It's time for Twitter to learn some values and manner, as actor Alok Nath has completed his Twitter warming ceremony. Nath aka Babuji, who became an Internet sensation earlier this year, has joined the social networking site Twitter on Thursday.
In his first tweet, the actor sportingly talked about the jokes and memes on him.
"Pranaam Twitter world! Finally attending the party you guys threw for me. Let's hope it's a good one. Cheers," he tweeted.
Babuji got overwhelming response within hours of logging in on Twitter. His first tweet has been retweeted more than 600 times. Twitterati also followed the actor to take his blessings.
Nath, who is called the Babuji of the film industry, became popular after jokes and memes on his on-screen character went viral. During his acting career, Nath played several roles, but he got famous for his on-screen persona of father in films like "Maine Pyaar Kia", "Hum Saath Saath Hai", "Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Ghum", "Vivah" and "Taal" among others.
The posts mocked the actor's character of Babuji in television serials and films, but Nath took it in a sporting way and enjoyed the jokes. He believes that people had thrown a party for him when the jokes were circulated online.
"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 told Hindustan Times.
Meanwhile, jokes on the actor have refused to die down. Even after joining the social networking site, jokes on him started to trend again.

@aloknath Please don't say cheers. Alcohol is against Indian culture.

@aloknath "cheers" ? I think it's a fake account.
