The Bollywood Tweet Diary
A quick update on what the stars are saying in 140 characters.
It's a tough to be Hrithik Roshan given his penchant for controversy at the moment!
The actor tweets his justification for losing his cool with the media: "Visited Shirdi this morning, a family tradition before each release since decades. Dad, mom, su n me. But today was different, it took effort to pray with 30 media camera's feeding off every private moment..tried to feel peace...couldn't ... Can't believe they can now enter Gods shrine for TRP. Polite words requesting them were ignored. Right now I'm trying to forgive myself for losing my cool. But I guess when it comes to family any man would do the same. For d 1st time in 10 years as an actor, today I felt my privacy being invaded. What they did was wrong. Wish I could've risen above and given them all a big hug. We're all human, we're all the same. Only love can heal... "
Shah Rukh Khan was close at hand tweeting him luck. "Send u peace my friend. a piece of love ...a piece of success and a large piece of life. love & light to u in abundance. kites posters along the way. insha allah will fly so high, dad will have to give telescope glasses with it..3d glasses move over."
Lets hope the camaraderie continues and Kites goes flying up just the way SRK wishes it too!

Deepika Padukone's known very much to wear her heart on her sleeve. This time she displays her feelings on Twitter for co-star Neil Nitin Mukesh.
She tweets, "Packup! have 2 days left to complete LP...tday was my last day with neil...its been an absolute pleasure working with him... Soo much passion, enthusiasm, commitment, dedication...but more importantly a good and kind human being!...thank u neil!"
Neil on his part, tweeted, "really dont know what to write... as usual im speechless. All i can say is thank YOU."
The actor had earlier tweeted, "Kinda low only 2 days for my film to complete. Will miss the film and ... Every one."
Should one read between the dots? Is this the beginning of a new romance? Will Deepika and Niel be the new 'Deel'? Oooh! Watch this space for more.

Bachchan Jr lets out how Big B is superstitious!
He tweeted, "help with the cricket scores guys. Dad has banned even checking the cricket. hahaha. hope his superstition pays off!! go blue!! "
And despite India losing to West Indies, Bachchan Jr seems to have his hopes up high. He tweeted encouragingly, "Very disappointing loss for India. no problem!!! know one thing world. WE WILL BE BACK!!!! There's always next year. well done boys."
After a week of silence, this enthusiastic actor seems to be happy tweeting... despite his busy schedule, "Driving to the airport again. Always get nostalgic when I leave chennai. Have the fondest memories here. Guru, Yuva, Run and now Raavan."
Posting a picture with Mani Ratnam, he tweets, "Done for the day, phew! Spent an awesome evening with mani and Rahman at his studio. such a pleasure to see the 2 at work. Brilliant! AR has got the coolest apps on his iPad!! have to get some of them."
So, if you want to get Bachchan Jr something at the moment, iPad apps maybe the way to go!

Imran Khan can definitely hack it as a photographer or a foodie! He's posted some pictures with his witty comments.
And of course, the star who's at St Louis is asking every one for food reccos! So we suggest you give it to him pronto!
We wonder if Rahul Khanna has a bunch of scriptwriters writing his tweets!
The man is so incredibly funny that he could well have been the editor of a magazine. Given his wit and charm, we are sure he would succeed.
Sample these: "Every time I hear words like 'chillaxing' my ears start to bleed. " or "The vexing act of chatting with friends who message at 15 minute intervals doesn't qualify as IM-ing. I call it, EM-ing: eventual messaging."
We suggest if you are looking for dry, acerbic humour, you follow him pronto!
Salman Khan would make for a perfect coffee taster! Though he tweets he doesn't have more than two cuppas of his fix, his tweets are full of random pictures of him sampling coffee. Are the big coffee chains watching?
Khan is also turning to be quite a philosopher. Sample this: "Na hindu banega, na musalman banega, tu insaan ki aulad hai insaan banega" or "Fear is the key if u don't find the lock" or even, "Its all good. The world is made up of all kinds. Ones ceiling is another ones floor."
Hmm. Not the kind of writing his dad and script writer Salim Khan would have done...

Just in case you were wondering, just like many others why Shilpa Shetty doesn't wear a mangalsutra, she tweets, "i don't wear a mangalsutra on my neck unless am in indian attire hence I've made it in2 a bracelet:)"
Fellow actor Preity Zinta who's also holidaying in Thailand seems to be in her happy mood. "Went 4 a long walk on d beach & saw ''I love U written on d sand!'' Made me smile! Have u ever done that or has someone ever done that 4 u?"
And Lara Dutta admits that all is well with her world in her upfront and matter of fact way!
"Have had an amazing 2 days! Had a surprise celebration to commemorate 10 yrs since I won the Miss Universe Crown! ( Not afraid to say it). Realised how blessed i'm 2 hv the ppl I hv in my life! Was so touched! Friends & family flew in from all arnd the wrld! Was a true surprise! I think I cried more at this celebration than I did when I won! :-) "
And SRK ends it all with some fatherly thoughts, "fridays nites special cos get to sleep with the kids. fidgets...kicks...kisses...hugs...sleep talking...most peaceful sleep experience."
Isn't that sweet!
