The Bollywood Tweet Diary

Winning no fun for SRK



I can't enough of SRK and his tweets! That man is seriously funny.

Sample this: "I asked my team if the Filmfare jokes were too cheap. They said recession just receding sir...cant afford rich ones... next year maybe. Ha Ha".

Or even seriously punchy just like his film dialogues: "I read a guy wants to meet me w/o my bodyguard & kick my @$*... the bodyguard is to protect u from me my friend ... not the other way round."

He's even dishing out advice to kids giving exams: "Fed up of studies? Go stand under a shower. Don't think of anything for 10 mins. Have a cuppa tea & toast... Munch slowly...Then get back to it".

Not that he's above taking/asking for advice himself. He asked Rajdeep Sardesai to explain to him the Women's Bill. Talk about getting his information from the right place!

He seems quite a hands-on dad tho! Get a hang of him and his daughter Suhana together here or when he says: "Winning no fun in balloon fights... losing is better. got all wet and had such a great time."

Let's just hope that doesn't happen to KKR in the IPL, especially after such a cute promo for the tee!!

And if you think SRK's the only one tweeting IPL, check out Zinta's tweets!.

Almost every other tweet is about sports/IPL or around it. Be it packing her bags -- "I love packing 4 d ipl matches! I pair of blue jeans & 2 KXIP t shirts; How simple is life... oh! now d after parties! will have 2 pack more!" 

Or her energy -- "My heart has already started beating fast! My friends tell me I should not get so involved ... but what to do ... I go crazy on that field!" 

Her fellow pals -- Priyanka Chopra and Abhishek Bachchan -- hit quite a milestone this week! PC hit the 2,00,000 tweet fans milestone! She even went to the Twitter HQ in the US -- check out the pics -- and won herself a lot of fans!

And Abhishek Bachchan with 1,00,000 fans says tongue in cheek, "you think they'll verify my account now?????"

Diamonds don't do it for this young'un

But it's the young'un's that seem to be making twitter quite a happening place! Tweets Shruti Hassan "diamonds aren't a girls best friend... shoes are:)"

My favourite so far is: "If Barbie is so popular, why do you have to buy her friends?"

Or Shahzahn Padamsee says quietly, "Beautiful day, driving on the link, trying to conquer the world, slowly but surely, good things happening... what's up twitterverse??

Loved Neha Dhupia's afterthought: "Saw a shooting star today, didn't wish for anything. Don't know if I was slow or just content. I hope it's the latter!"

We wish too Neha!

Don't mess with Mallika!

It's amazing what people tweet! Rahul Khanna and his toes! Be warned -- it's not a pretty sight and it's not just my opinion!

The future thinking award goes to Imran Khan's fans though. Check out what someone tried to sell to Imran Khan.

You can also check out Lara Dutta tweeting her fans -- "Give our boys at Davis Cup some love!" just before the Davis Cup matches this week!.

Looks like she is sending some to Mr Bhupathi irrespective of what the fans and the cynics may think!

In case you were hoping for Mallika Sherawat's autograph, this is a scary time to be asking it. Sample what a fan got!.

There's buzz everywhere and talent too! Check out Dia Mirza showcasing her painting.

Or go green, blue and beige with Shilpa Shetty and Shane Warne, or take a morning walk with Sameera Reddy. Now that's a sight for sore eyes!
