This is my collaboration with Bollywood music director Shantanu Moitra featuring Bonnie Chakraborty.
In 2006, I joined Radio Mirchi, which is one of the premier FM stations in India, as a Radio-Jockey and producer. I was also multi-tasking on different areas like music production, programming, advertisements, jingle production and show concepts. For about three years I hosted music based shows on radio, interacting with musicians from various backgrounds from India and abroad. I also hosted and produced an infotainment show about South Indian folk music, dealing with ancient folk forms and showcasing musicians performing those styles live on-air.
This is my most recent radio project where I play a delusional news reporter called Nuisance Ganesh, who thinks he is the smartest soul around, covering the most unnecessary events in the history of journalism.
