The audience base of The South African Desi have concerns over the current host, Mishka Gounden who has replaced Varshan Sookhun on the popular North Indian chart show – ‘Bollywood Billboard.’

The letter states, “Mr. Varshan Sookhun is a well-respected man for his immense knowledge of Bollywood and is solely responsible for bringing people to Lotus FM purely for his love for Bollywood.”

Calling his replacement Gounden as an ‘an incompetent presenter’ and ‘if you listen to this presenter speak, she sounds nasal, repeats herself an uncountable number of times, gets her facts constantly wrong and cannot speak professionally if her life depended on it.’

The writer implores Lotus FM management to disclose the employment criteria that was taken into consideration in replacing Sookhun on the popular chart show with  ‘a female who is not a youth icon and is extremely unprofessional with her constant lack of RJ skills.’

The writer suggested other potential personalities that could have been suitable replacements of  Kajal Bagwandeen and Riona Maharaj who have a attentive audience base that would fare better than Mishka Gounden. 

varshan sookhunThe South African Desi hosted a a recent poll of which 96% of its followers agree. ‘that Varshan Sookhun should be brought back to the Bollywood board because of the level of immaturity and lack of Bollywood knowledge this female has.’

The writer implores to management to “Listen to your presenters, especially this particular one.” for the number of issues that she outlined in her letter.

Some of the problems the writer mentioned of Mishka Gounden in the letter are:

  1. The amount of times she says uh or um (I counted in one minute it was approximately 12 times)
  2. Her immaturity in her “oh ma gaad’s, etc”
  3. How annoying her voice is to listeners with the way she speaks through her nose
  4. The amount of times her Bollywood facts are incorrect is pathetic.

– For example, she (Mishka Gounden) said, “Ishaan Khatter will be making his Bollywood debut with the film ‘Beyond the Clouds’ and is Shahid Kapoor’s younger brother. I would like to see if his family has had an influence on him but I already know that he has had no influence and will be making his Bollywood debut with Sridevi’s daughter in May”

– she (Mishka Gounden) also said in a previous week Salman Khan is in jail and was getting requests for him but he was out on bail.

– In a tribute to Avicci she played Priyanka Chopra’s ‘In my city’ – like really now? You’re the Bollywood presenter and you’re talking about an English DJ?
