A quick update on what the stars are saying in 140 characters.
Shahid Kapoor tweets, "Finally saw tere bin laden loved it fell off the chair laughing ... Chilled at a friends n had some intense discussion on films ..."
Eleven hours later, Priyanka Chopra tweets, "Saw Tere bin laden last night!! Ooooo maaaa gaaawwwdd!! Uber super!! I fell off my chair laughing!Kudos to the team and ESP ali zafar! Faab!"
We are trying hard not to read too much into reports of the Kapoor- Chopra romance being back on track, but when two stars say the same things, about the same film around the same time, we don't think we are reading more than we should.
Just good neighbours and co-stars? We don't think so!
Celebrating Big B's Revival!
Sr Bachchan is an emotional tweeter this week. With many reasons.
Firstly, "August 2nd of every year after 1982, wishes me Happy re-birthday ! Was clinically dead after 'Coolie' accident in hospital. Revived ! So family wishes me Happy Birthday ! Spoke about it, years ago, now many wish me. Thank you. But thank you Docs at Breach Candy....and ... and thank you the people of my country, people from other countries, people i did not even know .. your prayers saved me ..!! This is a debt that I carry to my grave, for it is one that I shall never be able to repay - the affection, penance and prayer from all Even today 28 years later, I meet people in different parts of the hemisphere who remind me of their offerings of prayer for my life !! I do not know what I did to deserve this love . But I shall never fail in trying to live up to the expectations that gave me such ..
And then he followed it up with his show Kaun Banega Crorepati (KBC), which starts screening on the small screen on his actual birthday (October 11):
"KBC lines just opened at 9 PM IST and Sony just rang to inform me they had 1.5 lakh sms in first 5 mins. !! Phone calls 2 B compiled !! OH ! Boy ! This is scary ! Need to get back and start rehearsing to deliver what these numbers indicate and expect !! KBC you sweety ! AND !! Tweeter People of the Tweet World, Thawank Tyou Tfor Tgetting Tme Tto 3 Tlakhs Twfollowlers !! Twouched !! Sony on line again re:KBC, number of sms has gone up to 3 lakhs !! Oiyee ! KBC competing with 'followers' on Twitter. 3 lakh here too ! Sony again re:KBC ... "by 10:30 PM Indian Standard Time(IST) the number of sms has gone to 7 lakhs !!" They say 'this is cool' !!
Son Abhishek messaged, "Happy 2nd birthday day pa @SrBachchan!!! and on your 2nd b-day you hit 3 lacs!!! Yay!! Now I want my back present!!!
Hrithik Roshan after much silence on his twitter account says, "Hello tweeple!! Giving up smoking today! Any of u disgusting smokers wanna join me?? Love to the rest of u non smokers!! :):)"
Karan Johar tweets after giving the 'K' much needed screen and media time, "Ekta and I have finally bid farewell to the alphabet K...our apologies to K...but your services are no longer required!!"
Bipasha Basu says, "Brought up by parents who insisted tht v shud read newspaper!So depressing 2 strt ur day wth death,kiling,rape,corruption inflation!Damn!"
Amitabh Bachchan to Priyanka Chopra, "Arre ! Kitna gym kariyega !! Complex de rahi hain aap hum sabko ! Kal hi badha deta hun apni timings ko !! Love. Priyanka Chopra replied tongue in cheek, "Sir late jawab ke liye maafi.Lekin Kuch logon ko gym ke bahut chakkar lagane padte hai.aap jaise fit rehne ke liye.I'm one such."
But Jr Bachchan as always takes it away with his honest musings. "Seeing all the lovely trailers on TV for upcoming films cant help but feel jealous! wish i could do all those films!! great work being done. But if i did all of them am pretty sure that i would single handedly be responsible for people not seeing movies at all!!! i know, i know. have already contributed to that enough in my own way."
And love this one straight from the heart: "Photo sessions exist to annihilate whatever little confidence an actor has!! Especially if you look like me and see the results. I HATE THEM."
Best friend Ritesh Deshmukh follows suit wearing his heart on his sleeve and tissues too whilst watching an English film on the DVD! "My Sister's Keeper- roh roh ke behaal hogaya!"
Mallika Maange more!
Mallika Sherawat is on some spree! Her replies to her tweet followers are getting wittier and naughtier.

Chinnu asked her, "y dont u do a superwoman movie?i think u ll look grt in a superwoman attire:)" and she answered tongue in cheek, "i already play that role in real life;) jk! lol xo"

Reccos of the week
Aamir Khan says, "Listening to the sound track of Aisha. Its great! Amit Trivedi is most talented, and great lyrics as well by Javed Saheb."
Bachchan Junior says, "Spent the afternoon with ashutosh at a recording for Khele hum jeejaan se. Tried to convince him to join Twitter.... I failed!!! But there's always tomorrow....!"
Bipasha Basu says, "Udaan hs a soul!Mst watch. 4 all!♥Hope ppl stop encouraging shallow flms only n see real content too equally!"
Shruti Haasan: "I love QUEEN in the morning!! no...not the queen...i don't know her...the band ..truest biggest love in my heart!! KILLER QUEEN!!!"
It's true that Farhan Akhtar is a fabulous singer, director, producer and actor. But on twitter, he shows how the acorn doesn't fall from the tree.
Following close in father Javed Akhtar's footsteps, he tweets, two beautiful couplets:
"Dil ne socha kuch kahoon... zubaan ne socha kuch dil ki sunoon... is taqaluf mein donon maare gaye... cest la vie! (taqaluf. formality. what we should not experience with each other.)"
"Waqt kab ka guzar gaya... mausam kab ke badal gaye... shaq hone laga hai ki aur intezaar bewajai hai. ye imtihan nahin toh kya hai."
Another facet of the very talented Mr Akhtar comes to light! One we hope to see in action more often!
