Social networking site Twitter is definitely the place to be for Bollywood fans who want to stay in the know, with an increasing number of stars, including Abhishek Bachchan, Shahid Kapoor, Deepika Padukone and Imran Khan taking advantage of the popular site to communicate with fans and each other.
The brightest star in the Twitterverse right now is none other than Shahrukh Khan. The Baadshah of Bollywood, long-known to have a love of gadgets and technology, was a late-bloomer to the world of tweeting, but has more than made up for it with the juicy and genuine quality of his messages to fans. One of SRK’s quirkier tweets so far has involved proving his identity on his as-yet unverified account:
lots of u still wondering its me or not. let me prove it to u guys…i love u kkkkiran. see nobody else could say it like this.its me 100% !
This unique sense of humour pervades most of SRK’s messages — whether he is quoting ancient poems and mantras about living well:
success is never final.failure is never fatal.courage is to do wot u r afraid of. be afraid of failure so much that u get courage to succeed
inviting followers into contributing jokes or love stories, or sharing glimpses into life as a family man who happens to also be a superstar:
the bad news is that i have caught a cold. it was passing me by and instead of minding my own business i made a grab for it .
now going. daughter awoke with a bad dream. she is too sweet. use to think when my cricket team wins the players r allowed a bubble bath.
Recently, SRK casually posted a couple of tweets referring to his upcoming superhero-gamer film Ra-One:
ra.one is short form for random access version one. reads like it is written. RAONE. its a movie about gaming and superheroes and bad guys.
no aish is not in the film. the final cast will be announced soon…waiting for just some last bit of casting. yes it does read as in ravan
– debunking the widespread internet rumour that Aishwarya Rai Bachchan would be making a special appearance in the film.
So if not Aishwarya, then who? Looks like @iamsrk is one to follow to get the inside info firsthand!
