B-Stars & their fans!
Fans amuse our stars! Especially on twitter.
Sonam Kapoor's dealing with hysterical replies. She tweeted, 'I always wanted to be loved truly madly & deeply. I think that only happens in the movies.I'm so glad I became an actor, coz reality really bites!' To which a fan replied, 'It can happen in reality too. All one has to do is go to the market & buy a pet animal!'
Everyone needs love and so does Neil Nitin Mukesh. After a filling dinner, the actor asked his fans topics to discuss to which one fan asks, 'How about love?' Neil laughed it off as he replied tongue in cheek, 'I really need some :D love bro. Heehee'
