Akshay Kumar, one of the well known Bollywood actors was surprised when the New York Police Department officer brought the actor to a halt after he was done with shopping in a mall at New York. He was asked to pull over and confirm about his identity.
Later, it was realised that the Indian Bollywood actor was pranked by the NYPD officer, as the officer was aware of who he was – a big name in the movie industry. The main reason for the pullover was that the officer, who was an admirer of the actor wanted to play a prank on the actor. Later on, the actor also posed for pictures along with the officer.
How big a relief must it have been for Akshay, when he came to know that it was nothing serious, but a small attempt of prank by the NYPD officer. But, there has been instances, when Indian actors have been held in USA, like Irfan Khan, who has been stopped by immigration authorities in the US airport. Also well known global star, Shahrukh Khan, last year was detained by the US authorities. (Both the Khan's case were not pranks).
On the bollywood sets, the Indian actor is said to be one of the biggest prankster. But, the NYPD officer got a taste of his own medicine in New York.
