"Back. Welcome reprieve for Salman. Unprecedented reaction to this news. Was wondering mere Twitter wapis aane pe Kya 1/100th% reaction hoga (Wondering if my return to Twitter will generate 1/100th percent of reactions that the news of the suspension of Salman Khan's five-year sentence generated)."

“Sajid. You are responsible for my coming back. Tweeple. If I do anything wrong lynch this man Sajid. Thank you Twitter for welcoming me. Touched," Rishi tweeted on Friday.

Rishi had decided to quit the micro-blogging website Twitter after he courted adverse reactions to his comments against singer Abhijeet Bhattacharya and former "Bigg Boss" contestant Ajaz Khan's take on Salman Khan's 2002 hit-and-run case verdict.

"Hi. Thought about it. Too much negativity abusive language and disregard for seniors. Will retire from Twitter coz it has only given me grief," the 62-year-old tweeted on Friday.

Multiple celebrities, including Anupam Kher, Sonam Kapoor and Raveena Tandon, appealed to the "Bobby" actor to avoid quitting the platform. Rishi had reacted by posting "Ashamed of Abhijit the singer and some Ejaz Khan. Bunch of idiots and non starters.

"The actor then added another tweet "Sorry to say but only wannabe Chamchas of Salman siding him with ridiculous support. Hum bhi well wishers hain but give logical explanations."

Later, Rishi cleared the air by tweeting that his "chamcha" comment and that his use of the word was only for people like Bhattacharya, and that his family was always with the Khan family.
