Education & Career
High school days are tough for many people around, including Naved. Born in Lucknow, Uttar Pradesh he was not much interested in studies. He completed his education from Uttar Pradesh government school.
Initially, hunting for jobs, he moved to Delhi and started working for Airtel mobile company as a customer service executive. Whenever any customer was angry, the phone was handed over to him. He would act like a 60-year-old man, thus automatically calming down the customer.
In 2000, radio Mirchi organized an RJ hunt program and he applied there. After a few auditions, he was the winner among 35,000 other contestants. Since then, he has been working with that station. He started his career as an RJ by hosting a show at night named “Dr. Love.” Soon after “Dr. Love,” he moved to host “Total Filmi.” Though he became a household name, he was still faceless to his fans.
In 2007, he started hosting the evening game from 5 PM TO 9 PM, “Bumper to Bumper.” He is continuing with this show and is now popularly known as “Sunset Samosa.” Over the years, Naved has been modulating five characters. New characters modulated by his voice include aunty, angrez chale gaye aur chor gaye kawali, etc.
The most unique and loved element of the show is “Mirchi Murga.” It is a call based prank in which Naved changes his voice to call and irritate people. In this show, RJ Naved pranked on Vidya Balan, Ravina Tandon, and many more. He believes that pranking the common man is difficult, but it enhances his communication with his listeners.
