Ajay Devgn's 'Prank' Sharing Kajol's Number - Who Was The Joke On Exactly?

New Delhi: 

Highlights

  1. Ajay shared what appeared to be Kajol's number on Twitter
  2. "Looks like your pranks are out of the studios now," Kajol tweeted
  3. Ajay Devgn is producing Helicopter Eela, starring Kajol

This week began with a resounding bang on Twitter when actor Ajay Devgn shared what appeared to be his wife Kajol's number on Monday evening. "Kajol not in country, coordinate with her on WhatsApp xxxxxxxxxx," he tweeted to instant astonishment online. It seemed quite clear that Ajay's account had not been hacked - no other suspicious posts were shared either on his Twitter or his Instagram. The actor appeared to have accidentally posted Kajol's contact details - he also appeared to not have noticed and the tweet remained posted for all the world to see. They did, and shared screenshots of messages they had sent Kajol, several of them asking her to turn her phone off. Some hours later, Ajay Devgn - a notorious prankster on film sets - posted a second tweet claiming he had been trolling Twitter. This morning, Kajol tweeted to say he was not to bring his pranks home.

Who, however, was the joke really on? Because turns out, the number Ajay Devgn posted wasn't fake - was he trolling his wife, then? If he was, if Ajay Devgn really did share Kajol's actual number, she can't be amused at all, no matter what she says on Twitter. Also, this likely violates Twitter's rules - just days ago, Manmarizyaan director Anurag Kashyap's tweet was forcibly taken down after he shared contact details for his film's producer. Ajay Devgn's tweet was not taken down, which is also confusing.

Ajay seems extremely pleased with his 'prank,' intentional or accidental, and not only gleefully retweeted posts from some users who appeared to have got the joke (we certainly didn't) but also posted this:

 

 

Today, he's peacefully posting pictures from the first day filming his new project Taanaji.

 

 

Business as usual in the Devgn household? Maybe. But is Kajol, currently promoting her film Helicopter Eela, going to change her number, now that everyone has it?
