Working 12 hour shifts may be taking a toll on their physical and
emotional selves, but that ain't stopping our telly stars from playing the
occasional gag on their colleagues.
We scoured the sets to find a smattering of them giggling into their
cuffs while remembering the odd incident where they played harmless
practical jokes on co-artistes; and found some still smarting from the
effects of a prank played on them, but smiling nevertheless.
It was Rucha Gujarati (aka Kali in Kkusum) who's had the latest and
most rocking surprise on Christmas Eve. "I had to shoot a suicide scene
and my director, Jassi asked me to lie unconscious with my eyes shut. As
usual he was calling the shots, 'zoom, close up, lights' and I was
giving my best. It was a 10 minute shot, but even after that, my director
wasn't giving a cut signal. I was lying tranquil as if unconscious for
quite a while, and only then realised that the entire unit was laughing
into their hankies. I was taken aback but burst out laughing
subsequently. It was just so hilarious and funny. And then we wished one another
Ghost on the run
"We had gone to the Mukesh mills compound at Colaba to shoot for
Kahaani Ghar Ghar Kii, a spot that's believed to be haunted,"reminisces
Chetan Hansraj aka Sasha. "While shooting we suddenly heard some creepy and
unusual noises that made us all sweat through our nerves. Suddenly,
there was an image of a ghost in front of us and everyone was petrified
and holding onto one another. At last, the cameraman started laughing. He
had tricked us into believing the existence of the ghost with the help
of his camera. Eventually, all had a hearty laugh….."
Letting the dog out of the bag
"My Saara Aakash co star Shakti Anand (aka Vikram) and me went to meet
his friend at his residence as we were shooting in his neighbourhood,"
remembers Sai Deodhar. "On the way, Shakti warned me that his friend
had three ferocious dogs at his place. I was so scared; I just wanted to
back out. But he convinced me saying they would be tied up and I need
not worry. When we reached the house, I started looking for the dogs. I
kept mum as Shakti, prompted me not to mention the dogs. I was at my
weirdest behaviour, sitting still without a word on the edge of my seta,
and keeping an eye for the dogs.
At last, my host asked me, "Is there a problem?" I lost my patience and
asked, "Where are the dogs? I am too scared, are they tied? The lady,
herself amazed, said, "But we don't have any dogs!" That's when Shakti
split up into laughter. I wasn't very amused at that time, though!
One guy who loves playing pranks on his co-stars is Anuj Saxena, the
savvy doctor turned actor. "I am too smart to be fooled," he says
laughingly. "I keep playing pranks on my co-stars every day, like screaming in
their ears or shocking them by jumping in front of them."
Recollecting one such incident, Anuj says, "We were shooting for
Prratima for Sahara One at Madh Island recently. One of the helpers was
carrying a wooden snake. I used the snake to scare my co-star and producer
Jyoti Mukerjee and another colleague, Rekha. Both were so shocked and
shaken, that Rekha ended up crying and Jyoti was too scared to even
speak. It was a blast," he grins. Well, we are yet to get Jyoti's and
Rekha's version of the incident, but can be sure they won't be laughing as much over it!
I know this does not have any connection to KTH..... But just for entertainment sake I am giving it.
