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.
It's about time Anil Kapoor gets on Twitter!
The actor who is back from filming Mission Impossible 4 with Tom Cruise got a pleasant surprise when the Holywood star tweeted his thanks over a comment that Anil had made in a recent interview.
Kapoor, who plays an Indian in the action film, praised his famous co-star, saying, "Tom Cruise is very dedicated and hardworking. Some days he slept for just three hours. That is the kind of drive and dedication which makes you so successful. It (Hollywood) is like a Premier League," he said.

We dig that model Yana Gupta can laugh at herself.
'Got a dilemma now..prada panties or gucci????,' she tweeted as she made fun of her recent panty-less outing.
Then there is Neil Nitin Mukesh. Don't let his serious avatar on screen fool you. This guy is quite the funny man. Sample his tweets where he recalls his shcool days. 'Once I was running down stairs in school. Missed one and flew down a 20 got up with a black blood clot on my chin.Looked like I had a goatee.And then a girl used to pull my cheeks a lot so to scare her I took a rubber snake.I was in class 4.Somehow I forgot and when I saw it I only freaked. Recently I went for parasailing and forgot to wear the harness.Was hanging for the 4 min ride. My hands were numb to pull down.was so stuck.'

Director Farah Khan had her own Sheila joke to share. She tweeted, 'Just heard,Sheila has her own bloody twitter account!@sheilakijawani !kya yaar.sm1 control her pls.hahaha.'
But it is Rahul Khanna who has the last word as he tweeted: 'Some very amusing Twitter lists I'm on: smartass-boulevard, bolly-fools, out-of-reach-ppl, funnies-and-wise-ish & does-not-follow-me-back.'
