What’s Bollywood tweeting about? Koimoi.com brings you the top news from Bollywood’s twitter stream:
Shahid Kapoor & His Doomed Girl-gang
Shahid Kapoor and Salman Khan are infamous on Twitter.com for the mind boggling spelling errors they make and the random things they tweet on. As if being the butt of jokes wasn’t enough, the slip of one letter in Shahid’s tweet had a hilarious reaction on Twitter. “Premier in the evening my girlgand deciding what I should wear :)” tweeted the star, referring to his “girlgang” immediately receiving a spate of responses from the smart alecs on Twitter.
Though Sasha deleted the tweet in a hurry, ‘girlgand’ was soon trending in Mumbai. And with the lukewarm reactions to Mausam the following day, the word rose from its ashes. As Emaan Khan tweeted, “@Shahidkapoor misspelled girlGANG as girlGAND on Twitter & that my friend might be the most entertaining thing about Mausam!”
Russell Peters’ Disdain For Bollywood
So Russell Peters said that he doesn’t like Bollywood. Okay. And he thinks Aishwarya Rai Bachchan is a terrible actress. Fine. But if you looked at the way people reacted to his statements, you’d think the Indo-Canadian stand-up comedian had committed a cardinal sin. When Russell claimed to have never seen a Bollywood film, people wondered why he acted in Speedy Singhs, a film produced by Akshay Kumar. “I don’t need to eat shit in order to know that I don’t like it,” he replied.
No More Tiger
The demise of Mansoor Ali Khan Pataudi darkened the mood of the industry. The news of his death sent shock waves through the industry, with many expressing their condolences to Sharmila Tagore, Soha, Saba and Saif Ali Khan. Commentator Harsha Bhogle’s tweet was the most poignant, “What kind of macabre party is He organising taking away the most joyous of our men. Shammi Kapoor now Tiger Pataudi.”
