One of the most popular and admired news anchors in Hindi journalism is Vikas. He was very well loved as a child, but he gained fame in his 20s as one of the best-known names in Hindi journalism. Vikas is fearless, nationalistic, and proud to be an Indian. He loved reporting from difficult locations due to his fierce dedication to his country through his work as a journalist.
Vikas created his popular 9 PM show titled “ये भारत की बात है” (Yeh Bharat Ki Baat Hain) by working hard and dedicating himself to his craft.
