Ram-Priyanka played a trick on Lakhia, sent fake wedding invites

Actors Ram Charan and Priyanka Chopra, who are working together in the "Zanjeer" remake, recently played a prank on the film's director Apoorva Lakhia by sending his wedding invitation to his friends.

The duo reportedly sent a text message from Lakhia's phone to everyone that his wedding is about to take place soon and they're invited.

The message read: "Hey. Hope you guys are doing fine. I have an announcement to make. I've finally decided to tie the knot. I know it's been long due. The official invite shall reach you soon. I want you all to be part of my big day, regards Apoorva."

And Lakhia ended up answering calls explaining the practical joke to everyone, including his puzzled parents, while Priyanka and Ram had a good laugh.

Will 'Grand Masti' spoil Aftab's marriage plans?

Actor Vivek Oberoi jokes that no father would allow his daughter to marry Aftab Shivdasani after watching him in "Grand Masti".

The adult comedy brings together Riteish Deshmukh, Aftab Shivdasani and Vivek on the big screen again after the 2004 hit "Masti".

Going by the promos, the film is replete with double-meaning dialogues.

"As far as me and Riteish are concerned, we are already married, but I am worried about Aftab, who is still single. Which girl would agree to marry him after watching 'Grand Masti'? No father will give away his daughter to Aftab after the film releases," Vivek said in a statement.

Directed by Indra Kumar, "Grand Masti" is slated to release Sep 13.
