Small screen is now full of Reality Shows.

Sea shore beauty 'Anushree' has come to light through one of these reality shows.
At the time when all the other channels are telecasting the crime diary/stories in their prime time programmes, Zee Kannada has started a new type comedy show named by 'Comedy Kiladigalu' . Even though there were many anchors very good name in fame only after Anushree gave an entry to this programme. She has given a substitute to the other anchors. AFter this Anushree has herself performed in Dance programme Kuniyonu Bara and has won in the final competition which was held betweeen 7 Divas (small screen Anchors) consequently Anushree has become the Mentor of Kuniyonu Bara which is now telecasting for recognising children's talent.

But the small screen has attracted her by the time she finish PUC thereby Anushree has become a busy anchor. She has answered to ABHIVYAKTI inspite of her busy schedule.
  • How did u enter into the small screen?

I was giving some programmes in a local channel by name 'Nam tv' at Mangalore, whenever i get the leisure time. At the same time ETV conducted a reality show by name Dancemela at St. Alosius College Mangalore. One of my friend introduced me to ETV pupil and allowed me to attend the screen test which was conduct for anchoring in ETV. They rated me 98% and selected me for anchoring. I was very happy. After some time I joined 'Kasturi tv' and than I joined Zee Kannada.

  • How were to initial ays in the small screen?

There was nothing special in anchoring when gave entry to small screen but it has turned completely when i joined Zee Kannada, Which is a good platform for anchors. Akul Balaji reffered my name. There is a homely atmosphere at Zee Kannada and they won't restrict. which has helped me a lot. By the time a i finish 125 episodes of "Comedy Kiladigalu". I got a very good focus and they support me a lot and make good programmes by keeping me in mind.

  • How do u feel in Reality shows as Anchor?

Anchoring in Reality shows is actually a challenge. My smiling might be a plus point. People liked me, even i am very sensitive. I litrally cry if i feel bad. Even they show the same on the screen. Whe i expressed my sadness I will fell, I experience . In my last series, people liked my dance in which i played the dual character role of 'Chamundi' & even that dance of Mahishashura, But i didn't understand why the audience have not clapped after finishing that show , after a minute many people came near to me and bowed at my feet. There were many aged people, I cannot forget this moment in my life.

  • How would be your preparation to each programme?

Obviously there should be a preparation to impress each one of the audience. Producers are having confidence on me. So i take the help and the suggestion from the technicians who are related to this programme. As i am a dance performer, I can make out the mistakes of the childres easily and encourage them to perform even better. I take everything seriously and sportively. Sometimes it wl be difficult to manage some situations in which parents do complain us when we challenge the opponents. Somehow i will manage it.

  • Are there any opportunities in serials & Movies?

Yes Sir, there were chances of acting in serials when i was there in ETV. Director M.D. Sridhar offered me a chance of acting in the movie "Joly Days". Shashank sir gave me a chance in Moggina Manassu". But i refused, but i felt bad that i missed a chance of acting after watching Moggina Manassu. I do think practically. I don't like to go in different routes. I would like to establish myself as a good anchor.

  • Anything New ideas can be used in Anchoring? and Dreams???

Yeah..,Now-a-days the style of anchors has to be charged as there are variety of programmes are knocking the Door. We should have certainly according to peoples likings. Then there will be a strong position for anchoring. My mother will always encourage me. My dream would be to make an adventorous programme using youngesters. I have an interest of working behind the screen. One day I will become a Director but still there is a time for that, till that time i will settle down as a very good anchor.

ABHIVYAKTI wish Anushree the best of luck and wish the smiling queen to get more and more opportunities.
