


3. Anchoring segment witnesses a lot of celebrities coming in these days. Do you view them as competition?
There are different types of events that happen and every event has its own set of requirements. So there is scope for everybody to perform. I do not believe anyone is a competiton to me except ‘I, me and myself’ because I want to outperform myself everytime and that is the biggest competition in itself.


4. Are you open to working in television shows?
I have been a part of a few television shows for South Indian channels and it has been a great experience. I am ofcourse open to working in television shows in the future, especially those having travelling focus because I love exploring new destinations and understanding new cultures of India and the globe. So yes, I will definitely take up something if it comes in my way.


5. Who is your role model when it comes to being an anchor/actor?
Oprah Winfrey, Ellen DeGeneres, Shah Rukh Khan and Shahid Kapoor. They all are amazing in what they do and all the readers out here are aware of their expertise
