If there has to be one master prankster in Bollywood, I think Akshay Kumar will take the title without a doubt. We have always heard from all his colleagues and co-stars about his notorious pranks and how he pulls their legs. While he is razor focussed when it comes to his work in front of the camera, guess this is his way to cool off between takes. The latest we hear is from his Housefull 4 co-star, Riteish Deshmukh, who shared how Akshay tried to pull a prank on him and Vidya Balan during the shooting of Heyy Babyy.

While they were promoting their latest release, Housefull 4 on the sets of ‘The Kapil Sharma Show’, Riteish recalled how Akshay took his phone and slyly texted Vidya an ‘I love you’ text, which led to some confusion!

Here’s what he said:

While we were shooting for ‘Heyy Babyy’, Akshay secretly took my phone and texted Vidya Balan, saying ‘I love you muah, muah, muah’. The funny part was that Vidya replied back writing ‘Muaaa Muaaa Muaaa (kisses)’ (laughs). When I saw the message, I was taken aback, wondering why Vidya sent the message to me, without knowing a message had gone to her from my phone. It was later that I figured that both our phones were with Akshay! He always plays pranks with all of us.

Now this is one seasoned prank, don’t you guys think?

Akshay apparently agreed to it, saying, “Mazaa aata hai masti karne mein (it’s fun playing pranks).

We are sure when it comes to Akshay and his pranks, all his co-stars are sports about it! Housefull 4 is all set to release on the 25th of October, and co-stars Kriti Sanon, Bobby Deol, Chunky Pandey, Pooja Hegde and Kriti Kharbanda.
