Veteran actor Alok Nath, who is Twitterati’s favourite subject for humour, finally joined the social networking site on June 26. The actor, close to his ‘Babuji’ image, wished the Twitterati ‘Pranam’.
Pranaam Twitter world! Finally attending the party you guys threw for me. Let's hope it's a good one. Cheers!

The actor, known for his fatherly roles in films like “Maine Pyar Kiya”, “Hum Saath-Saath Hain” and “Vivah” and TV shows like “Piya Ka Ghar” and “Astitva – Ek Prem Kahani”, has no qualms about people cracking jokes on him or his popular character “Babuji”.
In the last six months, there have been close to 2,00,000 tweets about him and his character.
“I’m excited to join Twitter since people have popularised my character on it and I’m happy to now finally share the real Alok Nath with the world. It feels like there was a party thrown in my honour and I didn’t attend.”
“So I’m attending now, fashionably later than never and I’m looking forward to engaging with my fans and friends in real-time,” he said in a statement.
Alok Nath, who was the butt of all jokes on Twitter with his ‘sanskar and ashirwad’ related humour, got a cheeky welcome from model-actress Poonam Pandey.
The actress known for her extremely bold image on Twitter, posted a picture wearing an ethnic dress saying, “GR8 to see Sri @aloknath on Twitter. … Sir This is a Welcoming Pic for You.”
She further joked, “First day on Twitter of Sri @aloknath Made mw Change my DP …. Lot more Sankars to Learn from Him #AloknathEffect.”

If Poonam Pandey was not enough, the ‘sanskar and ashirvad’ humour was rehashed by fans to welcome their ‘babuji’.

Damn it. Damn it. @aloknath has joined Twitter. The end of inappropriate jokes and non-sanskar comments.
