Shah Rukh Khan does it, so do Salman and Abhishek. Even as the rest of Bollywood goes gaga over Twitter, Ranbir Kapoor says that he does not understand the hype surrounding the micro-blogging website.
Though the heartthrob is a member of the website, his first and last tweet came some eight months ago and Ranbir says that the popularity of the website is a mystery to him.
"It's a mystery to me. I don't want to tell people 'I am eating now', 'Now I am walking to the bathroom'. I don't understand the need to share these boring details of my daily routine with the whole world. I don't think I am interested in Twitter that much," said Ranbir who was in the capital for a product launch of an electronics label.
The actor who has had a string of hits the past year, including
Wake Up Sid
Ajab Prem Ki Gajab Kahani
, says that he would prefer his work to speak for him instead of tweeting.
"I prefer to let my work speak for myself and I like to communicate with my fans through the kind of films that I do," said the actor.
Meanwhile the actor's ex-girlfriend Deepika Padukone is a regular on Twitter and had recently met up with Shammi Kapoor for a coffee date after being invited by the veteran actor through the website.
Padukone was surprised to know that the 78-year-old, who is also the uncle of Ranbir, was on Twitter, which has become the the favourite haunt of Bollywood stars.
