Doesn't this look like fun? All of the stars seem to be in good spirits and happy to be chilling in each others' company.

A few days ago during a media interaction, Sonakshi and Akshay played a prank on reporters when Sonakshi playfully hit Akshay, which made him topple over from his chair and fall flat on his back. Later, of course, Taapsee clarified to the media that Akshay himself might have told Sonakshi to do that to scare the reporters present during the interaction.

While it was obviously staged from the looks of it, it certainly scared the reporters present! The cast frequently keeps sharing such photos and videos on social media to engage with fans and to keep them updated about the film's progress. Check out this Boomerang to see how much fun they're having!
