Not many know about the naughty side of the serious-looking Prakash Jha. Recently, the producer played a wicked prank on his heroine Nikita Anand while shooting for DIL DOSTI ETC.
He told Nikita in front of the whole unit, that an assistant director (AD) had fallen head-over-heels in love with her. Just then, a shy AD came up to her and gave a long love letter written in shudh Hindi and Urdu, while Prakash Jha pushed Nikita to read it aloud.
When an embarrassed Nikita hesitated, the producer took over the letter and read it to the entire unit, making her want to wriggle out of the awkward situation. It's only two to three days later that the poor girl realized; Prakash Jha has actually played a huge prank on her.
What's more! To her amusement and surprise, she found out that the entire unit was hand-in-glove with the maker while she was being taken for a royal ride. But Nikita almost fainted when she got to know that the letter was penned by Prakash Jha himself!
