Riteish's Hurt Locker
Riteish Deshmukh seems to be having a tough time packing in those fab abs. He tweeted, '#IWish - kaash pizza khane se 8 pack ABS bante aur chocolate khane se wajan kam hota-Post your #IWishes'
Lara Dutta quickly agreed, as she tweeted, 'Can't believe how much I pay in the gym to put my body in pain!! Results r great but its so darn HARD!!! @Riteishd I'm with u on this buddy!'
Abhishek Bachchan agreed with Riteish as well: 'i think some cold stone creamery should take care of the pain!!!!! ahhhhh comfort food! an early morning run just hits the spot. that spot being of extreme pain and torture! HELP! can't even say bhaago like @realpreityzinta'
This led to a fun exchange between the two actors.
Riteish tweeted, 'let's jog to Main teri hoon jaanam (english mein who jo bhi gaana hain)'
Abhishek replied, 'THATS RESERVED JUST FOR YOU BRO..... THAT TOO IN SLOW MO!'
Riteish continued, 'Time to enter the HURT LOCKER (as @juniorbachchan rightly calls it)-wish we all were born with good bodies. Kitni mehnat karni padti hai :('

Dev Anand, who will re-release his old classic Hum Dono in colour, as Hum Dono Rangeen, tweeted about the film, 'the digitally remastered stereo tracks of hum dono Rangeen are indeed wonderful I must say Lataji, Ashaji and Rafisaab would be there as long as music is there they are eternal great music by jaidevji and finest lyrics by saahirsaab and great performances by sadhnaji and nandaji they look so beautiful.'
Lata Mangeshkar, meanwhile, continued to pay homage to Pandit Bhimsen Joshi, who passed away on Monday, and posted a picture of them together.

He continued, 'Decorated with the Bharat Ratna, the highest honor of the country ... aaj bharat ka woh anmol ratna, hamare beech nahin raha ...Had heard him personally on several occasions ...a simple man committed to his craft with such magnificence ..atma ki shanti ishwar'
