The first song titled Gerua from Rohit Shetty's Dilwale was recently released in Mumbai.

Shah Rukh Khan posted on Twitter: 'Kajol, Apni shakal mat dikhana…nahi toh ek aur sundar sa gaana gaa doonga. Thx Sony Pritam & Amitabh. Gerua time! Also Arijit for lending me his beautiful voice and Farah Khan and Akki for the styling. Gerua makes me feel beautiful and in love.'

'Gerua means Ochre or Orange to keep it simple…even a bit saffrony. So colour me in the colour of love. Where I meet u, away from the sun, slipping thru the shade, a moment pauses, the sky melts into a mirror & sets within it: forming ur face,' he added.

The song made Karan Johar nostalgic. He praised it and tweeted: 'When @iamsrk opens his arms wide....it's that moment that defines celluloid romance!! Beautiful and breathtaking!!'

He posted an old photograph of himself with choreographer Farah Khan and Shah Rukh and added: 'Seeing the stunning and exotically executed #gerua bought back so many memories.'

Anubhav Sinha: #Gerua is the color of sunrise. Signifies Enlightenment. Name comes from a redish stone called Geru. Shiva's body was covered in its paste.

Sophie Choudry: The romance, the chemistry, the visuals, the styling ... Wow!!! No one does it better.

Censor Board thinks audience are thumb-sucking dumb juveniles

The Censor Board Of Film Certification (CBFC) has cleared the latest James Bond film Spectre with four cuts, including two kissing scenes.

Ram Gopal Varma ‏took to Twitter to mock the decision: 'Cutting kissing scenes in a bond film proves that censor board thinks audience are thumb sucking dumb juveniles who have to be house broken. Can members who Censor what's coming on screen,censor what their own family members and their own children watch on their own cell phones?

'It's high time the government grows up and treats the audience as adults capable of taking their own decisions on what to watch. If the adult has enough sense to elect his own government does the government think he or she doesn't have sense to know what to watch? It's high time in the so called progressive india to start giving ratings to movies like in America instead of random arbitrary cutting,' he added.

Meanwhile, Emraan Hashmi tweeted: 'So this guy James Bond calls up nervously ranting about something. Couldn't understand a word of what he was saying.'
