Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher’s Marriage Plans

Mila Kunis and boyfriend Ashton Kutcher are reportedly planning to get married in Britain.

Since Kunis has been shooting in Britain for her movie Jupiter Ascending, the couple has been staying there for quite sometime now.

According to sources, “Mila and Ashton have fallen in love with Britain. They are desperate to get married as soon as possible because they want to start a family and are slightly old-fashioned about these things.”

“The first place they thought of was Stonehenge, but they’ve also been looking at the Royal Pavilion in Brighton. Mila loves the idea of a stately home or something in the English countryside,” the source added.

Although the couple is considering a lavish venue for their big day, sources say Mila and Ashton want to keep it very “low-key” with selective close friends and family.

The couple has yet to even announce their engagement, but sources say Mila has taken it to the next level by introducing Ashton to her parents.

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!

The latest installation of the Star Trek franchise is going into widespread release this Friday May 17th in one of the most highly anticipated releases of the summer.  This edition of the series is the second since J.J. Abrams took over as director and will once again star Chris Pine as the arrogant yet loveable Kirk, Zachary Quinto as Spock, Zoe Saldana as Lt. Uhura, newcomer Benedict Cumberbatch as the film’s main villain and all the others from the previous Star Trek movie.

The film’s plot revolves around the usual emergencies that face the U.S.S. Enterprise and also Cumberbatch’s unique turn as villain Khan, audiences can surely once again expect dazzling special effects, tight action sequences, and the funny quips we’ve all grown accustomed to from this latest embodiment of the Enterprise Crew.

Here’s the latest, somber trailer for Star Trek Into Darkness:

After the recent international and domestic success of Iron Man 3 let’s see if audiences react as positively to the second installation of Star Trek!

Bollywood mourns the death of Delhi rape victim

The young girl brutally gang-raped in New Delhi which shocked the nation, has died in a Singapore hospital early Saturday.

Bollywood

The stars had a lot to say about this tragic incident.

Sridevi (in an interview) – We should ensure that such incidents don’t not happen again and the accused should be punished.

(via Tweet) My heart goes out to the girl & her family in Delhi. Hope justice is served to the guilty of this heinous crime with a severe punishment.

Esha Gupta (in an interview) – Rape is the worst of all crimes that a man can commit. Even murder… the person is dead. But rape – you ruin another person’s life. Leave her living, but she dies inside. In my opinion, this is worse than murder. Capital punishment is too easy – rapists and molesters should be stoned in public, they must be given a slow, painful death.

Priyanka Chopra (via Facebook) – It’s so scary that an independent woman in her own country cannot take a bus without the fear of being attacked.. This is not just a crime against women.. It’s a crime against society.. With so much being said about how women need to dress appropriately or behave appropriately.. I find this whole dialogue absurd.. A woman is not raped because She’s out at night or wearing a short dress or drinking.. She’s raped cause SOMEONE bloody RAPED HER!! And there is no excuse or explanation for that!! Small men who feel powerful by taking on a young girl minding her own business?! Living her beautiful life?! Why Kind of a democracy r we living in? Where a girl can’t be all she is wants to be just out of fear if Man!! Is this India Shining?? Is this even India? Whr is the fear if the law? Of the Govt? It’s shameful!

Juhi Chawla (via Twitter) – Read the newspapers this morning & I wish I hadn’t. Read the heart rending, shocking & saddening news about the gang-rape on a Delhi bus! My heart goes out to the little girl & her family. I hope those men are found & publicly punished for this heinous act. Sometimes I wish our laws were as simple & strict as tooth for tooth & an eye for an eye. Crimes like this wouldn’t happen!

Shabana Azmi (via Twitter) – Certainty of punishment acts as deterrent Death penalty not d answer. Conviction rate in rape cases is non existent.Guarantee safety of women.

Ayesh Takia Azmi (in an interview) – Traumatic, watching news of traumatic news of brutal gang rape in delhi!!! This is truly becoming an epidemic in this country, SHAMEFUL!

Lisa Ray (in an interview) – Public outrage and debate is healthy. Wise punishment is called for. Wisdom comes from introspection and turning the gaze in.

Gul Panag (via Twitter) – Heartening to see women take to the streets. Needed, lest we forget. Of course our elected representatives remain cocooned:p.

Sophie Choudry (via Twitter) – SHAME! Takes incidents like Delhi gang-rape 4 ppl/MPs to show outrage! What about girls who r raped by family members?!Who’s protectin them?

Kareena Kapoor (in an interview) – It really should not have happened. In our country, we always take safety measures after any shocking incident happens. I definitely would like to say that getting justice in the country is really time taking. Our laws should be reassessed. Justice has to happen faster.

Huma Qureshi (via Twitter) – Rape is saying-I can violate u whenever I want. Killing rapists wnt solve nything. Respect women on an everyday basis. Stop nurturing men 2 think they r masters. Its not ok to b rude,uncouth even in seemingly small ways.In dat attitude is d seed of d problem. Or women to think that they r either 2 be put indoors, away from d male gaze nor goddesses to b put on a pedestal. Eveteasing,sex selection,domestic violence,dowry,honor killings…If u have seen ny injustice on women n been silent. YOU guilty as rapists

I normally don’t post about such events, but this one I couldn’t ignore. As a human being, we have God given rights. Life is one, and being able to live that life happily, is another. These rights aren’t tied to ones race, sex or religion, these rights are for everyone. When these rights are violated, what is left for us? I seriously think we as a human race need to wake up and stop blaming the victims of such tragedy, and take proper action to ensure that evil, like in this girls case, doesn’t happen again. How can we do this? No, it isn’t easy, but if people are properly punished for such crimes, instead of the victim being scrutinized–maybe then we will start to see changes. 

God rest her soul.
