A fluent person is someone that can give you a lot many topics to discuss over a cup of coffee. But, an individual who is not only good enough in communication as well entertaining is definitely loved by all. This thought of RJ cum Anchor Himanshu underlies his personality. Meeting with Himanshu in an event turnaround quite a way exciting for UdaipurBlog team because we saw a person filled with a lot of energy, confidence, and positivity to host a show. It’s not just only work for him but a chance to break all the limits of making people happy.
After meeting him, some questions came to our mind, and we decided to have a chat with him regarding his passion that drove him to the success that he always wished to have.
How did you step into the field of RJing and who was your inspiration?
-“It was entirely unintentional. I went for my friend’s audition, and even I ended up giving the audition. I think the day was in my favor, so the combo of god’s blessing & confidence made possible my selection for the new ride of life. I had heard one radio station only once before my audition that too for a couple of minutes only. I didn’t even know that these people are known as Radio Jockeys, but whatever I heard was entertaining & was enough to get my mind racing. So I would say it was an inspiring moment rather than an inspiring person.”
After being a radio jockey, now you are a host and a famous anchor. So, what did you enjoy more – Your previous field or the current one?
-“Both are the different parts of one thing called entertainment. Both are enjoyable to me, but the fact is that I am enjoying my present because of my past. Radio gave me an identity, the celebrity tag. While giving an interview for a marketing company, nobody is going to ask you for your 12th result or if you are holding an MBA degree in your hand, but they will ask about your experience. Radio is an MBA degree for me in the anchoring field.”
What is your family and educational background?
-“I come from a business class family and because of that my education was all about numbers i.e. Commerce, and I became a certified master in that.”
What do you love about your hometown?
-“I am proud to call myself an Udaipurite. The city itself tempts people to live in it, The city that has heroic History, Beauty, Peace, Fashion, Business, Culture, Art, Value, Life, Nature, Architecture, Living standard, Connectivity and a lot more. A perfect city to be in and a perfect city to grow.”
What does anchoring mean to you?
-“It’s my LIFELINE. I always dreamt of wearing classy clothes and to live a glamorous life. Anchoring along with completing this dream of mine also got me attention, fame and respect with the plus point of me being paid in BIG numbers.”
Who are the remarkable people with whom you have worked till date?
-“I interviewed John Abraham for the very first time, and the list has been moving forward since then. I recently got the opportunity to host a show for Amitabh Bachchan. Some commercial shows I enjoyed were for Bindaas, MTV, Star One, Zee Q, etc.”
Which is the moment of your life that you admire the most and which helped you reach heights?
-“Whenever someone shows blind faith in me, although it’s pressurizing, I feel responsible then. I respect the trust of the person, and it is the pressure and responsibility which took me to heights along with perfection.”
If someone wants to be in your field, what steps he/she should take to work as an RJ and anchor?
-“Keeping all the technical dos/don’t & theoretical knowledge aside, a single thing I have observed is happiness. For me, it is a must have. You can’t make someone happy with an unhappy mood. So, stay happy and you will experience the best of this field.”
After 5 years, where do you see yourself?
-“Har patang ko pata hai ki ant uska kachre mein hi hai, Lekin uss se pehle aasman na chhua toh kya kiya… – Even I want to touch the sky and want to stay there till the end of history. I don’t know what I will be doing 5 years down the line, but I am enjoying my flying now.”
What is your inspirational idea for the youngsters, who are already into the communication field?
-Success has just one calculation formula. Stop thinking about limits and start thinking about the possibilities. Don’t choose this profession for money or fame; they will come without fail if you are happy with what you do. If you want to have something unusual, then you have to do something unusual. Until then don’t forget that the last key of the bunch can also unlock the door so don’t give up. Let your work speak, because I think Pehchaan se mila kaam thode time k liye rehta hai but kaam se mili pehchaan hamesha ke liye.
Himanshu, I guess people should learn to be thoughtful and cheerful enough if they are thinking to take a chance in your field.
