Actor Sooraj Pancholi is back on Twitter after deleting his account last year following the controversy surrounding his father, actor Aditya Pancholi, and actress Kangana Ranaut.

Announcing his return on Twitter, Sooraj tweeted on Sunday, "Hello everyone. So here's the first tweet from my official handle! Feels good to be back on Twitter! Missed you guys." He is now available on Twitter with username @Sooraj9pancholi.

Singer Armaan Malik welcomed the actor on Twitter saying, "Hero is back on Twitter! Go follow him right away..." Notably, Armaan had sung Main Hoon Hero Tera—the title song for Sooraj's debut movie Hero, which released in 2015.

Sooraj quit Twitter in 2017 after Kangana accused his father of physically abusing her during her initial days in the film industry. Kangana's allegations did not go down well with Sooraj as her fans started targeting him and his sister Sana on social media.

Currently, Sooraj is embroiled in Jiah Khan’s suicide case. Incidentally, Jiah was found dead in her Mumbai residence in June, 2013. On his 28th birthday in November, he took to Instagram to clear his stance in a long post.

Defending himself by saying that he has been misunderstood and portrayed in the wrong light, he wrote, “I don’t blame the people who call me names, because that’s how I have been portrayed in public, but I’m not the monster that has been portrayed in headlines.

“I know how easy it is to think the worst of someone and accuse them but it is exceptionally hard to prove myself innocent as there’s a procedure that we need to follow. A procedure that has taken long enough that I have been made to feel guilty without even being given a fair chance to prove my innocence. There have been accusations and assumptions but there has been no validation,” he added.

Today I complete 28 years of my life. I want to take up this moment to share a few thoughts that have been in my heart for a while. I wanted to wait to speak out until the case ended, but it’s taken longer than expected. I don’t know where to start from. It is difficult to express some feelings when so many people, so many emotions are involved. First, I want to thank those who have stood by me like a pillar of strength. It has been a long journey that started when I was still trying to understand life. I have been fighting the case in court for the last 6 years, with patience and respect, waiting for the trial to be completed. In this process I have been called a murderer, a criminal, an abuser and so much worse. I read these things about me almost every single day. And my heartfelt effort has always been to be strong, respectful and ignore it. But they still fill my and my loved ones’ heart with so much sadness. I don’t blame the people who call me names, because that’s how i have been portrayed in public, but i’m not the monster that has been portrayed in headlines. I know how easy it is to think the worst of someone and accuse them but it is exceptionally hard to prove myself innocent as there’s a procedure that we need to follow. A procedure that has taken long enough that i have been made to feel guilty without even being given a fair chance to prove my innocence. There have been accusations and assumptions but there has been no validation. But, this is not about what others say. This is about how I feel. For as long as I can remember, my dream has always been to make my parents proud. I have always tried to be a good son to them. In the last 6 years, I’ve tried harder everyday to achieve this dream and to be positive. So today, I am praying with my heart that our family can move forward, that the trial can come to a fair end and that I can give back all the love, support and strength I have received from so many of you. Thank you to all of you who constantly send positivity my way. You may not know it, but every single one of your prayers has helped.
