But besides all of this… he’s also a Radio Jockey with India’s leading radio network Radio Mirchi.
So 3 years ago Kshitij envisioned the need to stage a singing talent hunt aiming at children and playing around the monsoon season.
Music combined with amazing fresh vocals across the rainy season saw the birth of Mirchi Tansen Junior in Baroda.
An activity that gave a voice to several hopefuls. One which allowed children that chance to shine in the limelight.
Today‎, the activity is spreading out to the Gujarat cluster; across the airwaves for the first time! The success of MTJ has seen the hunt receive a great deal of attention from the Gujarat media and is something children and their parents look forward too.
So with the leading jocks of the Gujarat network pitching in from the cities of Ahmedabad, Surat and Rajkot, the dream to find the young musical Tansen voice of tomorrow lives on.
