Need a Bollywood fix? Renu has that covered as our new Bollywood Beat reporter!
Renu Chandarana began her career in broadcasting as a morning show co-host for Fairchild Radio’s South Asian weekday morning show in Vancouver. She graduated from the University of British Columbia with a degree in English Language with the hopes of becoming an ESL teacher but the thrill of live radio was too good to give up. She decided to take her passion for speaking and writing to Toronto where she completed a post-graduate Applied Arts degree in Radio and Television production from Ryerson University.
Renu has since worked as a Production Coordinator, Associate Producer, Writer and Producer on shows for HGTV, Food Network Canada, Discovery Health, National Geographic and the CBC as well as Rogers TV in London, Ontario.
After getting married, she lived in London, Ontario where she was a Producer and Renu and her family are now settled in Calgary, Alberta for the long haul. She has a toddler daughter who keeps her on her toes and when she’s not at home giving cuddles and tickles or making rotis, she’s working as a Writer and Producer for a large independent production company that specializes in Hollywood and Bollywood Entertainment TV shows. To de-stress, Renu teaches Body Jam, a fitness dance class at The Goodlife.
As a South Asian mom who has to balance family life with work life Renu firmly believes that there needs to always be a little fun and entertainment thrown into the mix. Being a huge fan of Bollywood, she hopes that her articles for Masalamommas.com will add some Bolly spice to the already Masala filled site! You can look forward to reading about the Hindi Film Industry as well as our own fellow South Asian Canadians in Film and TV right here in our own backyard!
