Riteish went down memory lane and recalled how Akshay once played a prank on him during the shoot of their 2007 film "Heyy Babyy".
Riteish said: "While we were shooting for 'Heyy Babyy', Akshay secretly took my phone and texted Vidya Balan, saying ‘I love you muah, muah, muah'. The funny part was that Vidya replied back writing ‘Muaaa Muaaa Muaaa (kisses)' (laughs). When I saw the message, I was taken aback, wondering why Vidya sent the message to me, without knowing a message had gone to her from my phone. It was later that I figured that both our phones were with Akshay! He always plays pranks with all of us."
Justifying himself, Akshay said: "Mazaa aata hai masti karne mein (it's fun playing pranks)."
Looks like Akshay secretly wanted to set up Riteish with Vidya like he has done with other actors like Sonam Kapoor to Anand Ahuja, Asin to Rahul Sharma and who later went on to be their life partners or it was just a prank on both his co-stars from Heyy Baby.
