If social networking brought stars closer to their fans, it also put some of them in big trouble. Apart from the usual mutual-appreciation-society that pops up before their movie releases, Bollywood stars also showed their absurd side on Twitter.com. Koimoi.com look at some of the notable tweets of 2011…
Bhairavi Goswami’s Jibes At The Bachchans
In a desperate bid for attention, starlet Bhairvai Goswami tweeted, “Nauseating 2 read superstars givg interviews abt wanting a girl baby whn she has gone 2 Bangkok to an IVF clinic which specializes in boy babies. Height of hypocrisy. They knw damn well its a boy, aftr all she has to produce a male heir at any cost – Typical UP mentality, no wonder that state has such high female foeticide.”
Hinting at the Bachchans (Aishwarya Rai was pregnant then), Bhairavi soon became the talk of town for her “Breaking News” tweet. Now that Aishwarya and Abhishek are parents to a bonny baby girl, Bhairavi has her lips sealed.
Bipasha Basu Accused Of Child Labour
In an effort to show how mortal she is, Bipasha Basu posted a picture of two girls tying her shoelaces and tweeted, “I need to learn to tie shoe laces ASAP! Embarassed that I can’t! No patience.. grrrrr! Promise I am not spoilt! Will learn soon.” One look at the picture and you’ll not be surprised to know that Bips was accused of child labour and the matter was blown out of proportion. The disgruntled heroine refused to apologize but removed the accusatory picture.
Too Much Cricket For Sonakshi Sinha
Cricket fever caught up with Sonakshi Sinha during the Cricket World Cup earlier this year. A harmless pic tweeted by the heroine offended many of her Pakistani fans. But in true Dabangg style, Sona shrugged it off and asked fans to take it with a pinch of salt.
Get Well Soon Salman Khan
For all his random, unconnected and weird tweets, Salman Khan does have an unquestioned fan following even on the social networking site. When it was rumoured that the actor was to undergo an angioplasty, the sorrow of his fans knew no bounds. But it was finally revealed that the hero was suffering a nerve disorder, trigeminal neuralgia. Before leaving for the US for his surgery, he tweeted, “Challo c u guys . On my was to fix the short circut in my nerve , take care n hope u like body guard.”
Shirish Kunder’s Jibe At Shah Rukh Khan’s Ra.One
The rumoured tense relations between Farah Khan and Shah Rukh Khan weren’t eased when Farah’s husband, Shirish Kunder tweeted, “I just heard a 150 Cr firework fizzle”. With mixed reports about Ra.One, this wasn’t exactly the smartest move.
Ram Gopal Varma’s Praise For Amitabh Bachchan
Ram Gopal Varma is like a juggernaut on Twitter. So when he tweeted, “Just watched Bbuddah nd am. angry with bacchan that hes such a ch***iya not to do films like this nd am such a l**d not to realize this” on watching Amitabh Bachchan, few were surprised. After all, RGV is used to shooting from the hip.
