Veteran actor Rishi Kapoor has always seemed like a jovial person, the kind of person who could be your friend's cool dad and hangs out with you as just one of the boys. Which is why it makes perfect sense that, on Twitter, he is possibly the funniest celebrity around.
While the actor first tweeted in January 2010, he took a long hiatus from the microblogging website only to return on February 26 this year. Since then, the senior actor, husband to Neetu Singh and father of Ranbir Kapoor, has been tweeting up a storm. His tweets are often laced with irreverent humour and he has the famous 'Kapoor family' trait — an enduring love for eating, drinking, and the good life. But he isn't always just joking about — the senior Kapoor has also used his wit to weigh in on issues that have dominated the news.
If you haven't been following him on Twitter (his handle is the adorable @chintskap), here are some of his most hilarious and/or insightful tweets that you've missed. Also, just get on Twitter and follow him because he's only getting better, because you'll totally miss:
1. The time he had an opinion on the beef ban in Maharashtra.
If it is the problem of slaughtering our "Gau mata"then the government should allow importing beef which was banned until now.All happy then— rishi kapoor (@chintskap) March 3, 2015
2. The time he made the most 'dad joke' of all time.
Had a fight with Neetu last night. She doesn't understand that I am very scientific specially in the night after 8. pic.twitter.com/1Y3IFjx9ob— rishi kapoor (@chintskap) March 23, 2015
3. The time he joked about his flagging career.

5. The time he asked the question we've always wanted to ask (and never gotten the answer to).
Why do male/female actors wear dark sun glasses in the NIGHT specially at parties and airports where media hang around? Someone tell me this— rishi kapoor (@chintskap) March 20, 2015
6. The time he took a strong stance on the Aarey Colony controversy in Mumbai for all the right reasons. Totally.
Please save Aarey greenery as this is the only place where celebrities can take their lovers in their car as not to be seen.I Protest for it— rishi kapoor (@chintskap) March 23, 2015
7. The time he got super excited after realising his account had been verified.
