Viveik's midnight pranksJun 1, 2006 IANS
"Omkara' crewmembers were scared out of their wits when Viveik Oberoi played an elaborate prank on them at a picnic spot on the outskirts of Mumbai.
Viveik recalled the incident with glee: "Once, after shooting till late, we got a break the next day. So, I took a few people from the crew whom I had become friends with to a small picnic spot, Kates Point, in Mahabaleshwar.
"It was way past midnight. I had got drinks and food for them. We were all singing and dancing when somebody asked what place I had got them to.
"I told them it was the place where Kate, a 'phirangi' girl, had committed suicide during British rule. After her death the point was named after her... Everyone became silent. Suddenly there were those eerie sounds around. I told them that was her 'makbara', (actually, a view point built by the Maharashtra Tourism Development Corporation Ltd).
"I told them everyone who comes here has to pray for her soul's peace and make some offerings. I could see all of them offering wine and beer and strawberries... it was so hilarious... it took them two days to realise that it was a joke."
