Meenakshi Kandwal

Name: Meenakshi Kandwal
Age: 24 Years
Occupation: Media
City: Delhi

Status:Winner Of  Star Anchor Hunt 2010

About Meenakshi:
Meenakshi believes she is not someone who will follow a path because everyone is following it but she believes in carving her own path. She has been passionate about journalism since her school days, however under family pressure she graduated in commerce. But her true calling was something else, so rather than going for CA, CS, CWA or MBA career she took further studies in Journalism.

Why Meenakshi thinks she should become a Star Anchor:
I am a complete package in terms of news sense, journalistic approach & pleasant personality with positive attitude. I have a fresh face & style which surely will prove refreshing on screen. I have worked on output desk which makes me sound enough to handle the technical aspects of working in news channel. Besides that my purpose of becoming an anchor is not limited to the idea of being on screen only. But I love journalism, I have a deep interest in news & to be precise, presenting news to a country of 110 crore people is not only  amazing but challenging and responsible job, which I have the tenacity and capacity to perform.

Meenakshi Kandwal has started her new innings as News Anchor on Star News. Starting 4th August 2010, She has become news anchor on Star News. Here is first video of Meenakshi presenting news professionally on national television.

    New Delhi, June 21 (IANS) Bilaspur’s Akshay Shukla and Delhi’s Meenakshi beat four other finalists to win the Star Anchor Hunt for news anchors, winning a three-year contract with Star News and a Ford Figo car each.

    Akshay and Meenakshi, both 24, were declared the winners here Sunday at a gala event where Rashtriya Janata Dal chief Lalu Prasad was the chief guest.

    This is the first reality show to find news anchors.

    ‘It’s like a dream come true. When I went for the audition, I had it in my mind that I have to win this contest,’ Akshay told IANS.

    ‘Basically, I am an engineer, but I always wanted to be an anchor. When this opportunity came to me, I didn’t think twice before grabbing it. Although I didn’t get much support from people, I was adamant that I have to go for this.

    ‘Now that I have won, I feel more responsible towards my goal. I have to do much better in future,’ he added.

    In the final round, six finalists, including Vishal Kalra from Ahemdabad, Gurdeep Singh Mann from Chandigarh, Seher Ahmed from Jaipur and Pallavi Tyagi from Delhi, were asked to interview Lalu Prasad.

    ‘I feel I am still in a trance. The feeling of being the winner is yet to sink in,’ said Meenakshi, who used to work with a multinational firm.

    Author Chetan Bhagat, actress Tisca Chopra and Star News anchor Deepak Chowrasia were on the judges panel.

    Talking about his experience, Chetan told IANS: ‘Sitting on the judge’s seat was a bit strange and unusual as I am not used to it. But the experience has been fruitful. I always wanted to connect with the youth. This platform helped me to do so. I being an English language author, the show helped me to connect with the Hindi audiences.’

    Many-2 Congratulations!! to Meenakshi Kandwal

    I was watching the grand finale. Superb Show by Meenakshi.

    I am just guessing. She must be somewhere Uttarahkand as her title seems to be from there.

    Even i saw during the she was reporting about Nainital during one round.
