April 1st, better known as April Fools' Day, is a celebration of pranks and laughter. This is the day when people get to play jokes and hoaxes on others without getting into much trouble. Joining in celebrating the day we, at BollyCurry, bring you a few pranks played in Bollywood movies.

While pranks are usually seen as a laughing matter, in Bodyguard a prank is what makes the hero fall in love with the heroine. Kareena Kapoor's character, Divya, is annoyed at her bodyguard, Lovely Singh, played by Salman Khan, as he follows her everywhere when she decides to prank call him from a private number. With an intention to keep him away, this prank call turns into a love affair when Lovely gradually ends up falling for Divya who is acting as Chhaya, the girl on the other side of phone. 

The 2009 all-time blockbuster movie, 3 Idiots, had one of the most memorable pranks played in any Bollywood film. Chatur, who lacks knowledge in Hindi becomes a laughingstock when Rancho, played by Aamir Khan, changes the word "Chamatkar" to "Balatkar" in the speech Chatur is supposed to give in front of the Minister of Education and fellow students of the university.

Pranks are the basis of this love story showcased in Main Prem Ki Diwani Hoon. Sanjana aka Kareena Kapoor, an independent girl who lives on her own terms is upset when her parents decide to get her married to a businessman named Prem. Sanjana, with the help of her friends, tries to play several pranks on Prem, portrayed by Hrithik Roshan, in a hope to make him leave. But these pranks come back to bite her as Prem makes her the victim of his pranks when Sanjana's friends try to check if Prem has a normal physique. This tale of pranks eventually makes them fall in love making them inseparable.

In Zameer -The Fire Within, Pooja, played by Ameesha Patel, who is famous for playing pranks in college ends up becoming a victim herself when Ajay Devgn's character, Suraj, pours a bowl of daal on her head as she is trying to convince him to eat the chutney made out of rose petals.


Yet another love story that starts with pranks and fun ends in love is the story classic of Raj and Simran in the longest running movie Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge. Shah Rukh Khan's portrayal Raj, a born prankster goes on a trip to Europe where he meets Simran, played by Kajol Devgn. Their journey that begins with Raj playing pranks on Simran who is too tight, concludes in them falling for each other at the end of their trip. 

Pranks are a part of everyone's April Fool's, whether as a victim or the prankster. Share some of your stories with us! On this note, BollyCurry wishes everyone a very laughter filled April Fools' Day. Don't ever stop laughing!
