Twitter’s headquarters has welcomed many renowned public personalities in the past to share stories about how they use Twitter to connect with their followers and the world. As one of the most-followed users in India, Shah Rukh Khan (@iamsrk) uses Twitter to inspire and connect with his fans in a personal way while sharing behind-the-scenes moments from his life.

During today’s Q&A session in our San Francisco office, the cast of @HNY answered questions via Tweets from all over the world. Several members of the movie were present to share stories, including Shah Rukh Khan (@iamsrk), Deepika Padukone (@deepikapadukone), Abhishek Bachchan (@juniorbachchan), Farah Khan (@TheFarahKhan), Boman Irani (@bomanirani) and Vivaan Shah (@TheVivaanShah).
