Bollywood actor Alok Nath, who is best known for his role of Haveli Ram in Ramesh Sippy's television series 'Buniyaad', seems to have become Twitter's number one trending topic since Sunday night.
It started off with one funny tweet saying, "Our nation only learnt about heart attacks because of Alok Nath. This was quickly followed by another tweet saying, "Alok Nath wears sweater in Mumbai because his mom in Punjab felt cold".
Since then there has been an absolute barrage of unflattering tweets and jibes about the actor who isn't even on Twitter to reply to the Tweeple.
Alok Nath was trending even faster with many tweets wondering why the actor was suddenly trending in the first place. What's interesting is that most of the jokes reveolve around family values and the word 'sanskaar'.
Here are some of the tweets:
Alok Nath is so innocent that he ended up paying service tax for the next ten years after watching its ad.

Sujit Agrawal @imsujitagrawal 16s: "Alok Nath wants twitter to add 'Aashirwad' button."
When you type Alok nath on Google search, "I'm feeling Lucky" changes to "I'm feeling Sanskari" :-P
