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.

Be it remakes, music or even the name itself, Bollywood is highly inspired by Hollywood.

But Bollywood's controversial Khan, Salman Khan doesn't like the name. He tweeted his disappointment: 'Hate this bloody name, bollywood, koi naam hai kya ? Disgusting .'

He went to clarify the reason: 'Hollywood se bollywood naam nikla, this is nt the name of our industry. Don't kno whr this ridiculous name has cm frm n got stuck .'

He just didn't stop there. He continued his rant as he wrote: 'Bollywood was fr wen mumbai was called bombay toh kya shld it nt b called mumllywood,hw ridiculous is it. it makes us look like chamchas'

So what do we call Bollywood then? Salman tweeted: '1 of the 1 st film production was called bombay talkie's so call it that or mumbai tal... Or indian cinema,call it any thing but nt boll..'

'Jst got a super tweet saying that it shld b caled hi fi which stands fr indian film industry . Cool name. Sorry hi fi stands for hindi film industry' he added.
