April Fool’s Day is as good a day as any to engage in some harmless practical jokes or pranks. This year we found ourselves with quite a bit of free time, because of #you-know-what. So we decided to do a deep dive and come up with some of our favourite pranks that stars TV shows and series on ZEE5 have pulled on their co-stars and crew. Here’s what we came up with.
Dheeraj Dhoopar pulled a classic prank on his Kundali Bhagya co-stars Shraddha Arya, Ruhi Chaturvedi, and Anjum Fakih. He photobombed their selfie by throwing a rubber snake at them. Like always, all three of them reacted in fear.
Watch Ruhi Chaturvedi get back at Karan for scaring her by smashing cake on his face on his previous birthday.
Sehban Azim aka Malhar from Tujhse Hai Raabta revealed that he pulled a prank on his co-star, Reem Shaikh. Sehban told Reem that the show was going to take a leap and that she would have to play a mother of an eight year old. Reem began getting nervous because she wasn’t informed and wondered how she couldn’t play play a mother when she herself is so young. Later, Reem was told that it was a joke and she took it in the right spirit!
Saumya Tandon or Anita bhabhi from the &TV show Bhabi Ji Ghar Par Hain played a prank on her co-star Rohitash Gaud (Tiwari ji). While the whole cast was enjoying bhajiyas in the rainy season, Saumya gave Rohitash only the spicy chili bhajiyas, who then had to eat loads of sweet chutney to cancel out the spiciness.
Shikha Singh who plays the evil and manipulative Aliya in Kumkum Bhagya showed her fun side in this prank. She tricked Vin Rana, who plays the role of Purab, to open a bottle of water and then sprays the water on him. What we love most is Tauji’s unimpressed reaction to the prank.
Eisha Singh from Ishq Subhan Allah played a harmless prank on co-star Adnan Khan, not once but twice. Eisha Singh got Adnan Khan to pose for a picture with him but actually was filming a video. Adnan Khan held his pose for quite a while till he realised that he was being filmed. You know how they say, ‘Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me’? We bet Adnan felt that saying a little too deeply!
On the sets Ishq Aaj Kal, Paras Kalnawat who plays the role of Faraz on the show tried a dangerous prank on Ankitta Sharma, the lead actress. He kept calling her up posing as an uncle who wanted to meet privately with her. Ankitta Sharma even began crying at one point before she was told about the prank.
Riya Sen who was seen in the ZEE5 series Poison shared a funny prank of hers too. She pretended to faint in a crowded shop in Mathuri with her then-director Nisheeth. We must applaud Riya’s commitment to the prank because she stayed in character even when other people around her ran looking for help.
