Twitter Alert

June 12, 2010

This week, Karan Johar welcomes lyricist Javed Akhtar and singer Asha Bhonsle on Twitter. “Javed Akhtar adds to Twitter humour and perspective. Follow the man and his cartloads of wisdom,” Johar tweeted. Welcoming Bhonsle later, he posted, “The legend and the voice that nurtured my love for the movies, Asha Bhonsle is in the house.”

Saif Ali Khan had earlier ruled out any possibility of being on Twitter when he told IANS, “I would not be on Twitter because I do not feel the need. I do not want to share my thoughts”, but Amitabh Bachchan seems to have convinced Aamir Khan to join the micro-blogging site. “At dinner with Aamir ... coaxing him to come on Twitter,” Amitabh posted.

Jemima Khan wrote a article about Twitter for The Sunday Times, describing the advice she gave her ex-husband Imran Khan. “I set up a Twitter page for my Luddite ex-husband Imran, thinking he might politically mobilise Pakistan’s computer-literate youth. I keep advising him to chuck in the odd crickety tweet — nobody wants only to be preached at or made to feel stupid by incomprehensible dogma.”

Justin Bieber

Wow! Over three million (followers). I am from a town of just 30,000 people. This is insane. I truly have the greatest fans in the world. Thank you.

Abhishek Bachchan

For all the husbands and wives, never question your wife’s judgement. After all, look who she married.

Karan Johar

Success is relative. Failure should not be your relative.

Sania Mirza

Had not imagined I would be playing after marriage in the first place and here I am at yet another tournament. Hope this answers everyone’s concerns.

Shabana Azmi

Women and men are different. Not better, not worse. Solutions to all problems should be sought to be resolved from both a female and male point of view.

Shah Rukh Khan

Detachment sometimes is the best form of appreciation. Sometimes, things too close make us lose sight of their actual form and beauty.

Shahid Afridi

Many people (are) asking why Malik is included in team. (It is) on promise of not repeating old mistakes which every human does.

Jemima Khan

Britain’s streets are no safer. The Taliban still exist. Hatred against the West has increased (and) thousands have been killed.

Chris Brown

Rome was not built in a day but it was burned down in a day. (It is) all about choices.

Asha Bhonsle

Writing my autobiography in mother tongue Marathi. (It) will be translated in Hindi and English. Releasing (it) next year.

samit | 11 years ago | Reply Hi Now the mother of all - the melody queen herself has also joined the microblog. Seems a bit strange knowing her extreme reclusive nature. She does not even face TV camera but came to Twit. Anyways great news for the fans for the mega star who never faces the fans ( I guess that is the reason she is where she is - reached the pinacle and always sayed).
