    Oscar Awards 2012 winners: Bollywood tweets

    Bollywood wrote about the 84th Academy Awards winners on social networking site Twitter

Amitabh Bachchan did not tweet but wrote about the winning film The Artist on his blog before the Oscars. He said, “I watched a lovely film ‘The Artist’ via the UFO set up in the house and it was a delight to see a black and white, silent movie in February of 2012!!
