While Akshay Kumar and Ajay Devgn are known to be pranksters, there is another actor who never fails to show his notorious side to his co-actors- Shahid Kapoor!
Since the script of the movie required the cast and crew to can a lot of midnight shoots, Shahid took advantage of Alia’s fear and devised a plan which lasted for a few nights in order to scare her.
A member of the crew who was a part of the recce team began telling spooky stories and claiming the existence of paranormal activities in the territory, along with paranormal stories built around the castle. Shahid too backed these built-up stories..
One night Shahid switched off Alia's room lights and latched her door as she was about to go to bed. Once the lights were off, Shahid knocked on her door and began making spooky sounds, leaving Alia screaming out of fear. Before things got worse Shahid switched on the lights and confronted Alia about it being a prank and that there was nothing to worry about.
One hears that the pranks had a lasting impact on the young actress who would twitch at the drop of a hat, leaving her awake all night.
However, these pranks surely had the entire team of ‘Shaandaar’ in splits; and Shahid vowed never to trouble Alia again.
Looks like the two actors really bonded well off-screen! We are now waiting for 22nd October to see if their chemistry does wonders on-screen too for this Vikas Bahl movie!
