RJ Rashmi or Rapid Rashmi as she's popularly known in Bangalore, creates a storm on air between 2 and 5 pm Mondays to Fridays on RapidAdda.
Rapid Adda (Hangout), formerly known as Broadcast Bandi, is the only show on Big's Bangalore station that's stayed since inception, and that says it all. Rashmi is liked for her voice and also has a unique laugh, which people love to hear over and over.
Rapid Rashmi with her quick wit has created an adda, which is a radio adda that gives a forum for young unique talent to come and exhibit on her show.
She also maintains a forum on social networking sites where her listeners can interact with her. Catch Namita Gupta in an informal chat with the RJ herself
What's your show Rapidadda all about?
As the name indicates, the show is a replica of radio on wheels covering hangouts, colleges, happenings in Bangalore and making people play the 'Yes or No' game, across the city in the afternoon from 2 pm to 5 pm.
What is the Yes or No Game?
The Yes or No game is a unique on air game where the listener will have to respond to the questions posted by me without using the word Yes or No throughout the whole conversation. Sounds quite simple, but it's pretty tricky. Like I would pose a question - if Lions could fly and you have to answer without a yes or no and then say something on it. The fun is in how the listeners respond spontaneously in their own funny and wicked ways.
What's the specialty of your show?
It's more of a youth show and we do a lot of interesting Bollywood gossip on air sometimes; like, is Shah Rukh Khan in love with Kajol? This game has been on for over a year, but is still one of the most popular games played on air.
We also have memory games and ulta palta (topsy turvey or upside down) game on the show. I have to constantly think of fabrics to make it exciting. It is an adda where you can get entertainment, enter contests and win prizes.
Then, we've had Kannada superstar interviews also. You know actors like Komal and more recently, Ganesh talking about his movie Aramane. Then the recent vibes of Sreesanth and Bhajji were aired with people's views on whether or not
