Malishka Mendonsa has always presented the woes of Mumbai in an entertaining manner with her quirky delivery over the radio and the content she brings to the fore.
Known as Mumbai Ki Rani, Malishka created a wild sensation across the country with her extremely popular pothole song last year.
For all her contribution to the radio, entertainment and media industry, Malishka Mendonsa has received the honour of a mention in IMPACT magazine’s 50 Most Influential Women in Media, Marketing and Advertising 2018, ranking seventh on the list.
Interestingly, Malishka, who debuted alongside Vidya Balan in Tumhari Sulu, was introduced on to the stage by a foreword written by the award-winning actress.
In her foreword, Vidya mentioned:
“Malishka is authentic! I guess that’s what makes her a success at whatever she attempts. Hers is a story that is constantly evolving and therefore inspiring. More power to you my lady!”
“This year has been about breaking out of the box, challenging perceptions about exploring every bit of talent whether it is film, TV or digital. At the same time, it has been hugely gratifying to have the public’s undying support for whenever I’ve been their voice. I hope my journey inspires many other women to go beyond being typecast in their respective roles. I am grateful for all the love and opportunities that have come my way.”
Amassing over five lakh followers in just the last year, Malishka is one of the most influential women on Twitter with a total follower count of 1.27 million.
Congratulations Malishka. You truly deserve it!
