VJs or Video Jockeys have been an inevitable part of every 90’s kid’s entertainment, and we all can name a few. Not only this, we have our favorite VJs like Ayushmann Khurrana making it big in Bollywood. But here we are to talk about female VJs, which are less in comparison to the number of male VJs, but are equally effective, nevertheless.
