Mumbai Ki Rani, Red FM's Malishka honoured with Dadasaheb Phalke award in 'RJ of The Year' category
MUMBAI: Mumbai ki Raani, RED FM’s Malishka has been honored with the Dadasaheb Phalke award in the RJ of the Year category at the prestigious Dadasaheb Phalke International Film Festival.
Excited on winning the award, RJ Malishka exclaimed, “I am over the moon. The Dadasaheb Phalke Award is a huge honor for an artist and I’m proud that they have decided to felicitate my work. I must say that at RED FM, the irreverent attitude and Bajaate Raho ethos has facilitated us RJs to speak our minds and encouraged us to be our authentic selves, to which I am very thankful. And of course, just like my radio station, I wish to say a big thank you to all my Mumbaikars who have shown immense faith in me time and again. Let’s keep the josh high.”
RED FM COO Nisha Narayanan also commented on Malishka’s noteworthy achievement, “We are elated that Malishka has been honored by the prestigious award. Today, the radio industry has RJs who are bold and vocal while voicing their opinion. Each of them has their individual personalities and the audience recognizes them by their face. This award belongs to Malishka and the entire team who has supported her through this journey. She is the personification of a headstrong individual who doesn’t deter during tough situations.”
Gifted with an uber cool, strong and energetic personality, Malishka has been ruling the radio jockey charts in India. The girl, who became a household name with her Morning Number 1 show, has always been on the forefront to voice her opinions against social issues. Her pothole rap Mumbai tula BMC var bharaosa nahi kay and Geli Geli Mumbai khadyat created waves in the city that has been suffering from the pothole issue for long now. Not just citizens, but Malishka’s rap grabbed attention of BMC officials too, who did coax her, but her motto to help the city and Mumbaikars won hearts.
While Malishka’s social campaigns have been successful owing to her exceptional social connect and voice, she is also a favourite among the Bollywood industry and her RED FM talk shows with top notch B’twon celebs says it all. From hosting Red Carpet of popular award shows to acting in films, Malishka has excelled in every field, she has tried hands on. This radio jock from RED FM indeed has a journey worth inspiring!
We at Radioandmusic congratulate Malishka for her remarkable win. We hope she wins many such accolades in the near future.
