Jiah caught ’stealing’ table cutlery!
Posted January 22, 2010on:
What happens when a waiter at a restaurant catches you smuggling out cutlery in your bag? He asks you to er, fork out the cost, perhaps?
Well, that’s what happened with Jiah Khan when she was dining with her Houseful co-stars – Deepika Padukone, Lara Dutta, Akshay Kumar, Ritesh Deshmukh director Sajid Khan and producer Sajid Nadiadwala – at a beach resort in Italy.
// <![CDATA[// // <![CDATA[// // <![CDATA[// It was a prank engineered by Akshay and Ritesh along with their co-stars, director and producer. And guess who played the sidekick? The waiter who served them dinner. After whispering the plan into Deepika and Lara’s ears when they all finished their meal, Akshay got up with two forks and spoons and pretended he was talking on his phone. He kept strolling near the table and when Jiah was not paying attention, he slipped the spoon and fork into her huge bag which was open. After a minute or two, Ritesh repeated Akshay’s exercise. At this point of time, Jiah had two forks and two spoons in her bag, and eeks, used ones!
Completely ignorant of what was happening around her, Jiah kept chatting with Deepika and Lara. A source says, “It was very difficult for both the girls to control their laughter but somehow they did.”
Slowly, the gang passed all the spoons and forks to Akshay and Ritesh who eventually ended up putting all of them (14 forks, 14 spoons, two belonging to each one of them on the table) into Jiah’s bag.
After sometime, Akshay and Ritesh returned to the table. Five minutes later, the waiter came in with the bill and exclaimed, “Gosh! Where are all the forks and spoons? If you don’t mind, I will have to check your bags.”
Jiah, who was sitting at the corner near the waiter, had her bag checked first. When the forks and spoons tumbled out of her bag, Jiah was left astounded and had no clue how to explain it.
The mischievous company burst out laughing. This is when they disclosed the whole plan and how they had ganged up against her. Naturally, the waiter too was a part of the game plan.
And what did a mortified Jiah do? “Nothing, what could she do?” our source said. Director of Houseful, Sajid Khan, confirmed the story.
