During that time, he had also made an impulsive tweet addressed to Prime Minister, Narendra Modi. Hinting towards it, Kapil during his appearance on the TV show, Aap Ki Adalat, mentioned how his wife, Gini Chatrath makes sure that her husband doesn’t repeat such mistakes. Thus, at times, when he starts drinking at night, Ginni used to take away his phone. Kapil elaborated:
“Roz 10 baje ke baad toh nahi, jab kabhi kabhi mere 11.30 bajte hain na, toh fir vo…(she takes my phone)…vo sayani hai na, usko pata hai phir kuch panga kar dega.. (hinting at the time when he made the infamous drunk tweet to PM Modi).”

In the same conversation, Kapil mentioned how he has stopped posting on social media the way he used to do earlier. He also admitted that he used to put his nose in everything happening around him earlier and had the habit of expressing his views on them. But finally, he has changed his thinking about his responsibility towards his kids. He mentioned:
“Now I do not post on social media..haan pehle aise kar deta tha… pehle merko har baat mein ghusne ki aadat thi. I used to comment on every issue. I expressed my opinions without anyone asking for them, sometimes you invite trouble for yourself. But now there is a lot of change in me, after two children, you get a sense of responsibility. After a few years, my kids will start reading what’s there on Twitter, vo sochenge humara baap aisa hai?”
