Vijay Lalwani and Farhan Akhtar

Farhan Akhtar revealed his fun-loving side while shooting for the first schedule of his home production Karthik Calling Karthik. For a scene, which required Farhan to have a telephone wire wound around his neck, the filmmaker-actor decided to give a scare to the cast and the crew of the film by pretending he was choking.

A source says, “When director Vijay Lalwani exerted pressure while tying a telephone wire around Farhan’s neck, the actor collapsed. The director and crew members panicked and Farhan was immediately given a pillow to cushion his head and his hands were massaged to boost blood circulation. He was also given water. They also went to the extent of calling for an ambulance. Happy about the hullaballoo he had created, Farhan finally owned up to his prank.”

Vijay confirms the news and says, “Yes. I tied the telephone wire around Farhan’s neck but to my horror, he fell down. I was completely shaken up and I immediately called for an ambulance and even tried calling producer Ritesh Sidhwani. Thankfully, in 10 minutes Farhan admitted to his prank. I was so relieved. Later, I learnt that Farhan and cinematographer Sano Varghese had decided to stage the prank.”
