My personal profile : "Laadiieeez and Zantleman", the spelling may be incorrect but the style has definitely imbibed in every lips from the time when Simran was Fiza Khan, the then famous AIR FM jockey. The voice with a toss of guts and firmness with a tinge of chirpiness. That’s what this vivacious diva of radio arena creating a unique profile. I proudly state that, liked by many and heard by millions.Its not easy to craft your own style of lingo and formulate it to induce to lots of people. I have my own distinctive way to pronounce colloquial language in very unusual manner. Apart from radio career, I am a very vibrant person in my social activities; I am an active member of several NGO’s working for women empowerment, author of ‘Radio Jockey Handbook: Understanding Radio’ and also planning to write its series. Iam a regular Yoga practitioner too.
