When Sonam lost out to Akshay
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.
Akshay Kumar may be busying shooting for his next film Thank You in Phuket, Thailand, with Sonam Kapoor, but he still seemed to be in a playful mood.
He wrote, 'Well I've reached Phuket where Sonam & i are shooting a song on a Cruise Ship for 'Thank You'. I tried playing basketball wiv her, but she kept saying the Ship keeps movin thats why she couldn't score, a true Heroine of course :) should reach Singapore by evening, that is if none of us have gone over-board, its so tempting :)'
Sonam Kapoor, on the other hand, is feeling homesick. She wrote to sister Rhea Kapoor, 'miss uu'
