Bollywood bids adieu to 2010
The twitter world is quite a busy one, and Bollywood contributes a great deal to it. Here's looking at the best star tweets of the day.
From pantyless appearances to star-stubbed Koffees, the year has been quite eventful. Now, the stars are getting ready to bid adieu to the year in style.
Given the fact Bipasha Basu's Aakrosh and Lamhaa didn't do well, she tweeted, '2010 almost over! It has been a very extreme year! Mix of Good n Bad!2011 has to be only GOOD GOOD GOOD GOOD for everyone!Looking forward! - Welcome the last day of the year with a big smile:) n tonight we PARTY!!!'
The actress added a picture of her as well.
Shilpa Shetty put it quite well: 'Things that won't come back,The Triggerd Bullet,the Spoken Word,the Wastd Time,the Neglectd Opprtnty,the year 2010..Happy New year tweetos'
Amitabh Bachchan, who is in Goa presently, tweeted, 'Good morning for 2010 ! Tomorrow it will be for 2011 ! Stepping out into the sun.. virtually and metaphorically too ! Love and more !'
He added, 'Goa ... so many memories attached to it and yet not enough. The grand children shall be joining us later and they have already sent in their requests and demands.'
Just basking in the success of Dabangg, Sonakshi Sinha tweeted: 'Aiyo! Last day of my BEST year so far! 2011 u better be bigger and better for ALL of us! Sahi bola ki nahi, doston?'
Arbaaz Khan joined in: 'Aap sab ko naye saal ki shubh kaamnaye. Have a great day and a Dabangg year ahead. lots of love n best wishes !!!'

Here's wishing everyone a wonderful 2011!

It's family time!
Madhuri Dixit, whose family is in Mumbai for the New Year celebrations, tweeted: 'Got my whole fam here chillin' with me in Mumbai. And yes, the news is right, you will see them on the show Monday!'
The show mentioned is of course Jhalak Dhhikla Jaa.

Working hard on New Year's Eve
The year may not have been so fruitful for some Bollywood actresses but New Year's Eve always proves to be a big ticket for them as they charge a bomb for their thumkas.
Bipasha Basu, who is shaking her booty at Golden Palms Resort in Bangalore tonight, tweeted: 'Last day of 2010 I will be in Bengaluru! Performing at Golden Palms! Let's get 2011 with a bang in Bangalore!'
Genelia D'souza, on the other hand, didn't seem so happy as she tweeted, 'Hav a nite shoot 2day 6pm-6am shift, so dat means I shoot on d 2nd last n last day of 2010 in 1shift,, hw lucky am i??'

Amitabh gets devotional
Amitabh Bachchan seemed to be in a devotional mood, as he tweeted, 'The Sikh prayer and greeting is Satya - Shree - Akaal as rightly pointed out to me .. and not Satsriakaal as I had written in Hindi.'
But that isn't all. A fan pointed out to Big B: 'Akaal is time less,shri is respectable and satya is the only truth .HE is only GOD..timeless,respectable and truth'
He went on to explain, 'It derives from Satya meaning truth, sri meaning respect and akaal meaning timeless .. to GOD'
Can we expect yet a devotional CD in Big B's baritone?

They said it!
Lyricist Javed Akhtar, who has been in the news for crusading for the rights of lyricists and singers, showed his gratitude as he wrote: 'I thank each member of our associations and federation of western India cine employees who raised their voice for a just cause. 90% film people in Mumbai are members of Some association that is a part of the federation. It represents 90% of industry's point of view.'
Director Madhur Bhandarkar, on the other hand, shared a thought, 'If tomorrow were never to come, it would not be worth living today!!!'
Similarly, Mahesh Bhatt conveyed a message: 'The leaders need to know to hear people's feelings and needs, no matter how they are communicating. When the other person hear's a demand from us,they see two options: submit or rebel.'
