Dev Anand gets nostalgic
The Twitter world is quite a busy one, and Bollywood contributes a great deal to it. Here's looking at the best star tweets of the day.
Dev Anand was caught in a nostalgic mood, as he praised Asha Bhosle's Hum Dono songs. The 1961 classic will be re-released in colour on February 4, and will be titled Hum Dono Rangeen. It will be in 3D version.
'Ashaji all the songs you sang are best but JAHAN ME AISA KAUN HAI KI JISKO GHAM MILA NAHI from Hum Dono is very touching,' he tweeted.
'Ashaji you indeed have a very sharp memory ,I remember during one of our music sittings you started humming JEENE DO AUR JEO from 1954 film Taxi Driver,' he added.

Amitabh Bachchan seemed surprised by something that Yash Chopra's wife Pamela Chopra said at the Apsara awards held yesterday.
'Was sitting next to Pam Chopra who pointed out, that I had won all the awards for PAA including National. A first .. never before,' he tweeted after the show.
The actor added, 'Gosh ! I had never ever looked at it this way .. A first of its kind !!'
Meanwhile, he also managed to surprise his fans as he wrote: 'MALAYALAM, the only palindromic language word in the universe .. 'Palindromic'..? word that reads left to right and reverse the same. Speaking of palindromes here is another 'Able was I ere I saw Elba' .. obviously Napoleon never said this .. but ...there are many palindromic words in Sanskrit too apparently ... will search and put up next time ..'.

Shahid Kapoor is all set to take on Deepika Padukone's Nescafe coffee ad with one of his own.
He tweeted, 'Morning all heading to shoot for the bru add .. Cute script should be a fun shoot ..Then flying off to chandi ki thandi again for mausam'
Tusshar Kapoor, on the other hand, shot for Red Chillies: 'The 'filmi dabba party' shoot for Red Chillies turned out to be a laugh riot, spoke so much that I felt like the host and not the guest.'
Sandhya Mridul, who was last seen almost a year back in Hum Tum Aur Ghost, is all set to face camera again. She tweeted: 'Shooting tom after a full years break ..worried..hope the camera can handle it !'
But it seems singer Shaan wasn't too comfortable posing for the camera: 'These cameras when u are recording are quite annoying !!! Should I give the right ex-pression ..look good OR sing ???'

Lisa Ray seemed nostalgic as she spent time with her little sis Devyani: 'Nostalgic afternoon with my half-breed little sis devyani watching her old family videos makes me crave a super 8 and sepia toned moments'
Vivek Oberoi tweeted his sister Meghna's message to him on New Year's eve: 'My adorable little sister meghna sent me this on new year's eve, wanted to share it with u all coz I think it's amazing!!! ----Your time is limited, don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma, which is living the result of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of other's opinion drown your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition, they somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary'
