Malishka, known as Mumbai Ki Rani has been an RJ for 10 long years. She is famous for her show Morning No.1 on Red FM. The energetic girl can instil life to your dull mornings. Earlier, her show has won the Best Breakfast Programme/Show at the Indian Excellence in Radio Award. Many of you won’t be known to the fact that Malishka had trained Vidya Balan for Lage Raho Munnabhai in which she played the role of an RJ. Moreover, she also appeared in the film Tumhari Sulu.


Well, this is the first time that Dadasaheb Phalke International Film festival has instituted a category for Radio. For Malishka, it’s truly an honorable and overwhelming achievement.

The Mumbai Ki Rani, RJ Malishka quoted, “Success is not one thing. The goal post keeps changing but to constantly upgrade oneself and be the best version of oneself, is what I believe one must strive for. Then one must also make time to pat oneself on the back and enjoy that moment of glory before blazing on.”

Meanwhile, when she was selected in Red FM as RJ, Malishka said, “I feel success is also about being at the right place at the right time and being blessed.” She added, “It is not every day that you can find a niche and excel. At times, I am surprised at myself. No one imagined I would be an RJ, but that is what I am and I love what I do.”

“Once I tried to figure out who my target audience was. My team came back to me and said your spectrum is like 360-degrees. It is because my show’s content is meant for everyone. Maybe the language I use is of the masses, but the classes equally enjoy it. I have never held myself back,” talking about her work she said.
