Pranks were the order of the day during the 40-day schedule of Golmaal 3 in Goa. Even Kareena Kapoor wasn’t spared. One night when she was watching a film in her room, along with her staff, Ajay Devgn, Shreyas Talpade and Tusshar Kapoor repeatedly banged on her door, only to disappear when someone opened it to check."Bebo (Kareena) knew it was one of us playing a prank on her, as when they opened the door, they would find no one outside. After a while, she got tired of opening the door and came to us saying she knew about the prank and was not going to fall for it," says Talpade.
While she was talking to the other co-stars, Talpade slipped into her room and hid in her cupboard. "When she came back to her room, she and her staff were laughing at how the boys failed to pull off the prank on her. While saying this, she opened the cupboard and I jumped out. We yelled at the same time."
“Luckily she wasn’t angry but accepted that this prank worked. She has a sporting spirit that way,” says Talpade, who plays Laxman, Bebo’s best friend in the film. “My character Laxman stammers a lot and Bebo is the only one who waits to listen to me in the film. Our track has some rib-tickling moments.”
Rohit Shetty’s Golmaal 3 is the story of animosity between two sets of siblings within a family. “I play Gopal’s (enacted by Ajay Devgn) brother. Gopal, a softie at heart, loses his cool at the drop of a hat and I try to pacify him all the time,” says Talpade.
He admits that Ajay Devgn is the leader of the brat pack, saying, “Ajay is a super prankster on the set. You have to keep a constant vigil because you never know what he’ll do next.”
