We are delighted to introduce Shivi who is an experienced actor, performer and interviewer who has been acting since the young age of six, appearing on shows such as Grange Hill, The Inbetweeners and 999 Lifesavers. He has appeared in productions at the National Theatre and often works with up and coming production teams to help research and develop new musicals.
With a vast knowledge and interest in Bollywood and South Asian music, Shivi has worked tirelessly in creating a platform on social media and on radio, for new, emerging South Asian talent to get seen – something he is passionate about.
Shivi’s journey into radio started with a weekend breakfast show on London’s biggest Asian radio station, Lyca Radio, moving into the coveted drive time slot where he received two nominations for Best Radio Show and Best Presenter at the Asian Media Awards.
Outside of work, Shivi is a huge football fan, revelling in the highs and lows of supporting Arsenal (!) and he is also is a massive supporter of the arts and likes to catch musicals, plays and especially fringe theatre to support and experience new writing and talent.
Shivi is an experienced Interviewer and most notably through his work with Asian Fx aimed at the youth British Asian audience. He has interviewed a variety of artists, life coaches, authors amongst others for podcasts, broadcast interviews and social media bites. His conversational style gives him the ability to make guests feel relaxed and calm, and put even the most nervous of guests at ease.
