Today is April 1, the day when everyone comes up with new and improved pranks to make a fool out of the opposite person. These pranksters are almost everywhere. And Bollywood is no different. If you thought that it was just Akshay Kumar who is known for his pranks, then think again! Here is a list of Bollywood celebs who have [rived to be a ‘pro; when it comes to pranking!

Akshay Kumar
If at all, there was an award for the biggest prankster, then, it has to be none other than Bollywood’s very own Akshay Kumar aka Khiladi Kumar. There is not just one, but many pranks that he has been a part of! There was a time when the beautiful Huma Qureshi became a victim to the pranks of Akshay Kumar, something which she had revealed on The Kapil Sharma Show.

Speaking about the prank, Huma said (read ‘revealed’) that, once, Akshay Kumar had stolen her phone and landed up sending marriage proposals to many Bollywood actors! As a result of which, Huma was petrified when she got to know about it. Post the prank, Huma had to text all those ‘recipients of her marriage proposal’ in order to explain to them that it was a mere prank!

But, on this April Fool’s Day, something unimaginable has happened. This time round, the hunter has become the hunted. We are indeed talking about Akshay Kumar being at the receiving end of the prank. Yes… you heard it right. It is none other than Akshay Kumar who had got pranked by his Bade Miyan Chote Miyan co-star Tiger Shroff!

Tiger Shroff, today, took to social media and proudly shared the prank in which he calls out Akshay Kumar and requests him to open a bottle of cola. Akshay Kumar, upon opening that, was treated to a fizz of cola flowing out!

Ranbir Kapoor
Even though Ranbir Kapoor has always been associated with stellar performances, this one really comes as a surprise that he could actually prank anyone! As per an entertainment website, it had been reported that, during the shooting of one of the scenes, Aditya Roy Kapur and Kalki Koechlin had to do a getting drunk scene.

Generally, its water that gets kept in these glasses. But, to the surprise (and even shock) of Aditya Roy Kapur and Kalki Koechlin, Ranbir Kapoor had replaced water with vodka shots! The rest is anybody’s imagination!

Ajay Devgn
For a person whose social media profile states, ‘I talk more in films than in real life’, thinking about him as a prankster is next to impossible. We are indeed talking about Ajay Devgn, who had once pranked everyone by offering gajar ka halwa! But the catch was that it was mixed with chilli powder! This prank was revealed by Ajay Devgn’s co-star Arjan Bajwa during an interview with The Times Of India!

Aamir Khan
He is not just ‘Mr. Perfectionist’; on screen. He is a thorough pro when it comes to pranking as well! This incident had happened on the sets of the superhit film Dangal, when Fatima was busy playing a board game (presumably chess), when Aamir Khan sat next to her with a ‘cup of hot coffee’ in his hand, whereas the cup was totally empty. He then pretended to spill it over her hair by mistake and thus burned it in the bargain! Needless to say, when Fatima started screaming about burnt hair, later, she realised it was a prank.

Rohit Shetty
Rohit Shetty and Ajay Devgn have joined hands for not just churning blockbusters, but also a few pranks as well. It was during one of the important shootings of Singham Returns, the prankster duo made everyone believe (with utmost conviction) that the said set was totally haunted. And in order to authenticate their claim, they even had ‘set-up’ a spot boy to play the ghost dressed up in spotless white!
