Presents:
Solid Gold Bollywood and Asian Mix.

When to tune in:
Saturday evening and Sunday afternoon.

Career path:
I always had a dream to work in the radio or television industry. I was inspired through a very good doctor friend who practices in the hospital who noticed my voice; thanks to him, many years later, I am still here enjoying every weekend and having fun.

Embarrassing moment:
Once, I was about 7 seconds away from linking up with the news team and said, “it’s six o’ clock and here is the news” at this exact moment in time I sneezed so loudly and my microphone fader was turned up fully, I may have burst a few ear drums and the moment still lives with me now!

Favourite movies:
Family, comedy, political Bagbaan, Houseful, Aandhi and many more.

Favourite artists:
Almost every Asian artist from the 60s and 70s including: Lataji, Rafisaab, Mukeshji, Udit Narayan, Alka Yagnik, Atif Aslan and Shreya Goshal.

5 things I can’t live without:
My music, my mobile, my family including my bird Ziggy (not that kind of ‘bird’), my car and of course, my listeners.

Passion:
To be a driving force behind music through playing all types of music to all types of listeners in the community, keeping them entertained all the time!

A message for my listeners:
I thank you for your support and hope I can brighten your day!
