TV host and popular VJ Anusha Dandekar says back in 2002 when she shifted base from Australia to India, she was over-charged for everything as she was considered to be a “foreigner”.
“I moved to Mumbai from Australia in my teens. With my heavy accent and little knowledge about the city, buying furniture, kitchen appliances, even toiletries was tough as I was a ‘foreigner’ and was over-charged for everything,” Anusha tweeted on Thursday.
She was just 19 when she moved to Mumbai for a career in the entertainment industry.
She started off as an anchor in MTV’s House of Style. She later hosted Dance Crew, Teen Diva and Love School.
Anusha made her acting debut in Bollywood in 2003 with Mumbai Matinee and later did films like Viruddh and Anthony Kaun Hai?
