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.

So what if their last films haven't done so well, these actors are back to interacting with their fans and not running away from them!

Our much respect goes out to Jr Bachchan who's had a rough time at the Box office with KHJJS and Raavan. He tweets, 'phew! it's been a rough week! but... you gotta take it on the chin, gather all your strength and get back in the ring. but this time you have to come back stronger and more determined. thank you for all the love and support! you make it all worthwhile.'

Even Hrithik Roshan's been tweeting ever so often after Guzaarish says, 'Many thanks 2 u all 4 giving me that much love for guzaarish...storing it all in a deep place in my heart, will help 2 stand strong in times of turbulence... :)

Ah, so much grace these Bollywood stars have! Yaana Gupta is following suit too. She tweeted before her telly debut on Sunday on Jhalak Dikhlaja and the messages from her fans, 'Thanks 4 you wishes and nope,haven't forgotten 'anything' this time.sorry 4 letting u down guys:-).'

Well, lets hope there are no more wardrobe malfunctions now:)

It was me that flew late last nite all the way to Kolkata to see u all, but i need u to understand that when there is a security breach I have no authority to argue with these guys.
