When Shilpa Shetty stripped!
Demi Moore stripped in Striptease to raise enough money to get custody of her daughter from her ex-husband. Our very own Shilpa Shetty did it, albeit as a prank on director Anurag Basu. The Murder director, however, is yet to recover from the shock.

Recently, when Anurag was shooting with Shilpa for his forthcoming film Metro at a five-star hotel in Juhu, the actress thought of pulling a fast one on him. Immediately after pack-up, Shilpa went to her make-up room and immediately called Anurag.

"Shilpa thought of playing a prank on Anurag and she took everyone into confidence. Anurag is a simple person and Shilpa wanted to do something which would make him nervous. She thought of doing a striptease in front of Anurag," says our source.

As soon as Anurag entered the make-up room, Shilpa locked the room and just like any Bollywood actress, she told Anurag: "Now I am going to strip!"

Anurag, who did not know it was a prank, was totally out of sorts. He was nervous and even before he could say anything to Shilpa she took off her skirt.

Anurag shut his eyes, thinking he would get scandalised. But when he heard Shilpa laughing, he slowly opened his eyes only to see her standing in her capris.

"Hey, who told you?" asks Anurag, when we got in touch with him.

"It's true that Shilpa tried to play a prank on me, and knowing her as a vibrant actress I was taken aback when she claimed that she would strip. She actually took off her skirt and I didn't know that she was wearing a pair of (capris) jeans underneath. She is a crazy girl and whenever she is around the entire unit laughs and enjoys the work.

The film also stars Shiney Ahuja, Konkona Sen Sharma, Irfan Khan and Ayesha Takia.
