Amitabh Bachchan plays prank, Sarika into tears

While Amitbah Bachchan is famous for his imposing height and baritone voice, very few people realize that he has a tremendous sense of humor. The living legend is at present shooting for his first ever fictional TV series ‘Yudh’. One of his co-stars is veteran actor Sarika who has said on record that one of the reasons she joined this project was the chance of working with Big B. But what happened on the sets recently was not something Sarika had expected. It looks like Bachchan decided to play prankster on the sets.

The two were shooting a scene where Sarika slams the door on Big B’s face. According to a source on the set, Sarika was very careful not to hit Big B while slamming the door, “There was a scene in which Sarika was supposed to bang the door on Amitabh Bachchan’s face. Sarika on her part was being extra cautious to make sure that she doesn’t hurt the star.”  The source has described what happened while filming the scene. He said, “The moment Sarika shut the door on his face he screamed loudly scaring not only Sarika but the entire unit pretending that he got hurt.” But just when Sarika was close to tears, Big B opened the door and started laughing at her, revealing that it was just a prank.

In the series Big B plays businessman Yudhishtir Sikarwar and Sarika essays the role of his former wife. Sarika has also worked with Amitabh Bachchan in the yet to be released film, ‘Shoebite’ which is directed by Shoojit Sircar.
