Archana Vijaya, mostly known for hosting IPL Extraa Innings on Sony Max, is definitely among those lovely ladies, who are not only a perfect combination of beauty with brains but also have a witty side.
Recently, we chatted with the lady, where she mentioned that hosting another season of IPL Extraa Innings feels like participating in another stunt reality show.
She shared candidly, “When I went to Delhi to anchor the ceremony, the crowd was going mad, everyone was crying in excitement and after witnessing that I suddenly had a feeling of going back to my Khatron Ke Khiladi days.”
Speaking about her experience in IPL, she mentioned, “In last few years I have seen the tournament grow immensely. And the best part I think is that it provides chance to many new talents to come up in both national and international cricket.”
“And personally speaking I am being able to live a very colourful life, travelling all the time. Though it can be difficult at times but I enjoy the rush attached to my profession. After all, everyone does not have the chance of having breakfast, lunch and dinner in three different cities,” added the lady in a lighter vein.
Archana is certainly among those few females who have successfully created a niche for her in the otherwise male dominated field. Commenting on the same, the lady quipped, “Initially when I started presenting, to some extent it was important for audience to judge how someone looks. But, once I started doing my job properly, people realized that I was not just a pretty face in the lot. And I loved that challenge to prove that I am honestly not another glam doll in the field. But, I think while presenting there are few difficulties, which are faced by both men and women.”
Years of anchoring has made Archana one seasoned host, who also believes that with each year and season the loyalty of fans towards the game has increased and the game, has contributed in its own way to many cricketers.
On that note we congratulate the lady and hope to see her anchoring more shows in the future.
