SRK, Lara tweets from South Africa
A quick update on what the stars are saying in 140 characters or less:
It's obvious that many Bollywood stars decided to get a ringside view of the World Cup straight from South Africa. Our favourite tweets came from SRK and Lara Dutta
Despite a few mishaps, SRK seems to be having a blast. Though he landed in SA to find no car waiting for him and his family -- eventually the Indian embassy came to his rescue and sent a car -- the last few days have been full of pictures with his son, his family headed for the safari and of the lions he saw on the safari.
He tweeted, 'Gotta go now & find german t shirts on the roadside...wife refusing to wear football jerseys...do they do designer stuff for world cup? Off to durban...am so excited that will be showing my kids the world cup...hope they remember it like i do seeing it on tv with my mom.'
Dutta, who seems to be in South Africa with Mahesh Bhupathi, tweeted, 'Just got into Jo'burg. So far Spanish supporters outnumbering the Dutch! Had a contingent blowing their vuvuzelas right from the airport!:-) Its an amazing atmosphere! South Africa has bn wonderful hosts! Fans from across the globe r raring 2 go! EVERYONE has a jersey, headgear on. 5 rows away from the pitch seated in a sea of orange & red! Spain has got me ths time! So happy & excited 2 b!'
The actress who calls herself 'grandmother to all seven super daft boxer pups' has posted pictures that share her excitement! The actress, who has been in Cape Town since the semi-finals, seems extremely upbeat. She tweeted earlier, 'Shot Andaaz & NO Entry in Cape town! Have very fond memories! Absolutely luve the energy there.'.

Smart alecks of the World Cup!
Rahul Khanna summarized yesterday's World Cup Match best when he tweeted, 'Manicurists the world over are going to be unemployed for a while thanks to this match.'
Or even what Aamir Khan said about the most widely spoken Octupus in the world, 'Paul beat me but it was not a fair contest, he got 8 hands! Dear Paul, aap purush nahi... Octopus ho.'
We even like Bipasha Basu's spunky tweet, 'Why do I need to know paul's predictions, I have john the octopus! He predicted rt from d start spain would win.They did! Yay!'

Guess who was at Big B's house for dinner. As Big B articulated, 'Ok ! So that was Aamir coming over for dinner and wanting to see PAA .. Just finished .. He loved it .. Said Abhishek was terrific!'
Aamir Khan agreed and tweeted his response, 'Just got back home after watching Paa. Had a good cry. Lovely film. Amithji is outstanding. Learning experience watching him. Really loved Abhishek. He hit just the right note, very moving. Vidhya has given one more outstanding performance. Had been wanting to watch Paa since before its release. So glad I watched it today.'
Even Bips and PC look like they are planning to meet! Sample their exchange as Priyanka said to the Bong actress, 'lucky u u get to c the ocean frm ur house ya!!!' And retorted then to Bipasha's invite! ':( thanx ya babe.. arre call kar ke to Dekh!! I shall arrive!!!!'
We love Shilpa Shetty's forward thinking: 'So impressed with Pauls predictions that i wanna bring him down 4 next yrs Ipl4,wil help 2 kno how Rajasthan Royals will fare be4hand!;) ;)ha.'

Honesty, thy name is tweet!
Don't believe us. Hear the stars confess. Sanjay Dutt says, 'Its been more than 30 years in the industry, but every time, any of my movie is about to release, I suffer anxiety as a new comer'
Neha Dhupia says candidly of a rainy day in Mumbai: 'Rain, yoga, rain, lunch, rain, meeting, rain is the only constant today!'
Imran Khan says, 'Back on set for day two of the new Coke ad. It's turning out really well, and @DibakarBanerjee is using a really cool song for it. I refuse to drink: Diet!'
Back to Rahul Khanna again who tweets, 'Stuck in traffic, watching school kids have a water fight. A tad redundant in this weather but remember how much fun it was...?'
And here's Priyanka chatting with Shahid Kapoor's brother on twitter: 'never take life seriously, no one gets out alive anyway :P (via @Ishaanjbwkz) faaaaab ishaan!' What's cooking, we wonder?
Priyanka has another fan in co-star Neil N Mukesh who tweeted, 'Its a picture wrap for me. Saat khoon maaf over. The irony is that this was my seventh film :) it was awesome workin wit ya on saat khoon maaf U made the film tooo much fun... C ya soon..xoxo'

Priyanka also tweets about her younger brother's BIG birthday: 'Ok so I didn't sleep.. Hung out with my family.. Felt great to just chill with everyone on the breakfast table..never really happens. Felt like a Sunday morning from my childhood. Where we'd all plan our day over parathas and eggs..today my brother and his friends plan on.
'So it's a mad mad weekend! Too bad i'm working thru it all..work days party nights!! Haha!! My mums going crazy trying to accommodate everyone Dropping in on sets.. The house is full of crazy boys who've all flown in to bring in my brothers coming of age bday he turns 21on the 12th.'
We thinks she's super fun to have an elder sister. What do you think?
