Woohoo..it's April Fool's Day today! We guess, you may even have pulled out some pranks on your friends or might have at least, ended up as an unsuspecting 'victim'.
Guess, what? Bollywood too has its own share of such pranksters. These actors and directors made sure that life on the sets turns out to be exciting. They played pranks on their co-stars, sometimes not sparing even the other film crew!
We bring to you 9 such pranksters from Bollywood. (P.S The next time you come across them, be sure that you don't end up being a 'bakra'. Don't say, we didn't warn you before.)
1. Ajay Devgn
Our 'Singham' has a special affinity for practical jokes and gigs. While shooting for 'Himmatwala' in Hyderabad, the actor gave director Sajid Khan, a royal scare by sneaking into his bathroom and leaving blood prints on the mirrors and walls.
He played a prank on Kareena Kapoor Khan during the shoot of 'Golmaal Returns' by throwing a fake bomb next to her, which made some hissing noises. Poor Bebo ran for her life! It was only later that, she realized that they were never meant to burst!
Even Katrina Kaif has been a victim of his pranks. While they were shooting for Prakash Jha's 'Rajneeti', Ajay took Arjun Rampal and Manoj Bajpayee into confidence and the trio walked up to Katrina and told her that they were throwing a party since it was Nana Patekar's birthday.They asked her to dress up in an Indian attire as Nana was very particular about how women dressed. So, Katrina hurriedly dressed up in a salwar-kameez and walked up to Nana with a box given by Ajay. When Nana opened the box, he was shocked to see the contents- old underwear, a single chappal and a fake moustache as a gift. Everyone including Ajay, Arjun and Manoj couldn't stop laughing, leaving Katrina highly embarrassed!
2. Aamir Khan
Like they saw 'Looks can be deceptive too'. Aamir, our Mr Perfectionist, too loves to play pranks. He is famous for his 'spitting' prank. Ewwww..sounds gross. The actor would pretend to predict the future of his colleagues and then spit on their palms.
3. Abhishek Bachchan
The junior Bachchan, once, convinced everyone on a set to stay away from the milk provided there, claiming that it was laced with bhang.
During the shoot of 'Happy New Year', the actor sent out mischievous tweets from director Farah Khan's phone, praising himself. The tweets included messages like, "Abhishek Bachchan on the sets...so excited..He's just the best", "This Junior Bachchan is fantastic!" and "I wish all my actors were as accomplished and professional as junior Bachchan".
4. Akshay Kumar
From placing a weighty stack of spoons in Kajal Aggarwal's clutch, to making a phone call posing as a journalist to her, to quietly emptying an entire cup of salt in Katrina's food when they participated in a reality cookery show, Akky is a 'khiladi' of pranks too.
5. Ranbir Kapoor
The Kapoor boy, while shooting for 'Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani', sneakily replaced the water in the shot glasses for a scene with actual vodka. The result- Aditya Roy Kapur and Kalki Koechlin landed up drunk!
6. Shahid Kapoor
He scared the daylights out of his co-star Amrita Rao, by painting his face with a special glow make-up.
7. Emraan Hashmi
While shooting for Milan Luthria's 'The Dirty Picture', Emraan passed off an aerated drink in a glass as liquor and eve-teased Vidya, who was in her Silk Smitha avatar. The actress ended up complaining to the production managers only to realize that, they too had been a part of this prank!
8. Anurag Kashyap
Anurag, once, played a prank on his friends with the help of his friend, producer Guneet Monga. The duo called up all their friends for a surprise party in Madh Island via a message on Facebook. However, they did not reveal the venue and instead, arranged transport from the Madh jetty, for them. However, when his friends reached the venue, they realised that it was basically the film set of Freida Pinto's 'Trishna' and they were supposed to act as guests in the party scene for the film. Hahaha..how clever is that!
9. Vidya Balan
The only lady in only list. Vidya used to give shocks to everyone on the sets of 'Kismat Konnection' with a fake pen, that emitted jolts of electricity. She even managed to fool Tusshar Kapoor into believing that, he was required to shoot for a scene, blindfolded, in 'Dirty Picture'
