Twentieth Television’s Reena Singh And Hillman Grad’s Rishi Rajani Launch ‘The Salon’ South Asian Mentorship Program
In the conversation of Asian and Asian American representation in film and TV, the South Asian community tends to be overlooked. In an effort to bolster South Asian visibility in front of and behind the camera, Reena Singh, Senior Vice President of Current Programming at Twentieth Television, and Rishi Rajani, President of Production and Development at Lena Waithe’s Hillman Grad Productions, are launching a mentorship program with The Salon, a collective of South Asian creatives in Hollywood created by literary manager Bash Naran and actor-producers Nik Dodani (Atypical) and Vinny Chhibber (The Red Line). The inaugural mentorship program is slated to kick off in October.
