The entire crew of Lapataganj along with two in-house pranksters — Biji Pandey (Abbas) and Preeti Amin (Surili) planned a prank to scare Rohitash Gaur (Mukundi Lal).Gaur was called in late during the Bhoot episodes of Lapataganj. Abbas and Preeti were aware of this and they decided to pull a prank on him.
They shared the plan with Sonal, who is playing a tantric in the show, and she dressed up in white and hid behind the peepal tree.By the time the shoot started, Rohitash was talking on the phone and was taking a stroll. As he reached the tree, Sonal, dressed in white with lots of make-up, jumped out at him and began making weird, loud noises. To add to the effect, a light beam was thrown on her face.
He started screaming, “Bhoot, bhoot, bachao... (Ghost! Help!) and started running. Hearing his screams, the crew members rushed to find him. He realised he had been fooled soon after. He was very disturbed and even stated that such pranks were no joke since they would be fatal for people with heart problems. He is soon planning to surprise Abbas, he winked.
