The main purpose of tweeting in Bollywood, as we can imagine, is to stay on the radar of movie fans and try to look your best. Actors and actresses are promoting their latest film and announcing the opening of new restaurants, clothing lines and gyms on Twitter. Tweeting is not limited to just promotions where stars comment on social issues, express their political views and even share personal experiences with their fans.
There is Priyanka Chopra who actually gives advice to her fans about recovery, Lisa Ray who wrote on Twitter about her fight against melanoma and her successful recovery. The recent plane crash at Mangalore Airport prompted Amitabh Bachchan to post his grief on a microblogging website.
Tweeting is not limited to young Bollywood. Experienced actor Shammi Kappor is a huge Twitter fan and sees tweets often. She was in the news recently asking star Deepika Padukone (also on Twitter) to meet up on Twitter. The youngest celebrity on Twitter is Amitabh Bachchan himself, who managed to gather 39,000 followers in just three days after joining. Also, Salman Khan, who currently has around 148,489 followers, and Raja Khan (Shah Rukh) with a net 394,736 followers.
They say that "any ad is good advertising" in show business. In this crazy world of celebrity, thanks to Twitter, the Bollywood mobile concept has become a popular way for movie fans and celebrities to reach out to each other.
