The actor, known for his fatherly roles in the film and television, became a pop culture icon as the Sanskari Babuji on Twitter a few months back, when one of his movies was being aired on television and users began tweeting about his character and his dialogues.

Alok Nath on joining Twitter said, “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.”


Pratiksha Rao, Entertainment partnerships manager, Twitter said, “We are very happy to welcome Alok Nath on Twitter.
