Actor Aditya Pancholi may not be getting hits at the box office, but the 50-year-old actor is a hit on social media.



On Sunday, #AdityaPancholi trended on Twitter, following his arrest for getting into a brawl in a Mumbai pub on Saturday.



Several users joked about Pancholi being arrested time and again.



@SRKswarrior1, a user wrote, "Jab se padhna likjna sikha hoon uss din se aajtak ek cheez consistently padhta hoon paper mein ‘aditya pancholi arrested’."



This is not the first time that Pancholi has found himself in trouble. In 2003, he was booked for attacking his neighbour and he again grabbed headlines when he allegedly roughed up a woman journalist for asking uncomfortable questions about his son, Sooraj.



"Aditya Pancholi’s current whatsapp status: ‘last seen fighting in the club’ (sic)," wrote another user, Manoj Parmar.



Others compared his run-in with bouncers at the pub with cricketer Suresh Raina’s inability to deal with bouncers. "Yesterday both Maxwell and Aditya Pancholi smashed bouncers with different results (sic)," wrote Vikram Sathaye, a user.



Pancholi apparently lost his cool when the DJ of the pub where he was partying refused to play the songs he wanted. Enraged by this, Pancholi abused and pushed the security guard, and hit him on the head. He was presented in a magistrate’s court at Bandra on Sunday, and granted bail.
