    SRK to share life on Twitter
    IANS 4 January 2010, 12:00am

    After Karan Johar, Priyanka Chopra and Preity Zinta, now Bollywood Superstar Shah Rukh Khan has joined social networking site

    "Being extremely shy, I never thought I would be here (on Twitter). But my friend Karan Johar insisted that I should learn to share my life," Shah Rukh posted on his Twitter page.

    "Thanks everyone, this is really sweet...didn't expect such a warm welcome. Love to you all," he added.

    The superstar was hardly seen on big screen in 2009 except in "Billu", and explaining the reason behind his absence, he wrote: "Injury has kept me away from making more films. Will work my back off to be around more... the shoulder feels strong and so do I."

    In February last year, Shah Rukh underwent an arthroscopic surgery for acute pain in his left shoulder at the Breach Candy hospital in south Mumbai.

    He is now gearing up for the release of his much-talked about film "My Name Is Khan" which also stars Kajol.

    Releasing Feb 12, the film's story revolves around Rizwan Khan (Shah Rukh) who suffers from Asperger syndrome, a form of autism. Rizwan falls in love with a single mother Mandira (Kajol) who lives in San Francisco. Rizwan is detained by authorities at Los Angeles International Airport, mistaking his disability for "suspicious" behaviour.

    Right now Shah Rukh is enjoying his holiday with wife and children.

    "Kids and life calling...watching Tim Burton's '9' (animated fantasy film directed by Shane Acker) with them...last holiday...so up late...catch up later...," he wrote in his latest posting.

    SRK's followers on Twitter cross 17400 in 24 hours

    The usually reclusive Shah Rukh Khan joined Twitter early Sunday morning at 2.38 am under the ID, iamsrk. Almost immediately, Twitterverse went berserk. Everyone from Riteish Deshmukh to Abhishek Bachchan, Farhan Akhtar and Vivek Oberoi fell over themselves welcoming him.


    And SRK's best buddy, filmmaker Karan Johar even tweeted after Shah Rukh crossed the 10000-mark in 12 hours, "twitterverse in a tizz!!! iamsrk will am sure enjoy the twitterpower and add it to it in his own way...."

    Do it, SRK!
    It was KJo who finally convinced SRK to join Twitter on January 3 after months of persuasion. How did he do it? Says Karan, "I feel as if I am the unofficial brand ambassador of Twitter as I convinced so many people to join. Whereas Shah Rukh is concerned, I would get many comments on Twitter everyday and about 80 per cent of them would ask me to convey a message to SRK. I finally told him there were millions of people out there who had so much of love for him.

    Pyaar kiye jaa...
    Karan adds that till now Shah Rukh wasn't keen on joining as he has so much happening in his life. "Essentially Shah Rukh is a very shy person. Also, he doesn't have too much time. Being a part of Twitter is like being in a relationship where you have to be faithful to your love (Twitter) and give it time every day. It's your lover. When so many people love you, you make sure you deliver. Now SRK will be a committed lover on Twitter. He crossed the 10000 follower mark in half a day which shows how popular he is. Now that he has opened his heart, Shah Rukh will feel their love."

    He continues,"So finally yesterday Shah Rukh said okay. He understood the modalities and we (Shah Rukh, Karan and Kajal Anand) created his page."

    The next person who KJo is persuading to get onto Twitter is SRK's My Name Is Khan heroine Kajol. "Kajol is very particular about keeping her personal life private so I don't know if I will be able to convince her but I am definitely trying hard."

    Khan's tweet street
    Bye now... lemme figure out if i do really snore or not...will keep a recorder on tonite... God... so much for being shy and private. (at 4 am today)

    Love conquers all things...except poverty and toothache...Mae West...i think even snoring is a problem love can't conquer. (at 3.50 am today)

    film release coming up. will have lots of public speaking. my first rule of public speaking...if u don't strike oil in 3 mins... stop boring ! (at 2.30 am today)

    the first tweet: hi everyone. being extremely shy i never thought i would be here. but my friend @kjohar25 insisted that i should learn to share my life. (at 2.38 am on January 3)

    Shahrukh Khan Twitter attracts thousands
    Within 24 hours of joining Twitter Sharukh Khan had 10,000 followers, proving SRK is still 'King Khan'

    That is how Bollywood actor Shahrukh Khan clumsily said goodnight to his fans on the second night in his new virtual home, that is, his new Twitter home: @iamsrk.

    King Khan may be one of the most powerful actors in Indian cinema, but the 44 year-old actor had to be convinced by his friend, the media savvy film producer Karan Johar, to enter the Twitterverse. Nevertheless his awkward first foray into the virtual world has endeared him to thousands of fans immediately.

    “It is really a very satisfying way of communicating with the world outside your immediate circle. I’ve been persuading all my friends to get on Twitter. Shahrukh finally relented. Within 24 hours he had 10,000 followers,” Johar told Times of India. And he confirmed on his Twitter page @Kjohar25, "for all those asking....yes!!! it is shahrukh on twitterverse...@iamsrk."

    Other Bollywood celebrities active on Twitter are Gul Panag, Priyanka Chopra, Imran Khan and Abhishek Bachchan.

    By: Subhadeep Bhattacharjee

    It is only day two for Shahrukh Khan on Twitter and if early indications are anything to go by Shahrukh isn't on Twitter just to write a few posts promoting his movies. King Khan is willing to take stands on the happenings in the country. In his latest tweet Shahrukh wrote “Don't stress over political parties...for them if 2 wrongs, don't make a right..(hey always try a third.”


    Buzz up!He was replying to a tweet by renowned journalist Barkha Dutt where she wrote “Sessions court asks Soren to appear in relation to a murder case. Guess makes no diff to pol parties who have supported him, past or present” The My Name Is Khan star made a earth shattering debut on Twitter having attracted more than 23000 followers in just two days
