Bollywood star Shah Rukh Khan was recently left fuming when the Egyptian comedian and host of Ramez Underground, Ramez Galal, pranked him on his show, reported Hindustan Times. The actor was clearly not amused by the idea and came really close to punching Galal.
Shah Rukh was shooting in the deserts of Dubai with TV presenter Nishan, who was also a victim of the prank. Ramez put on a Komodo dragon costume and came hissing towards Shah Rukh and the others. The Raees star tried to splash some sand at him but to no avail. After a few more moments of torture, Ramez finally revealed that it was all a prank by lifting up his mask.
Unfortunately, Shah Rukh refused to take it sportingly and lashed out at Ramez. “This is nonsense…. you got me all the way from India to do this kind of stuff?” he said. Ramez apologised to the actor several times but Shah Rukh told him not to speak to him and asked for his team to be called. When Ramez would still not stop talking and apologising, Shah Rukh pushed him to the ground and made a fist right above his face as if to hit him. “You want me to make this funnier?” he asked him and then went on to drag him on the ground by his leg.
Ramez, sensing that Shah Rukh is still angry at him, started singing Marjani Marjani from the actor’s film Billu Barber. Shah Rukh finally let out a smile but still went to his car without accepting Ramez’s apology.
The comedian even posted a selfie with SRK on Twitter but it cannot be said for sure if the picture was taken before or after the prank. However it was revealed later on that even SRK’s reaction was staged. He did put up a great act though. Didn’t he?
