Reena performing with MY PET DRAGON



Footage with my band My Pet Dragon. We now perform as a duo.


Reena saw the casting notice for the animated feature 'Sita Sings The Blues' through the South Asian Women's Creative Collective (SAWCC). She sent Nina Paley voice over samples and she phoned back to say she would like her to be the speaking voice of Sita. Reena also sings this song "Agni Pariksha" in which I was also rotoscoped dancing. and my husband, singer/songwriter/producer: Todd Michaelsen composed the film soundtrack and original songs.



Ajay Naidu offered Reena the role of Chandini in his Directorial feature film debut -- ASHES.



I narrated the PBS Independent Lens Documentary -- A Dream In Doubt. It is about the 1st post-9/11 hate-crime murder in Arizona.
