Mumbai: Megastar Amitabh Bachchan's dedication for tweeting and blogging on the sets of 'Aarakshan' has inspired filmmaker Prakash Jha to join the social networking community.

While shooting for the August release 'Aarakshan', the 68-year-old actor would diligently write his blog every day and also update his fans on twitter.

This made his director curious and Jha recently started tweeting from his handle @prakashjha1, sources close to the filmmaker said.

In one of his early tweets, Jha shared a still photo from 'Aarakshan', showing Bachchan walking in the rain. He also retweeted Amitabh Bachchan's tweet dated 8 March: "T 300 -Somebody from the crowd, after seeing me getting wet in rain shot after shot, yelled to director - 'Look after our son-in-law, please!'"
