Tell Us About Your Journey:
My first and only ‘job’ till date has been as a Zoology Lecturer, when soon after being Gold Medallist in Post graduation, I cleared a National Level Exam UGC NET In Life Sciences.I faced the Commission, qualified an Interview and was appointed on a Govt. Permanent Post at an age of 22 years in a Degree PG College in Delhi NCR. I then started teaching college students of my age group and was often confused as a student only. I qualified JRF and was supposed to leave for US to become a Research Scientist.
I realised that I was not born to do something so conventional and have to unleash my untapped skills and hidden aspiration to become a Bollywood Star
I finally moved to Mumbai, after convincing my parents that my high Education and Classical training in Music and dance will bring Innovative ideas in my Live Gigs and Scripted Entertainment Concept Designing. So, today when my clients and agencies negotiate over my performance fee, I always tell them I’m here for Passion more than Business so let’s talk Work and Creativity to Rock Together, Creating Value and Memories for all. That’s how i started my career as an MC and then scaled to Singer Performer with Innovative Live Act to a Show Director now for many MICE Companies providing them Show Concept, Script and Packaging with a back up artist team and celebs too at times.
What are the services you offer?
I’m known for my Versatile Singing in various Music Genre from Bollywood, Amalgamated Retro And Sufi Numbers but also for my Unique Innovative Act as India’s Only Female LED Interactive Live Performer. I also act as Host/Anchor Formal and Informal Events along with Writing Scripts. I’ve also done a couple of Music Videos, Short Films, Brand Endorsements and Singles.
Your First Project
Coming from a Doctors Family, My First Project Was From A Relative To Host A Mega 02 Days Conference For APICON 2009 in Greater Noida for 5000 Physicians, as he was the Organising Secretary of the Committee. Since I recently moved to Mumbai then from Delhi, he asked for my help not only to coordinate celebs but also conceptualize the entertainment elements of the gala evening apart from the opening the show with my singing performance, setting up the momentum of the evening. And That Was The Beginning Of Being The Master Of The Show especially for Conference Organisers and MICE agents.
