Bubbling with energy

Anusha Dandekar

In a short span of time, Anusha Dandekar has tried her hand in acting, dancing, modelling, veejaying, reality television and now very soon she will be busying herself with what she loves the most — singing. Along with her sisters, Shibani and Apeksha, Anusha has formed a pop band called D Major. “Since we were kids, the three of us have always been the performing monkeys of the family so everyone saw it coming. A couple of years ago both of them called me and asked if I was ready to join them and I was more than happy,” says Anusha. The album, she says, has shades of pop, hip-pop and R&B with English, Hindi, Punjabi and also Marathi numbers.
        
So does that put an end to her movie career? “I am taking a break from movies right now as I have got my hands full with the album,” says Anusha who was earlier seen in movies like Mumbai Matinee, Virrudh and Anthony Kaun Hai. Apart from the album Anusha is also busy with two reality shows, Fast and the Gorgeous and Teen Diva. 

Ironically, Anusha first bagged the veejay post through a reality show. “I do know how it feels like to be on both sides of a reality show now. The only difference is that I am a lot less nervous as it is me who gets to announce who’s in and who’s out,” she adds.

Though she was hosting the first season of Teen Diva, in the ongoing season, she is the mentor of the young contestants. “It’s all so new to me as it is way different from just hosting a show. All the contestants are so young and innocent and it is very pressurising on me as they look up to me and I definitely don’t want to let them down. But eventually at every stage of the competition, it gets harder since I have got attached to all of them,” she says.

Ask her what kind of role model she would like to be for all the contestants and she says, “I would like to be someone who they can trust. Even after the show, I would like to support them in every way I can.”

Having done all this, is there really anything more she is waiting to do? “I always say that if I didn’t love all these things I wouldn’t really try them. So for the future there is still one thing that I have planned out and that is to start my own line of clothes,” she adds. Having hosted a show called Style Check, Anusha says that she loves clothes. “My own personal style statement would be anything comfortable, like jeans, pajamas, tees and I am a total track suit baby,” she adds.

Surely, Anusha is one bundle of energy who has much more to offer the world.
