Odia actresses Archita, Elina turn news anchors

Bhubaneswar: They have faced the camera as glamour queens but top Ollywood actresses Archita and Elina were first time seen as news readers on OTV. While Elina presented news on O TV on Wednesday, Archita hosted a bulletin on Friday.

The vivacious Elina who is the female lead in Tarang Cine Productions’ Abhay released last week was impressive as a news reader too. “I have played so many characters in movies but reading out news on television is a first time experience for me. I was very nervous but once the bulletin was over, I loved every bit of the experience. Now I wish to play a journalist or news reader in a movie in future,” said Elina.

Graceful and charming Archita looked cut out to host news when she presented the reports on farmer issues with confidence. “I have always admired all the journalism professionals and I feel very lucky to be associated with the world of news which I have always seen in high esteem,” said the actress.

OTV’s unique initiative has already featured top celebs like Anubhav and Babushan earlier. Personalities from the film industry and various fields will be seen in the different avatar in future.
