Priyanka Lalwani: Hosting A Show Has A Special Place In My Heart
Jamai Raja actress Priyanka Lalwani has made a mark in recent times as a host. The pretty lady opens up about this new phase of her life and career.
Jamai Raja actress Priyanka Lalwani enjoys acting but says that being on stage and hosting a show have a special place in her heart. From corporate events to wedding events to fashion shows to interviews, you name it and she has probably done it all. Schwarzkopf, Lakme, LG, Samsung, Britannia and Godrej are some of the known brands she has worked with.
Asked which one she prefers between anchoring or acting, she said that it’s like asking a parent to choose between their kids who is your favourite. She loves both because while she is on stage, she gets to be herself and she can do her own thing. When she is in front of the camera, she gets to be the character that she is playing, so both have their own charm. Having said that, being on stage and hosting a show has a special place in her heart.
The Spotlight 2 actress didn’t take any formal training in anchoring. In her early modelling days, she was offered to host a sangeet event and she was like why not. She remembers taking her mom along with her. Since then there was no looking back. But it does require some different skills, the most important is that one has to be impromptu, unlike acting where a script is given. There are no retakes in anchoring, she advices.
Over the years, she has learnt that it’s very important to be patient and not rush through things when she is speaking on stage. Sometimes people end up having deadlines and they have to cover a certain topic in the duration that is provided, so they have to make sure that what they are trying to convey, the audience is able to grasp it. She suggests others to be prepared with pointers and do their homework for the event they are hosting. Always have backup content so people can use it if need be. They should be calm and always have a smile on, she suggests.
Since the time she was a kid, she used to really look up to Vishal Malhotra and never missed any of his shows on Disney. She has really admired Ambika Anand. She has grown up watching her on NDTV Good Times. She wanted to do what she did. She wanted to travel and do shows as she did. And some way or the other, she is doing that. Apart from them, she really admires Ellen DeGeneres, Jimmy Fallon, Maniesh Paul and Raghav Juyal.
We are super excited to be a part of a show hosted by her. What about you, folks? Share your thoughts with us in the comments below.
