Like most of us, Bollywood stars too desire fun on important calendar dates. Today is April Fool’s Day 2020 and Ajay Devgn, Akshay Kumar and Vidya Balan are the notorious Bollywood citizens whom their fellows fear on this day whether at home or at work.
Bollywood stars not only surprise their fans but they also manage to take their co-actors for a ride. We have often heard actors and filmmakers having the best of their time while on sets during shooting schedules.
Whether it is feeding gajar ka halwa made out of chili paste, to sending marriage proposals and ‘I love you’s to random contact numbers, on April Fool’s Day, we bring to you some hilarious behind the scene pranks by some Bollywood’s beloved stars, who are quite popular for being total pranksters.
Akshay has an image of creating embarrassing scenarios for his co-stars in the name of pranks. The actor whilst filming Jolly LLB 2, with a female lead: Huma Qureshi, stole her phone on set and sent marriage proposals to many Bollywood actors from her number.
Huma later during an interview revealed that she was embarrassed and had to text all those people again to explain her situation. Prior to that, on the sets of Brothers (2015), Akshay had pulled off a similar prank with co-actor Sidharth Malhotra and used his phone to send ‘I Love You’ messages’ to random people.
Ajay whilst shooting for Singham Returns teamed up with director Rohit Shetty and successfully managed to fool the entire cast and crew of the film. This Duo had tasked a spot boy to roam around the location wearing a white gown and had convinced the entire cast that the shoot location was haunted.
Ajay once had offered his co-actor, Arjan Bajwa, from Son of Sardaar (2012), a plate of gajar ka halwa made with red chili paste.
Vidya’s extensive pranking has led her entire team to think that she was joking when she actually broke down in tears on sets of Kahaani 2 (2017).
Whilst shooting for TE3N (2016), Vidya was popular for making funny faces to distract co-actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui, leading him to goof-up several scenes. On the sets of The Dirty Picture (2011), Vidya once pretended to be unwell and requested a female assistant director (AD) to act out a bedroom scene with her co-actor Emraan Hashmi. She later continued to pull her leg afterward as well.
