Video: When Parthiv Patel was pranked on MTV Bakra
There was a time when ‘MTV Bakra’, which used to be aired on MTV, was a hugely popular show among the youth in particular with famous comedians Cyrus Broacha & Cyrus Sahukar and their team pulling pranks on not just ordinary citizens but also some eminent personalities.
While film stars made regular appearances on the show, a few cricketers also were at the receiving end of their pranks. We all know about the famous prank on Rahul Dravid, but he wasn’t the only one who was stumped with wicketkeeper-batsman Parthiv Patel being another player whose leg was pulled rather successfully.
Having just turned 18 at the time, Parthiv was driving for an MTV shoot, at the request of his driver who claimed to have some pain in his chest, when he was pulled up by a couple of actors posing as traffic inspectors. Despite producing his driving license, the inspectors insisted that he is just 17 years old and that his license is not valid. Parthiv was eventually let off, but not before being made to apologise repeatedly despite no wrongdoing on his part.
While Parthiv was certainly not amused at the time of the incident, the same cannot be said of those watching who certainly were in stitches at Parthiv's expense.
