VJ, and now Cricket Anchor Archana Vijay, interviewed Virender Sehwag just
before the start of play on the day he went on to score his triple
century. She has that effect on people.
Archana Vijay's life changed overnight after winning Channel [V]'s Get Gorgeous
title in 2004. Alipore's Archana Vijaya who went to Loreto House and
Bhawanipore College is a sports fanatic, but was more inclined towards
basketball in school. After winning the Get Gorgeous title, Archana switched to walking the ramp in Milan, Rome, Paris and became a Channel [V] anchor.
The 24-year-old quit Channel [V] to do Tour Diary for Extra Cover on
Neo Sports - an 'inside the locker room' style pre-match program that
one normally associates with soccer and NBA basketball. She is not
Mandira Bedi or Mayanti Langer. Her cricket show is all about the
cities, the romance of the place and the places to be - a tour diary.
"I make the people far away feel at home," she says.
For instance, she went shopping with Andrew Symonds (in Hyderabad),
visited Sreesanth's house in Kochi, and did dandiya in Gujarat with
Irfan Pathan. The type of stuff that draws audiences.
