If you thought Bollywood lacked a funny bone, it's time you ate your own words.

If you thought Bollywood lacked a funny bone, it's time you ate your own words.

Following Aam Admi Party's unprecedented sweep of the Delhi election, a number of our stars have taken to Twitter to send in their congratulatory messages, with a joke or two of their own.

Comedian Varun Grover took a jibe at former AAP member Shazia Ilmi when he tweeted: "Hahahahahaha! Shazia Ilmi jumped from a life-boat to a sinking ship."

Actor-filmmaker Farhan Akhtar tweeted, "People of Delhi gracefully say "Pehle AAP." Congratulations to @ArvindKejriwal and his team. Time to live up to the peoples hope & trust."

Actor Siddharth wrote, "Delhi continues to be the National capital region of high drama. What a day for #Kejri ... Never take anything for granted in politics!"

Bollywood actor Sandhya Mridul tweeted, "AAP aaye bahaar aayi.."


It is now a statistical certainty that Delhi has more eve-teasers than Congress voters

Shobhaa De:

An ordinary man's extraordinary victory! And he did it without a monogrammed suit!

Chetan Bhagat:

Today, Delhi is giving BJP a roast.

Badi badi democracies main aisi badi badi baatien hoti rehti hain.

Bollywood producer Tanuj Garg: "Hold me responsible for BJP's win or loss: Kiran Bedi. Loss, love. A win will be credited to your boss."

Pritish Nandy: AAP wins one of the biggest electoral victories in Indian history. BJP's hubris defeated. Kiran Bedi trailing.

Shekhar Kapur: It's time to accept the young Indian voter is far more sophisticated Individual who thinks clearly about local n national issues #KiskiDilli.

Kamaal R Khan: It's historical n biggest ever win of any party since independence n it's proof of popularity of @ArvindKejriwal n #AAP #DelhiElections

Shruti Seth: Could not have woken up to better news. Maza aa gaya. Thank you Delhi for keeping the faith. #AAPwinsDelhi #AAP all the way. Yuhooooo!!!

Neha Dhupia: Congratulations @ArvindKejriwal and @AamAadmiParty for this historic win! Now Pls don't let the voters down! Make #Delhi a better place.

Sudhir Mishra: Amazing, the Indian voter. Amazing! Amazing! Amazing!

Some other Twitter handles out there to give a funny twist to the Delhi election results.

Tushar A Gandhi tweeted, "Delhi voters give number of seats to BJP in Delhi that their Sants were advocating as ideal number for Hindu Family, 6 - maa, baap aur chaar bachche."

@GabbbarSingh: It's so fitting that you need Congress' election symbol to use AAP's election symbol. Their own corruption gave birth to AAP :)

@anindya0909: The #MufflerManReturns and this time he is supposed to be dedliest .#KiskiDilli

@kunalmajumder: Yogendra Yadav is so honest. He accepts Modi is still very popular and it would be unfair to think BJP will be defeated in Bihar #respect

@AarSee: It's #AAPKiDilli and somnath bharti will be a minister again. Keep those doors locked at night people #raidministerisback

Congress invented the ZERO #delhidecides #aapkidilli

@NotSoSnob: NaMo had nothing to do with Delhi. He didn't campaign in Delhi. Loss isn't his. NaMo campaigned all over India. Win is his.

Earlier, filmmaker Hansal Mehta had tweeted his support to AAP on the micro-blogging site. "Woke up after a late night shoot with renewed hope. It's Delhi Election Day and I'm hopeful that #AAP will begin the process of change," he wrote.
