(By Abdullah Ejaz) – This week’s Twitter buffet is served.
From now on, we’ve got your entire week on the go at one place as far as entertainment, politics, sports, gossips and offbeat happenings are concerned.
Your buffet is to have every Saturday at 09:00pm, all the Twitter chirps of the entire week that you do not want to miss.
Here at the Twitter buffet corner, we have some core beliefs, rules and expectations:
- Love everything there is about showbiz.
- Celebs from whichever hall of fame, are super-humans who defy gravity for breakfast, imagine!
- Have a go-crazy time here at the corner.
- Only celebs are to be taken seriously.
- No one can complain if the buffet has a tilt towards entertainment.
- We “The Buffoons” will choose reel over real any day and by that we are referring to the very first point.
- We unabashedly find our strength in the power of fame, beauty and money. But as cliché as it may sound, love is paramount (Bravo for the cover-up).
- Team vlogs and merchandise are on the cards.
- We at the corner are always looking forward to fresh celebrity interviews and episodes of talk shows to bring to you the freshest of anecdotes.
- Twitter Buffet, in a sentence, is yet to be described for it flows with the current of the week.
- We highly appreciate the story views and support.
Zaheer Khan doesn’t dig Yuvraj Singh’s fielding
So, Zaheer Khan has apparently begun to Twitter a lot after engagement to Sagarika Ghatge. This week we saw the former Indian bowler give a shout out to Yuvraj Singh over social media, only that it could have bruised Yuvi a bit.
Zaheer commented on Pakistan Vs Sri Lanka on June 12 in Champions Trophy 2017 stating: “ 62 needed of 90 with 3 wkts in hand , very interesting to see how it finishes from here ... #CT17 #SLvPAK,” and Yuvraj quipped, " Oh tu bade tweet kar reha aj kal ki gal ?" To which daredevil Khan replied: “I am tweeting like you @YUVSTRONG12 but why are you fielding like me ??? Hahaha.”
It definitely wasn t a burn and we are sure it was taken in the top fun spirit.
By the way, find out who Yuvi thinks is the biggest miser in Indian team. An interview that is nothing but a real chat that gives viewers an insight into the person s life.

Ranbir claims Rs 5,000 for suggesting ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’ title
Shahrukh and Imtiaz Ali released a couple of posters of their upcoming venture ‘Jab Harry Met Sejal’ this week, that is slated for a release in August. The title though was announced with much delay.
Apparently, Ranbir among other people who had visited the sets during film s shoot had suggested the tile that he thought the film should be released with. Dropping by one another s sets is nothing but normal we know.
So what happened was Ranbir and Katrina, co-stars of upcoming Jagga Jasoos were sitting in a vanity with Shah, Anushka and Ranbir in Mehboob Studios in Mumbai when the actor proposed this title to the team.
Recently, at the release of one of Jasoos’s songs tilted Ghalti Se Mistake, Ranbir let out that the team had laughed at him at the time but since his title has been finalised, he is entitled to a reward.
However, Shah was quick to push the budding desire back in.
Just in case Ranbir Kapoor ever claims it…the title Jab Harry met Sejal was never ever suggested by him!So he doesn’t win the Rs.5000 reward— Shah Rukh Khan (@iamsrk) June 8, 2017
Conor McGregor Vs Floyd Mayweather is on!
Ecstatic and cheering. Burnt out by the end of the week, we felt rejuvenated when McGregor Vs Mayweather was made official. It is the fight of the century to put it rightly. Mixed Martial Arts Vs boxing. It is going to be epic.
August 26, T-Mobile Arena Las Vegas. Bring it on. *Hoot Hoot*
THE FIGHT IS ON. pic.twitter.com/KhW0u3jRft— Conor McGregor (@TheNotoriousMMA) June 14, 2017
PTI makes fun of PML-N social media after PM’s JIT visit
In the first ever, sitting Prime Minister of Pakistan appeared before a Joint Investigation Team to prove his innocence against corruption allegations.
This week, on Thursday, the premier was summoned to have his statement recorded at Federal Judicial Academy.
After three hours of hearing, the premier returned to the PM House and chaired a meeting of the ministers to take them in confidence over the issue. Meanwhile, the social media brigade of the ruling party shared pictures of the meeting getting a straight lesson from PTI’s counter force which stated:
Ali Zafar bets on Pak over Champions Trophy final
So Ali Zafar has betted over Pakistan Vs India final. If Pakistan bring Champions Trophy 2017 home for the first time in its history, Priya Gupta who is a producer at music conglomerate TSeries would have to come to Lahore to treat Ali Zafar to a dinner at a restaurant of his choice.
The apparent friends were seen chatting it away on Twitter where the bet was called on.
Final bhee predict ker do phir :)— Ali Zafar (@AliZafarsays) June 15, 2017
Sharmila Farooqi won’t have Khawaja Asif’s misogyny
Sharmila Farooqi is a straight shooter. She belongs to a politically charged family and the lady makes sure her two cents are given a thought about once heard.
Khawaja Asif was hit for a sixer by Farooqi for reverting back to his misogynistic ways. The minister had referred to Firdous Aashiq Awan on Twitter as “dumper”. He revisited “tractor trolley” for Shireen Mazari.
But Farooqi was not to deal with it with slightest of leniency this time, she wrote back: “You have names for female members of your family also? Despicable”
There is silver lining for IK, Tractor trolly & newly acquired dumper can b used for hauling political garbage..no additional effort/expense— Khawaja M. Asif (@KhawajaMAsif) June 12, 2017
You have names for female members of your family also? Despicable https://t.co/Bn3mnvq1nh— Sharmila faruqi (@sharmilafaruqi) June 13, 2017
Waqar to Eoin Morgan
Eoin Morgan was under the fire after his “lame excuse” for losing to Pakistan in Champions Trophy 2017 semi-final.
The English skipper observed that Pakistan was used to the pitch since it had played Sri Lanka the same venue two days ago whereas Britons were new to the bounce the pitch had.
Waqar Younis was not going to have this from Morgan.
He hit back, “Stop giving that lame excuse Eoin Morgan regarding the used pitch,,,,You guys been thrashed fair n square by Pakistan #CT2017 #PakvsEng”
Hey sistah! Shahid Afridi and Sana Bucha
So Shahid Afridi, the former Test, ODI and Twenty20I captain and face of several brands was hosted a Sahoor by TV anchorperson turned actor Sana Bucha at her pad among several friends.
However, it did not go down well with the conservative section of the social media for they judged the two known figures of their society.
So much so that Afridi had to just slide it out there that Bucha and him had what siblings have with one another.
Afridi wrote : “Thank you sister @sanabucha for the fantastic Suhoor last night,it was a pleasure catching up with the faces of Pak Entertainment Industry”
Sana Bucha was not late on the que and responded: “V may not be of same blood but nothing is better than a man who doesn t only call U his sister but treats u like one.Lala! @SAfridiOfficial”
Chintu Kapoor is followed by Pakistan but for the ‘wrong reasons’
Chintu Kapoor took over all the entertainment websites and was mentioned on many television analyses for the passion he let out for cricket on the social media.
Though the Indian actor is long known for digressing from his status in a star-worshiping society to interact with fans as well as responding to haters on Twitter, he just took the cricket fanaticism to another level with some rants and some witty remarks.
After the actor wrote on June 17, “Too many provocations made me say things,” we conclude this week’s buffet with looking at some of his older tweets:
PCB. Cricket team bhejna please.Earlier Hockey ya Kho Kho team bhejin thin. Kyon ki 18th June(Fathers Day) Baap khel raha tumhare saath lol!— Rishi Kapoor (@chintskap) June 15, 2017

Umm.. and just so you know, Ranbir did get his Rs 5,000 from Shah…
Even though it is not the case, we are going to assume that the wait is on for another Twitter Buffet serving. Coming Saturday 09:00pm.
No, that was just a one-timer, won’t be there the next time.
Remember not to be taken seriously?
Ok. Team Twitter Buffet signing off.
