In what be called irony of the decade, popular actor Alok Nath – who is famous for his ‘sanskari character’ in pop culture – became the butt of jokes on Twitter again after the news of his son Shivang Nath getting a ticket for drunk driving reached the Internet.

Reportedly, Shivang was returning from a birthday party in South Mumbai with three of his friends, when the police signalled his car to stop for over-speeding. He tried to flee from there, only to be chased by the police. When caught, it was found that the young man had consumed more alcohol than what is permissible.

“Shivang slowed down and lowered his window but before he could say his name he fled. There was a male sitting in the front and two women sitting behind. The accused has been booked for drunk driving, not possessing a licence and disobeying police orders, and we have collected a deposit of Rs 2,500,” Mumbai police spokesperson was quoted as saying.

He appeared in front of the magistrate on Tuesday afternoon and was let off with a warning.

But, what would otherwise have been passed off as just another incident, became a Twitter phenomenon when jokes about his father started erupting online. Thanks to the sermons on ‘sanskar’ the actor has been giving through his film’s characters – the typical ‘babuji’ roles – Netizens couldn’t help but refer to those yet again. Given the abundant sanskari memes already online, THAT wasn’t all that difficult.

Take a look.

Now, we really feel for the actor, who seems to have gotten stuck with this label, but it seems the sanskari tag has become the albatross around Alok Nath’s neck.
