“Yenjaay maadi man! ”
Voted the ‘Best RJ of the Year’ twice by Indian Radio Forum, little needs to be said of RJ Nethra. She is zest and zeal personified. She is a person who believes in living life to the fullest every moment! Extremely affable and friendly, Nethra believes in completely deviating from the norms and this is what comes across in her show ‘Chow Chow Bath’. Her never say never attitude towards life, fascination for new things, all this teamed with hard work did give out the best of results quite early in her career!
How I got to be an Rj
Luck by chance! Though I was good at hosting shows in college when I was doing my engineering, I never had plans of taking up RJing as a profession. Till one fine day, when I challenged my brother and took part in an RJ Hunt! Life did surprise me and here I am, RJ Nethra!
mantra In Life
Be yourself and never ape others! You might be good when you pretend to be someone else, but you are at your BEST when you are “yourself”!
When I'm not RJ'ing I'm most likely to be...
My all time fav movies are Pursuit of Happiness, Hurt Locker and Dilwale Dulhaniya Lejayenge!
Most embarrassing RJ moment
This happened when I was in Class 10! It’s been really long but the memory and the embarrassment still remains fresh in my mind. Since we were in our Class 10, we had a Farewell Party organized for which I had decided to perform with our regular dance troupe. It was time for us to enter the stage and song also kicked in. We made a grand entry on the stage amidst all the hooting and whistling when suddenly the song quality started deteriorating and finally stopped! We were at the middle of the stage only to realize the cassette which we had, had got conked coz of the way it was manhandled while practicing! Gosh! What an embarrassing end to our performance!
Most fulfilling RJ moment
When I won “BEST RJ OF THE YEAR 2012” for the second time by the INDIA RADIO FORUM. This came after my previous win of the same title in the year 2010! Both the awards have been really dear to me, post which I cherish all the hard work and tough times that went behind!
