Home Chennai Earning his Stripes

    When you are accepted by the listeners, there’s no turning back for a presenter. It’s up and away from there onwards. But when you are given a pat on the back by the station you work for, it’s a different feeling altogether. I chatted with Radio Mirchi’s Ajai Titus to find out more about him being crowned the ‘Employee of the Year’ at a recently-concluded evening in Jaipur, interestingly themed Dabaang.

    What should we know about the Dabaang evening?
    It’s an annual event awarding the best performers of the company. It was a themed party and this year’s theme was villains ‘n’ vamps. It was a riot and we had a blast.

    How does it feel to be employee of the year?
    It’s a huge boost and it feels so good to be recognised. This obviously motivates me to better myself and take my craft to the next level. I’m extremely happy that I was chosen the Dabaang for this year.
    What made you stick with the medium for over a decade?
    It’s simply the pure love I have for music. I’ve always listened to insane amounts (sic) of songs. So  I thought to myself, what if I become a host—it will help me get even even closer to the music I love. So as long as there is music, I’ll be in the medium. I can never get bored of doing this; it’s like a new song every day. That sort of sums up my life until now.

    A sneak peek into your acting experiment.
    Ah, now that was a fun experience. I never imagined myself as an actor. Director Vijay gave me an opportunity to be a part of his latest movie, Idhu Enna Mayam. I’m one of the friends in a group, who turns his passion into a career.

    Ajai Titus scales heights effortlessly. The pocket-size dynamite is ever-evolving and never ceases to surprise us with his bag of tricks. See you next week with more talk from the world of radio.
