Here's what your favourite Bollywood celebrities are tweeting

P
ooja Bhatt, who is riding high on the success of her latest film, said that Jism 2 isn't just a film, it's a cultural war. 

'Jism 2 has done a business of 21 crores in India over the weekend (despite releasing during Ramzan). Brand JISM my dears, is here to STAY! BRAND Jism is not merely a film. It is a cultural war. It is an EVENT. One that divides crowds passionately & turns its actors into STARS!' she tweeted.

And evidently, she isn't happy with Jism 2 being compared to Ekta Kapoor's Kya Super Kool Hain Hum. 'Jism 2 rakes in 21 crores plus over the weekend yet mid-day compares it to Kya super cool hain hum? Someone's PRO working overtime? LOL. I made Jism 2 for 12 crores including P&A & it got a 21 crore PLUS weekend! Vested interests in the industry can chew or choke on that! : )' she wrote.

The actress-turned-filmmaker also made it clear that she isn't interested in joining the 100-crore club. 'Do I belong to the 100 cr club? Do I make films for close to 90 cr that do business of 100 cr? Not a chance! You can KEEP your club!' she added.
