Cricket superstar Sachin Tendulkar is finally on Twitter, and one of his first tweets was Bollywood related. Sachin was spending time with ‘3 Idiots’ filmmaker Vidhu Vinod Chopra and celeb photographer Atul Kasbekar. And he tweeted, "Hanging with vinod chopra and @atulkasbekar…3 more idiots ???" Sachin added, "Vinod Chopra has a script called ‘ferrari ki sawaari’… Just heard it, sounds awesome.."
What’s more awesome (though expected) is that Sachin has got over 17000 followers in a matter of 11 hours of being on Twitter. Sachin himself is following just two people for now, cricketer Zaheer Khan and Atul Kasbekar.
Among Sachin’s followers are Bollywood stars. Sameera Reddy was one of the first to welcome him. She tweeted, "Twitter got more awesommmee! Let’s welcome the undisputed king of cricket! We Love u Sachin! Sachin Tendulkar"
Deepika Padukone was next with, "The only record left for him 2 break is max number of followers :-) welcome the one and only and my favourite Sachin Tendulkar."
Arjun Rampal added, "The original rock star is here welcome Sachin Tendulkar. Give him all the love he deserves."
Arbaaz Khan gave Sachin a shout-out in Marathi, "Amcha sachin tendulkar aala re ! Welcome india’s favorite son on twitter !!!
Shilpa Shetty hads this to say, "Finally on twitter, the god of cricket himself. A big welcome shout for Sachin Tendulkar himself. Spread the word."
Riteish Deshmukh: "Sachin Tendulkar is on Twitter. We want him to beat Ashton Kutcher hollow. Spread the word. Follow Sachin."
Rahul Bose: "Welcome Sachin. What a pleasure!"
Sachin’s getting Twitter love alright, and we think he’ll have more followers than even the B’wood stars pretty soon.
