*Journey of Namitaa Sachdeva: As an entertainment journalist to hosting one of the most prestigious awards of India Filmfare


The loudest laugh, the widest smile and a subtle feminine but strong look with a very strong head held high and a sense of wit that makes her unique, this is Namitaa Sachdeva, an anchor, actor, voice over/dubbing artist, content creator and the most glamorous host of the award shows of Indian news & entertainment industry. The reason, why Namitaa symbolize a bold look because within a short span and with her talent she has touched the heights where only a few could dream.

Her journey as an entertainment journalist to hosting one of the most prestigious awards of India, she has created a graceful space in this niche industry and it was not a cake walk for her. According to Namitaa, she has struggled hard to make people understand that the girls in show business are not mere show pieces, they have their brain equally stable on their shoulders and she had to work really hard to grace that position.

In a world where multi-tasking is the mantra Namitaa’s inspiration and hard working nature is derived from her late father and equally hard working and caring mother who lives in between Delhi & Mumbai, this Multi faceted artist tapped into the entertainment world when she was still studying, yes she was spotted by a programming head of a channel in Delhi University campus where auditions were organized to find a new face for the channel and rest is a history now.

So yes, she started off while she was still doing her Graduation at Delhi University. She forayed into entertainment journalism, hosting and producing shows which are associated with TV and the Digital medium as well. Born and brought up in Delhi she is a diehard fan of King of the Bollywood Shahrukh Khan and wish to work with him some day. Her passion for the anchoring got noticed widely & went on full display when she became the host for Zee Network and later Times Group and Indian Television Award Shows. Also, she got the opportunity twice to host one of the most prestigious National Film Awards organised by Government of India at Doordarshan National. And Recently she has hosted the most glamorous awards i.e. 68th Filmfare awards 2023 and interviewed the best actor, director, playback singers, choreographer and much more which is still a dream for others.

Her shows on ABP News, Times Network, Hindustan Times, DD National, Punjab Kesari Group, Zee Network, Tata sky and Amazon have been appreciated widely. Also lots of TV commercials, Celebrity interviews, corporate events, Government advertisements and award shows have been graced by her presence.

Through all these years, she honed her artistic skills by being in the company of the biggest names of Indian cinema, thanks to her journalistic journey which has always provided the opportunity to speak and learn with the luminaries of Indian Cinema.

Namitaa Sachdeva is currently working on her first Hindi film project which has been offered by a renowned International Film maker (name not to be disclosed) With her feet firmly planted in the world of International Cinema and stage productions, an anchor and an artist, Namitaa Sachdeva doesn’t shy away to admit her first love was always cinema, entrepreneurship came by an accident only yes you read it correctly she has her very own apparel brand – Anaika India and soon she is gonna launch another brand for a certain target audience.

Namitaa is very confident in her own space with a sharp and focused mind. This image gets even more fortified when she is on the screen or chairing a session as a moderator. She is not scared of any obstacle in fact she is living her professional persona and her personal life too with a fine balance.
No wonder people love her for what she is.

Honesty in her professional commitments and her own firm belief in ‘living at this moment’ oozes out of her carefully in her chosen words and steps. So while on one hand she talks about entertainment on the other hand she also talks about her love for sports & cinema. In short, she has tried to touch upon every subject that goes around us and has offered her best to justify the topic as an anchor/host and the end result is that a very potent imagery emerges out of her wide canvas.
