Why Anusha thinks she should become Star Anchor:
Journalism for me has been my life. Despite of initial hurdles, this profession comes naturally to me. The art of asking questions and comprehending the problems for the masses, I aspire to bring a change through my work. I ask informed and critical questions. Journalism for me is still about the fourth estate principles and is not about the concept of selling news and commercial journalism. I still believe that a social model of media has to evolve; in the meanwhile the professionals in the field of Journalism have to be vigilant and careful that Journalism evolves freely and fearlessly in India. Journalism for me is principles and in no way a profession.
