There are many reasons celebrities trend on Twitter - birthdays, deaths, film releases, gossip etc. But it is Shahid Kapoor's faux pas on the very public platform that makes him trend here.
Shahid Kapoor poses for the lensmen.
Shahid Kapoor tweeted his support for boxer MC Mary Kom, who is competing at the London Olympics. However, the problem was that his enthusiastic tweet on Sunday was for Maricom and not Mary Kom, much to Twitterati's amusement. The fact that he used the term 'bust them up' didn't quite help.
