“I am a passionate host who grew up in Karur, a small town in Tamil Nadu. Due to financial crises, I had to complete my diploma in Karur and joined engineering in the mechanical department as a lateral entry. But deep down, I knew my passion was acting and performing.
In my second year of college, I participated in a couple of short films, but unfortunately, none were released. Despite this setback, I didn’t let it discourage me and continued to work on my craft. It was in my final year when I got a chance to host a cultural event, and to my surprise, everyone loved my performance, timely counters, and presence of mind. It was a turning point for me, and I took it as a sign to pursue my passion for acting and performing.
Any anchor from Tamil Nadu would point to Actor Sivakarthikeyan being their role model, just like me. I was always a fan of Siva Anna, and it was a dream to work with him. Unfortunately, due to some unforeseen circumstances, I missed out on the opportunity to work with him.
I started working hard on my talent of hosting a show seriously. I landed a job in a media house, but being a beginner, I was only paid a little. I used to do 8 to 9 interviews per day, putting in all my efforts to showcase my skills for more than a few months. Initially, my family was sceptical about my decision of being a part of the media industry. But with my wife’s support, I was able to focus on my goal and work hard to achieve my dream.
One fine day, Durga Akka (wife of Gopinath Anna) noticed my message of passion and recommended me to become a part of Little Talks Media in 2018. With my proven skills, Anna handed over an opportunity to become a lead along with a huge task with the liberty to express my ideas.
Without disappointing his trust in me, in less than 2 years’ time, I led a team of 8 and drove 2M+ subscribers to our channel.
There were times when I regretted performing at my best to be alongside Siva Anna. But little did I know that fate had something else in store for me. Six months later, I got an opportunity to interview Siva Anna. It was a huge destiny hit for me, and I couldn’t be more grateful for the chance to meet and interview my inspiration.
It was an incredible experience to talk to Siva Anna and learn from his journey. I felt even more motivated and inspired to work hard towards my goals, and I knew that someday, I would make it to where Siva Anna is today.
Currently, I am the Chief Executive Head, Program Producer, and Anchor at Little Talks Media, and it’s been more than 5 years since I started this incredible journey.”
