Akshay Kumar is known to be a huge prankster. Not one of his co-stars may have been spared from Akki's pranks. And when we exclusively interviewed Anil Mange (who is playing Akshay Kumar's friend in SINGH IS BLIING), we just had to ask him if he also was target to Akshay Kumar's pranks!
Not able to control his laughter, Anil Mange revealed, “Yes, yes. I wasn't spared for even one day. Oh god there are so many, which one should I tell you? There's a scene in the promo when I'm sitting in the car and telling him ‘Aage badh' (move ahead). Before that scene, I went out of the car. Prabhu sir had called me to explain a scene. Then Akshay sir was like, ‘Come, jaldi baith' (sit fast). So I sat. There was a cushion on the seat, and underneath Akshay sir had kept a bottle open. My whole pant was wet. And he's looking at me and laughing! Then they asked if we were ready for the shot, after which we immediately went for a take.”
And telling us about another experience with prankster Akshay Kumar, Anil Mange says, “He (Akshay Kumar) has a Surya prakash oil which will make your eyes water if it touches your nose. I once asked him how does it work. He told me to sit. I knew something was wrong and got up. He then applied the oil on his body and told me to smell it. Just as the oil touched my nose, my eyes started watering. Then I got to know that I wasn't the only one who's been pranked.”
Inspite of all the pranks he's been targeted with, Anil Mange was all praises for Akshay Kumar. “He's (Akshay Kumar is) fun. You don't feel like you're working with a senior actor. He's very supportive, kind and at the same time very naughty. He's prankster number one,” concluded Anil Mange.
