Red FM has introduced a humanoid robot as a radio jockey. RJ Rashmi, the world’s first-ever Hindi speaking robot, has started hosting a show on Red FM.
The show #AskRashmi went on air on December 3 for the first time. As a part of this concept, Robot Rashmi hosts a show with RJ Raunac aka Baua from 10 am to 11 am and ‘Dilli ke kadak launde’ RJ Kisna and Ashish from 5 pm to 6 pm.
During the show 'Ask Rashmi', the robot interacts with the callers and responds to their questions. These conversations vary between a plethora of topics like politics, environment, road safety with an understanding of human emotions.
Nisha Narayanan, COO, Red FM, said, “Red FM is always working towards creating exciting content which also has the new age spark to it. It is the first time ever that a humanoid robot will be hosting a radio show in India. Rashmi the robot along with our RJs go on air together in a segment called #AskRashmi. We are thrilled to have her on air and looking forward to two weeks of fresh content for our listeners.”
Rashmi was created by Ranjit Srivastava who belongs to Ranchi. The robot was designed on the lines of Hong Kong's robot Sofia. Robot Rashmi not only speaks Hindi but can also speak English, Bhojpuri, and Marathi.
