After Karan Johar, Priyanka Chopra and Preity Zinta, now Bollywood Superstar Shah Rukh Khan has joined social networking site Twitter.
“Being extremely shy, I never thought I would be here (on Twitter). But my friend Karan Johar insisted that I should learn to share my life,” Shah Rukh posted on his Twitter page.
“Thanks everyone, this is really sweet…didn’t expect such a warm welcome. Love to you all,” he added.
The superstar was hardly seen on big screen in 2009 except in Billu, and explaining the reason behind his absence, he wrote: “Injury has kept me away from making more films. Will work my back off to be around more… the shoulder feels strong and so do I.”
In February last year, Shah Rukh underwent an arthroscopic surgery for acute pain in his left shoulder at the Breach Candy hospital in south Mumbai.
He is now gearing up for the release of his much-talked about film My Name Is Khan which also stars Kajol.
Releasing Feb 12, the film’s story revolves around Rizwan Khan (Shah Rukh) who suffers from Asperger syndrome, a form of autism. Rizwan falls in love with a single mother Mandira (Kajol) who lives in San Francisco. Rizwan is detained by authorities at Los Angeles International Airport, mistaking his disability for “suspicious” behaviour.
Right now Shah Rukh is enjoying his holiday with wife and children.
“Kids and life calling…watching Tim Burton’s 9 (animated fantasy film directed by Shane Acker) with them…last holiday…so up late…catch up later…,” he wrote in his latest posting.
