Hours before his 32nd birthday, actor Neil Nitin Mukesh got his birthday present -- and a funny one it was.
'Neil Nitin Mukesh' started trending on Twitter on Tuesday night and continued to be the top trend on Wednesday morning as Alok Nath got a much needed breather.
Interestingly, most tweets poked fun at the three names in the Bollywood actor's name - Neil, Nitin and Mukesh. The jokes, mercifully for the actor, were in good taste.
Neil Nitin Mukesh was a willing participant in the exercise and even retweeted some of the jokes.
The actor tweeted, "Seriously laughing that I am trending.some rather interesting ones out there .Re-tweeting my 7 Favourite. ENJOY!!! (sic)"

He even shared a joke: "And for the record the best one of the day comes from MY FATHER. 3 CHEERS FOR "NEIL NITIN MUKESH".
