Shekhar Kapur

The newest thing on Twitter is to endorse a social cause. Shekhar Kapur is enraged at the verdict of the Bhopal tragedy. He now wants to start a movement to repeal an act that the government had put in place to help the 1985 gas victims.

“The Govt shld repeal that act now due to it’s abject failure to support the victims,” he tweets. Karan Johar has been spreading the message of love through his followers’ timelines and is now starting a lovers’ club. He tweets, “Friendship has empowered me...completed me and cushioned me in my sibling free status zone....more power to friends who fill the void. Join my Lover’s Club!!”

Meanwhile, Vivek Oberoi is reaching out to needy kids: “With Project HOPE We’re building a huge school project for the most underprivileged tamil children-1000 kids,” he tweeted.
