Express January 23, 2011

Pakistani actor and India’s new heartthrob Ali Zafar has cleared the air with his recent tweet, which openly declared that he has been bestowed with the honour of singing this year’s World Cup Song.

The excited singer tweets to his fans about the offer, “That’s right! I have been given the honour to sing, write and compose the World Cup song.”

Strangely enough, it was Atif Aslam who just a few days ago tweeted that he was completely oblivious to the happenings the industry, “Am I too slow or the media is too fast, don’t even know about the world cup song.” Although Aslam seems to be a late member to the tweeting world, his followers have grown tremendously in a matter of weeks and the singer has already drawn 2,721 followers on the micro-blogging site.

However, local stars are not the only ones communicating with their fans; Bollywood veteran Shabana Azmi also took the micro blogging site to thank all her friends and fans for their support towards her Mijwan benefit. Azmi has taken serious steps to alleviate gender discrimination and encourage female education in the Mijwan village. “All the stars walking the ramp for my Mijwan benefit are giving me such good vibes — a big hug to all and to Manish Malhotra’s indefatigable energy,” Azmi tweeted on Friday night.

Other encouraging messages call on international celebrities from across the globe to reunite and strengthen familial ties through their personalised tweets.

Paris Hilton decided to spread the joy with her sentimental messages to her family, “Love my aunt’s both very much! All sisters get in an argument sometimes, its normal. Love my family!”
