Shah Rukh Khan was left fuming when Egyptian comedian and host of Ramez Underground, Ramez Galal, pranked him on his show. The actor was clearly not amused by the prank and came really close to punching Galal.
Shah Rukh was in Dubai for an interview and was heading for a shoot in the desert with TV presenter Nishan, who was also involved with the prank. The driver ‘loses his way’ and lands the vehicle in quicksand. The car starts sinking and the driver ‘drowns’ in the sand. SRK tries his best to stay calm and keep a screaming Nishan and another man who was in the car, from sinking too.
Then Ramez puts on a Komodo dragon costume and comes hissing towards SRK and the others. SRK tries to splash some sand at him but the ‘dragon’ doesn’t budge. After a few more moments of torture, Ramez finally reveals to SRK that it was all a prank.
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 sh*t?,” 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, SRK 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 asks him then goes 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. 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.
Ramez has previously pranked many international celebrities, like Paris Hilton and Antonio Banderas. Paris even sued the show for staging a fake plane crash. It was later found out by TMZ that Paris was actually in on it and was faking her reaction the entire time.
