No stunt, this?
Priyanka Chopra and Shahid Kapur is a love story that seems to be underlining itself quietly on twitter! Well, Chopra might be pushing Anjaana Anjaani and her tweets are about that but the actress is talking easy about Shahid Kapur.
Shahid says in his sparse tweets in the last two weeks, "Watched kkk 3 today loved it !" To which Priyanka Chopra replied, "@shahidkapoor Thanx so much Shak.. That means a lot... Xoxo.."
In reply to a fan's query on who she considers best actors, she tweeted, "in my generation..Shahid Kapoor n Ranbir Kapoor."
And even went onto retweet, "RT @shahidkapoor Congratulations to the ali of female boxing 5 time world champion MC Mary Kom for winning her 5th today .... respect!!"
Looks like this is one couple, that's going strong! And their tweets seem proof? You decide!

The one couple which seems to grow stronger by the day is Gauri and Shah Rukh Khan.
SRK who posted a picture of the duo endorsing a wall furnishing tweets, "got a pic from the d decor shoot...the furnishing is awesome...the wife looks fine too. Here again he is surrounded by his wife and her beautiful friends.
He speaks as much of his kids. Sample this, "was watching karate kid.loved the film. have been seeing all of them for years & they never fail to make me love kids even more. now to bed."
And spending time with his kids, "eid was too much fun! saw episode of america's top model with daughter.one of the contestant was autistic...suddenly very proud of mnik."
Or even missing them, "want to go home & just hug my lil daughter & do some girly stuff. feel like gentleness around me...& of course explain eid to her. Bye"
And being the indulgent father, "made sherwani for aryan & myself...selling him the concept of sherwani as the garb of neo from matrix. hope he buys it & wears it on eid."
