The Bollywood Tweet Diary
The whole of Bollywood seems excited by the Indian Premier League.
Bachchan Jr has come up with one suggestion I am sure all will agree with.
"Think the government should make a new law. Work has to stop by 2pm during the IPL season. What say guys? Too much excitement!"
Even Preity Zinta, who lost her first game had much to tweet, "Screamed so much last night! Throat is hurting & feels sore now! So no talking.. only tweeting :-) Cannot help it! I get too excited!"
She even got the twitter world to comment on her new avatar: "So did u all like my Salwaar kameez or not? Could not jump 2 much in it as i had 2 be more lady like though :-) Ting! Dimple is flashing!"
Riteish Deshmukh is already in a dilemma! He tweets, "I am supporting MUMBAI INDIANS n SRK's KKR.... two teams for me. Don't ask me if both clash whom will I support."
The lucky dude even took a chopper home with his co-actor Jacqueline Fernandez to watch the first IPL match on time. Check out their wide grins!
Though Uday Chopra seems to be off IPL, he's playing tweet pranks due to coz "family busy watching match friends too...so bored and coming up with strange spellings for my name!"
He admitted earlier, "I think I must be the only Indian who doesn't follow cricket...everyone's on IPL fever and I'm like...blank"

Shilpa cheers for SRK
Shilpa Shetty seems to be in incredibly high spirits despite her team's loss in the IPL to Mumbai Indians.
The girl has a ton of sporting spirit. On her loss: "On r way to ROYALTY! Opening our new club tonight, Didn't feel like we lost..., gonna celebrate!:)"
To fellow IPL team owner Shah Rukh Khan on their first win, she wished, "It's been long Shahrukh hoping to c a smile on ure face!! Playin well, fingers crossed"
And then this one on Sunday, when SRK's team, Kolkata Knight Riders won their second match: "Nearly missed my flt tryin to catch KKR win:)congrats Shahrukh, Jai and Juhi. U guys r on a roll:) made it to my flt now, headed home."

Imran and Deepika's spat!
Guess who got the cool Imran Khan riled up so much so that he tweeted furiously 12 hours ago about Break Ke Baad -- his new film!
"First day of rehearsal with @deepikatweeting ... And she's late! Anyone feel like reminding her that we're waiting?"
"Have just been informed that she's getting her hair done for the film."
An hour later: "She has arrived! Time to work."
And then two hours later -- a diplomatic one: "Great reading with @dontpanic1979 @deepikatweeting and @shahanagoswami. It's starting to come together nicely."
In case, you what wondered what Deepika Padukone had to say in return -- check this out!
@1mrankhan I've packed up at 7am and woken up at 11am to colour my hair for OUR film which I consider work for OUR film. and these things take time. I'm not just faffing around.. so RELAX!!"
Tons of fireworks here eh? Watch this space for moreJ

Witty Mallika Sherawat had me in splits this week!
Her tweet is a worthy one: "I feel like a puppet today on set. They're giving me all these crazy new lines to say;)"
I don't blame her. Usually her parts have to do more with her clothing than dialogue!

Kunal Kapoor's 'Only Boxers' campaign
Miss Universe Lara Dutta seems to be a girl after my own heart.
After being front row at the Louis Vuiitton showing, the actor stated: "I so want one of LV's reworked Speedys for Fall! Exquisite! And I'm sure frightfully expensive! Incentive to work hard!!"
She even posted a picture of her with Chinese pop star Fan Bingbing and Yves Carcelles in Paris. Stunning, I say!
By the way, Kunal has also started a boxer campaign -- his reason is super simple. "Is it hot or is it hot!!! And summer has not even begun... I'm heading out only in my boxers from hereon!!"
And then followed it up with: "Thank u for ur overwhelming support to my 'ONLY BOXERS' campaign. Feel incredibly grateful. Together v can and v will change the world!!"
Now, this campaign we want proof and pictures are you listening Kunal?

Just in case, you wanna know what Shahid Kapoor's is upto, check out his tweets.
He's busy learning guitar, driving his bike even though it's sweaty, and starting work on his dad's new production Mausam.
Did you know he prepared for his MJ tribute for Filmfare in four days? Or that he had a slip-disc about a year back and hasn't told anybody so far?
But this is one star knows how to keep it real. "Wats up people its a hot day but a bright n shiny day I luv da sun actually! Not so much an air con person neva had one in my home for my 1st 20 yrs actually so I guess its conditioning."
You know what's strange? Despite all rumours, he has co-stars Amrita Rao and Genelia D'Souza as people he follows. Wonder why Priyanka Chopra is missing though?

And the best tweeter is...
The best tweeter of this week award will have to go to Shah Rukh Khan.
This Scorpio tweets just like his characters he plays. Funny, ironic and straight from the heart. This week's been a killer in terms of his quality of tweets!
He began this week with this gem! "Thinking of implementing the women's bill in films too. 1/3 unit should be girls. too many hairy sweaty guys on sets. not good for creativity"
Followed it up with a father-like, "off now to do some hugging and trying to be a part of kids games. they have been ignoring me since exams got over... will just set them rite."
And a nostalgic: "son off for a holiday with his school. just dropped him. how fast they grow up. seems like yesterday he was a throbbing dot in mommy's tummy!"
A totally naughty one: "my mother in law has given some fielding tips which she says i need to pass onto the team. will mention it to the team for a laugh tom. ha ha".
Or a winning team's winning leader after their opening-win against Deccan Chargers: "dada said so sweetly...aapko smile karte hue dekhkar achha lagta hai. am so happy my team loves me so...and i do the same."
SRK, we love you too!
