AK Rahman is a well known name in the Indian entertainment industry for his various ventures ranging from being an emcee to a chat dhow host and even an actor on popular day time tv shows.
The pandemic affected every income stream especially for live artists due to cancellation of their projects. But most of them were very quick to switch digital media and utilise the super powerful tool of social media and Rahman is the perfect example of it.
Talking about the switch in an interview, he shared, “The online transition has not made it easy. It has made it even more challenging. Now is the time to raise the bar, what u did in live events would give instant gratification, but online is not instant. You do not see instant smiles or applause coming your way and you need to keep your adrenaline pumping because YOU HAVE TO BE CHARGED UP .. YOU MAKE THE WHOLE EVENT GO TO THE NEXT LEVEL.
The positive of hosting online events is that you can experiment more and try new things.. completely get out of your comfort zone and DO THE NEW.”
AK Rahman has done over 3000 shows in his career, having worked with international organisations and companies like Samsung, Nestle, Apple, Sony and many more.
Working as an actor, he played negative characters in Star Plus’ magnum opus ‘Tujh Sang Preet Lagai Sajna’ and Colors TV’s popular show ‘Balika Vadhu’. Rahman also had his own chat show named ‘BRATCHAT’ which showcased many celebrities.
He also bagged the Top Emcee of the year 2020 for Business World and Everything Experiential and was also awarded the Best Emcee for private and social events in 2020. Rahman also won the award for the best anchor in social and wedding spaces in 2020 and is only going upwards.
