Q : Hi Rohit, First things first, (Welcome to City 1016) Tell us how old are you and how long have you been in Dubai?
A : Shukriyaaaaa! I am 23 years old and I have been in Dubai since the past 21 years, when you could go from Dubai to Ajman thrice in a day.
Q: School school? College college?
A : I did my whole schooling from ‘The Indian High School, Dubai’, followed by a course in Chartered Accountancy which I left in a year . Later, I pursued my bachelors in Amity University Dubai then followed by Masters in Marketing in Malaysia.
Q : When did you realise radio was something you wanted to get into?
A : This is totally weird but I realized it when I was at my barber’s and was frowning. Suddenly he stops and says ‘Please smile, I’m not cutting your neck’. This made me realize if I was in his place i would’ve never said that but if I haven’t had seen a person face to face I would’ve seriously passed a comment.
Leading to this my passion for Events, fashion and media drove me more into this field. It’s all fun from the outside but there’s a lot of hard work that goes in behind. This passion drove me in interning at other radio stations and media companies. As soon as I came back pursuing my masters I applied on the 1016 website and wallah I got In.
Q: Like Movies? What are the last 3 movies you loved?
A:I am a huge Bollywood goon. Even though I am a second day third show person, I watch all the movies. I’ve watched ‘Mela‘ 13 times in the theatre.
Last three movies I loved – Pink, Neerja and Kapoor and Sons
Q: What are the last 3 songs you loved so much, you couldn’t stop singing?
A: 70% of my playlist are coke studio songs and unplugged songs…
Paar Chana de – Noori and Shilpa Rao
Aaj Rung – Amjad Sabri and Rahat
Kaala Chashma – enough that I do the hook step every time it plays.
