Lata Mangeshkar

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 isn't often that Lata Mangeshkar shows her disappointment publicly.

But when she caught the Filmfare awards on television last night, she wasn't too happy with it.

She expressed herself with a tweet: 'namaskar,main filmfare awards function television pe dekh rahi hun,usme abhi thodi der pehele dikhaya gaya ki lata mangeshkar ne kaha tha ki filmfare award mujhe rumaal me lapetke dijiye,ye padhke mujhe bahot ascharya hua,kyo ki maine aisa na kabhi kaha aur na kabhi kahungi,mere liye har award logo'n ka pyar aur aashirwad hai,filmfare jaise popular awards mein istarhah ki galat baat likhna ya batana acchi baat nahi ye mujhe bade afsos ke saath kehena pad raha hai....' (I was watching the Filmfare awards function on television and, a little while ago, they said Lata Mangeshkar stated she wants the Filmfare award wrapped in a handkerchief. I was very surprised as I have never, and will never, say something like this. For me, every award is a sign of people's love and blessings. I'm very sorry to have to say it but it's not nice for a popular award show like Filmfare to show something wrong like this.)

Konkona Sen Sharma also seemed upset with the Filmfare awards. 'How come some awardees get to give a vote of thanks and some don't? So apparently filmfare gives them 5 min each, but Sony has final edit. Either way, not fair no?' she tweeted.

Amitabh Bachchan

Amitabh Bachchan, who was honoured by the Stardust's Pride of the Industry Award, was touched by the honour. He tweeted: 'Just back from Stardust Awards .. they gave me Pride of the Industry.42 years.Madhuri pays tribute. I am so humbled. I am also embarrassed by the Award. There cannot be one recipient of Pride. Hundreds have worked for years to build pride in Film Industry. I am a proud member of this fraternity. I cannot be its pride. So many have contributed who are much more worthy than I .. Without the contribution of the hundreds with their blood sweat and tears, the Film Industry would never be the greatest in the world. This fim industry integrates. Under the dark hall roof we are all one. Enjoy, laugh, cry, sing the same. Unique act for any nation'

He also collected the award for Aishwarya: 'Thats
picking up Aishwarya's best actress award for 'Guzarish'. she is in NewZealand with Abhishek,' he tweeted.
