More on Shirdika Pillai

About Shirdika: Having been born and bred in Durban, I have my Honours degree in Drama & Performance Studies and was raised listening to Indian music. This quickly became my passion and I try to bring this information to my radio show(s).

Radio Experience & Progression: Having joined Lotus Fm 9 years ago, I have worked my way through every time-channel between 7am - 6pm and nearly every show on the station. My journey started off as traffic presenter on the then Morning Rush and thereafter I experienced the various roles and caps from producing to presenting. I now host The Lunch Break, weekdays between 12 – 3pm.
Radio is not where my expertise ends, having worked on T.V. (and theatre) for the past 7 years where I present: Sadhana – The Inward Path which flights every Sunday on SABC 3 at 7am.

Accomplishments: My tenacity on radio has earned me a pair of MTN Radio Award nominations and SATMA Award nominations as well.
My background includes dancing, a Miss-India 1st Princess title, acting, directing, voice-over artistry, modelling and cover-girl for Foschini’s Balanced Life Magazine,as well as being a member of the International Golden Key Honours Society.

Hobbies: I am passionate about animal rights, the dramatic arts, ancient history and travelling the globe.

General Facts: Good food, and interesting read, a well-crafted movie and a thought-provoking conversation are just some of the ways to get me, a self-confessed chocoholic listening to you.
