You heard it here first folks, perennial favorite RJ Sunny D has taken her radio hosting talents to Bollywood as she spearheads an infusion of fresh, new talent to Indian radio station Mera Sangeet LA. Mera Sangeet is an Indian-centric radio station being brought to the Los Angeles airwaves by Bollywood star Pooja Batra and film director and producer Anshuvijay Rode, that seeks to better serve the Hindi-music seeking masses here stateside.

Sunny D, A.K.A. Sanna Khan, will be brightening up your radio dial through an online streaming show called “Ready, Steady, Go!” from 7-8 AM every morning beginning May 15th! Although the name seems more evocative of ‘60’s British pop-culture (invoking thoughts of Mods, Who records, and British flags on everything…), Sunny D will use the platform to play an eclectic variety ranging from Bollywood and songs to modern day pop fare all with a dash of her own sparkling personality and roguish wit thrown into the mix.

Sunny D joins such Mera Sangeet on-air talent like RJ Karan on Mera Sangeet’s line-up with rumors claiming Pooja Batra may even lend her talent to Mera Sangeet’s programming. Is there any truth to these rumors? Only time will tell, but make sure to tune in to Mera Sangeet LA online at http://www.Merasangeet.com or download their iPhone app so you can get the station streaming by finding the Mera Sangeet App at the Apple App store.

71 year-old Megastar, Amitabh Bachchan was honored with the Global Diversity Award 2013, at the State Room of Britain’s House of Commons.

Rt Hon John Bercow MP,  the Speaker of the House of Commons, presented the prestigious award to the Bollywood Godfather.  He called  him “a Bollywood icon and the most famous Indian film star of all time.”

He continued to describe the actor as a role model, saying: “You have been a role model and Amitabh you deserve the award.” British actor Hugh Grant was also present at the award ceremony.  Adding, “It is truly a great pleasure meeting Amitabh Bachchan. He is a gigantic actor, super star who is hugely popular. He is also like a saint in some way because of his charity and animal welfare work. If ever anyone who deserves the Global Diversity Award, it is Amitabh Bachchan. Congratulations.”

The ceremony recognized Amitabh as one of the most influential actors in the history of Indian cinema. He’s been seen in over 180 films in the last four decades and continues to make an impact even today.  “He is a Global patron for the diabetes charity Silver Star and last year was presented with a Mobile Diabetes Unit for his home city Mumbai named ‘Amitabh’ in his honor,” the citation said.

Mr Bachchan was filled with gratitude when receiving the “extremely historic award.” He continued to say:  “I have been extremely overwhelmed by the love and affection of the people of Great Britain,” and thanked his parents and family for their support in achieving what he did. He said when Keith Vaz introduced him to the Diabetes awareness campaign, “It has been a great privilege and honor to visit various cities in helping people to tackle diabetes.”

“My father taught English in Allahabad University and in 1952 he was the first Indian to get a Doctorate in English Language at the Cambridge. He completed his Doctorate in two years instead of the normal 4 years.” “There are very few institutions which can boast of such unity as the Film industry.” he added, referring to Bollywood of course.

When Mr Bachchan was asked about his forthcoming plans, he responded by saying “I just did a film called Satyagraha which dealt with socio-political issues. There are several other films in the pipeline including Bhootnath 2. I am also currently busy with the latest Hindi version of Who wants to become a Millionaire.

Congrats to Mr Amitabh Bachchan!
