The 28-year old ‘Slumdog Millionaire‘ and ‘Immortals‘ star has gone on the record to bring attention to the lack of women in creative behind-the-scenes roles in the male-dominated entertainment industry.

Freida Pinto told CNN recently “The only way to cure that problem is to have more female writers and more female directors. There will be a different perspective when you have women writers and women directors. There is sometimes a misconception that a female director can’t really tackle manly issues and definitely Kathryn Bigelow proves them wrong.”

Does this mean Ms. Pinto is going to put her money where her mouth is and perhaps get into writing or directing in the near future?  Not likely yet as her schedule is packed with more film roles in projects like Terrence Malick‘s ‘Knight of Cups‘ alongside Christian Bale and Richard Raymond‘s ‘Desert Dancer‘ coming out soon.  But perhaps when she has a second to think, she’ll opt to get behind the camera instead of infront of it.  We’re sure she’ll make an excellent director!

Here’s another Rihanna and Chris Brown update for all you RiRi lovers out there. The Singer is reportedly going to seek therapy to get over her break up with ex-boyfriend Chris Brown.

The 24- year old is nursing a broken heart after her official break up with Chris a few weeks back. We hear the Barbados beauty is finally ready to put her past behind her and start new.

A source said “Rihanna is still desperately in love with Chris. It’s like she’s obsessed with him and, although he’s told her it’s over, she just can’t get over him. After talking it through with a psychotherapist, Rihanna is now considering doing a 12-step program to get rid of her demons.”

As for Chris Brown, he’s back together with ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran, which he left for Rihanna a while ago.

Hmmm….. we’re starting to see a pattern here.

What is World SannaKhan and what do we do?

Simply put, World SannaKhan is the online intersection where Bollywood Meets Hollywood.  As the world increasingly becomes interconnected through technology and the mass-dissemination of information it is inevitable that cultures will interact as never before.  Bollywood, not Hollywood, is in actuality the world’s largest film industry in film output and it’s worldwide influence is growing every year.  For instance, did you know that India’s Reliance Entertainment has been an equal partner in Steven Spielberg’s DreamWorks Studios since 2009?

Bollywood can be loosely defined as the Indian film industry and is based in Mumbai, India.  Both Bollywood and Hollywood have their own firmament of stars, and we here at World SannaKhan intend to cover them both. We keep you informed with daily news, interviews, event coverage and other cultural movers and shakers that interest you most.

It all started when former Radio DesiBeat Radio Jockey, Sanna Khan AKA Sunny D, noticed that Hollywood and Bollywood’s worlds were increasingly intermingling with Indian/Pakistani actors appearing more and more in American productions and vice versa. Mainstream Hollywood stars such as Tom Cruise, John Hamm, and others have voiced their interest in appearing in Bollywood movies and Bollywood has increasingly drawn on Hollywood talent, onscreen and otherwise, to produce films.  Seizing on this unique moment in the history of both Bollywood and Hollywood, Sanna Khan decided to create a site dedicated to the coverage of both industries and thus, World SannaKhan was born!
