Hrithik Roshan has got heart. He tweets of his Harper's Bazaar first anniversary issue, 'Thanks guys on the feedback on Harpers! Katrina is fabulous. Missed my thumb though! Art team must've thought it ugly:) forgive, forget!'

Wow, now -- that's a superstar reaction you don't think of, especially when the magazine decides to edit your third thumb!

Imagine what it's like to live next door to Preity Zinta.

The star says in her tweets, 'Ok tweeple, I am going to my neighbours house for some gup shup! will chat later!'

When quizzed by tweeples, she confirms, 'My neighbour is more than a celebrity actually. When I run out of milk, sugar, chillies or tea... Neighbour zindabad!" 

Wow. Imagine your doorbell ringing and Zinta standing there, asking for a cup of sugar!

Amongst her other tweets this week, was this nice one: 'Just got back from a party Tina and Anil Ambani hosted for the film industry. Met almost all my friends. Ash looked stunning and the party rocked!'

One actress to another -- that's sweet and smiley!

But the week was full of tweets on three people: Sachin, as well as SRK-Saif and Shahid for their super acts at the Filmfare awards last weekend.

Lara Dutta was amongst the first to tweet: 'SRK and Saif extremely entertaining at Filmfare! Watch out for Shahid Kapoor's superb performance!'

Sameera Reddy tweeted, 'The filmfare awards were simply outstanding! SRK and Saifu rocked!'

Even Siddharth, who anchored the show, wore his heart on his sleeve when he said of his current date -- Shruti Haasan. 'Shruti looked gorgeous. SRK and Saif and their blatant fearlessness was the essence of the show. And thank god for the modest Karan Johar. He was fabulous.'

Of Sachin Tendulkar, Ritesh Deshmukh said in Marathi manoos style, 'HISTORY has been created by the Master. In future people will always remember where they were when Sachin scored 200 runs. Atyanth abhimaan.'

Farhan Akhtar, who managed to tweet eloquently in the middle of his Karthik Calling Karthik movie tour madness, 'India is blessed with brilliance as great as Sachin's... He makes us all very proud.'

Imran Khan tweeted wryly, 'I go out of town for a couple of days and look what happens! Sachin scores 200, Indian hockey team wins 4-1... I should go away more often!'

But Kunal Kapoor said it best: 'I finally know what god really looks like!! He is about 5"5, Maharashtrian and plays cricket!! Tendulkar bapa morya.'

Kapoor's tweets range in wit, humour and sheer observation. Sample this: 'In some parts of the country, there is a tradition in which women beat up men on Holi. Glad I'm born in Mumbai. I'd get quite a thrashing!!'

Or this one: 'Is it just me or are the mosquitoes actually getting smarter? They hide when they are spotted, and I just came across one that pretended to be dead!!'

Or even this: 'Love Sundays anywhere in the world its family time. Sunday Roast in London... Poker at night with friends....I am all in!!!!'

Talking of funny antics! Check out veteran twitter Mallika's latest picture update. More tongue, less cheek this.

Another nice picture is that of Shammi Kapoor, who joined twitter this week.

Then there is Shah Rukh Khan's cute picture with his son Aryaan.

Even this supposed Tarantino pose of SRK with daughter Suhani will make you fall in love with the superstar all over again. And this time, with his kids too!
