Here's what your favourite Bollywood celebrities are tweeting.

It came as a funny surprise to music-composer Vishal Dadlani to see himself being nominated in Best Singer category for Chammak Challo at the Filmfare and Apsara awards. 

'I'm nominated for Best Vocals for Chhammak Challo at both the Filmfare and Apsara Awards. Funnily, I HAVEN'T SUNG on the song. At all!' he tweeted.

The song is actually sung by Akon, while Vishal-Shekhar have composed the music.

Vishal later clarified that he meant no disrespect. 'No disrespect to Filmfare and Apsara. They are run by friends and colleagues. Honest mistake. I was just setting the record straight,' he added.

Karan Johar rarely shows his displeasure publicly. But something obviously got to him, making him tweet: 'Actors and technicians have always been given the utmost respect in our company...and those who disrespect us need NEVER work with us again!'

We're not sure what exactly he's referring to. But is it sheer coincidence that cinematographer Ravi K Chandran, who walked out of Agneepath due to creative differences with the team, spoke out about the same only this morning to a Mumbai tabloid?
