Mumbai: Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan is a hit on social networking site Twitter – he registered Saturday night and already has over 20,300 followers.
Shah Rukh revealed on Twitter that he did it at the behest of his best friend Karan Johar.
“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. Shah Rukh finally relented. Within 24 hours he had 10,00 followers,” Karan told IANS.
The star is already hooked hopelessly to Twitter and hopes to establish a personal rapport with his fans and movie-watchers in time for the release of “My Name Is Khan”.
By joining Twitter Shah Rukh has joined celebs like Priyanka Chopra, Abhishek Bachchan, Imran Khan and Karan Johar who are regular on the social networking site.
