Trickery is a frequent theme in shows, no matter what the genre is. So streaming these shows on April Fools’ Day is the perfect time to bring your funny side out. Whether you’re looking to copy a character or just enjoy their performance, we have 14 shows that will put you in the mood for pranks, tomfoolery, and practical jokes.

1. F.R.I.E.N.D.S

One of the most watched sitcoms of all time, ‘FRIENDS’ literally needs no introduction. People all over the world keep comparing their friends to Joey, Rachel, Ross, Phoebe, Monica, and Chandler – the ideal group of friends. This show is a goldmine of hilarious moments that are unforgettable. Also full of ridiculous pranks.

2. Deception

The Jack Cutmore-Scott starrer, ‘Deception’ is a story about Cameron Black who is the world’s greatest illusionist and prankster. The superstar magician Cameron joins the FBI as their consulting illusionist in order to help them solve crimes. However, after a point, his greatest secret was exposed leaving his career destroyed. Even worse, Cameron has good reason to believe this was no accident.

3. The Office

This U.S. adaptation of ‘The Office’ can literally crack you up in laughter instantly. Set at a paper company based in Scranton, the series is quite similar to that of Ricky Gervais’s British original. Steve Carell as Micheal Scott is the star of the show. The characters are based on the British show and one can easily connect with it, as we bet you too have people like this in your office as well. There’s Jim, the likable employee who’s a bit of an everyman. You also have Dwight, the co-worker who is successful but lacks common sense and social skill. Every character in the show is weird and good enough to entertain you.

4. Impractical Jokers

Q, Sal, Joe, and Murr are real-life buddies who often challenge each other to the most outrageous stunts and dare ever. Basically, you can’t afford to not complete the task and gets a thumbs down. The one with the most thumbs down gets punished. This is Comedy Central’s best-quirky show!

5. First Day of Camp

This Netflix original delivers a pitch-perfect satire of not only camp films, but also the ’80s. The jokes come at a relentless pace and even though the series is heavily playing into fun tropes, you’ll really have no idea where some of these ridiculous gags are heading.

6. New Girl

You can love and hate Jess for her idealism as you follow her journey with three male roommates! Nick is a law-school dropout, Schmidt thinks he is God’s gift to women and Winston is a former athlete whose career is about over. Hilarity ensues when such a diverse group of people live together. Coupled with awkward humor and light-hearted drama, this show is perfect for those want to unwind with a show that doesn’t require too much mental investment.

7.  The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

This Amazon Original show is everything one would love to watch in a show. Miriam “Midge” Maisel, 1958 New York City woman has everything that one can desire of. But things take a new turn and Midge discovers a previously unknown talent–one that changes her life forever. Donning new role, she storms the world of stand-up comedy. This is one of the most critically acclaimed shows and you just can’t miss it!

8. The Tick

Welcome to the world where superheroes are a real thing for decades now. An accountant with no superpowers somehow discovers that his city is owned by a supervillain. As he struggles to uncover this conspiracy, he comes in contact with a strange blue superhero. A hilarious watch indeed.

9.  How I Met Your Mother

12 years on television at the McLaren’s bar with Ted, Robin, Barney, Lily, and Marshall was indeed a legen-wait for it- dary affair! The versatility of its characters and the dynamism of the show was a stroke of genius for this cult show. Audiences were constantly piecing together the trail of clues to figure out who the ‘mother’ was. Coupled with flashbacks and forwards that tie together perfectly, Lily and Marshall’s couple goals, Robin’s badassery, Ted’s naivety and Barney’s awesomeness all come together to make this sitcom a classic.

10. 2 Broke Girls

Well, not everyone’s cup of tea but ‘2 Broke Girls’ is all about two waitresses at a greasy diner who develop a different friendship in the hopes of launching a successful business….but if only they can raise the money required for it.

Kareena Kapoor’s Pilates instructor Namrata Purohit on how the star shed 16 kilos to return to her svelte frame

Kareena Kapoor

Kareena Kapoor Khan wowed viewers by flaunting her svelte frame at a Singapore fashion event recently. However, walking the ramp for Manish Malhotra, the actor found herself battling criticism for having shed far too much weight than could have been appropriate. But the actor’s fitness trainer, Namrata Purohit, dismisses the suggestion that the actor has turned frail.

Kareena Kapoor

“The day we met, Kareena said she wants to be the fittest she has ever been,” Purohit tells mid-day. “She came to me 45 days after her son, Taimur, was born. She did not have a particular body size that she wanted to achieve. Kareena only wanted to be fit and flexible again. She has lost 16 kilos since we first started working out,” says Purohit, adding that the actor trained with her four times a week for an hour each day.

Kareena Kapoor

Kareena Kapoor has confessed her love for the fitness form, Pilates, with her graphic tees. Purohit says that the routine was essential since, after pregnancy, women can often lose control over their core muscles. “In Pilates, movement of the arms and legs are performed while keeping the core engaged. It was initially challenging for her to learn that, but she picked it up fast.”

Kapoor’s earnestness even earned her a special Pilates tee from Purohit. “I’m a tough one to please. The day she could co-ordinate every movement perfectly, I gave it to her.” Purohit adds that given that Kapoor had to shed her pregnancy weight, her routine focused on cardiovascular training. As for her diet, the new mommy followed a nutritious meal plan, but was permitted cheat days too. “I don’t believe in stringent dieting. Kareena is allowed to cheat whenever she wants.”

Jacqueline Fernandez

Celebrations galore for the team of Race 3 as they celebrated the birthday of Arpita Khan Sharma’s son Ahil in Abu Dhabi yesterday. Jacqueline Fernandez was seen recreating her chartbuster ‘Jumme Ki Raat’ from Kick along with Arpita Khan Sharma. Marking the occasion of Salman Khan’s nephew Ahil’s birthday, the cast and crew of Race 3 put on their party shoes. Jacqueline Fernandez took to social media to give us glimpses of the crazy fun night as she and Arpita Khan Sharma recreated the iconic step of ‘Jumme ki Raat’ from the Salman Khan-Jacqueline Fernandez starrer Kick.

Arpita was seen mimicking Salman Khan in the song as the duo were goofing around. Holding Jacqueline’s top in her mouth, Arpita danced along with Jacqueline. The 2014’s thriller Kick gave the audience one of the most loved pair of Salman Khan and Jacqueline Fernandez along with yet another chartbuster by the actress. Race 3 brings back the super hit jodi of Sajid Nadiadwala’s Kick as Salman Khan and Jacqueline Fernandez are seen sharing screen space for the second time. There has been immense anticipation amongst the audience to witness the duo on screen again.

Known as the Queen of party anthems, Jacqueline Fernandez has innumerable party chartbusters to her credit like ‘Sooraj Dooba Hai Yaaro’, ‘Lat Lag Gayee’, ‘Jumme Ki Raat’, ‘Chalti Hai Kya 9 as 12’ amongst many others. Jacqueline Fernandez was seen rocking the party along with Bobby Deol, Daisy Shah and Arpita Khan Sharma amongst others at the birthday celebrations of Ahil. The actress was also seen grooving to her chartbuster ‘Sooraj Dooba Hai Yaaro’.

The actress is currently shooting for Race 3 in Abu Dhabi along with Salman Khan, Anil Kapoor, Bobby Deol, Daisy Shah and Saqib Saleem. Shooting for the action sequences has already begun in Abu Dhabi, wherein Jacqueline will be performing stylized action sequences. The actress will be seen performing MMA techniques involving a lot of kicks and punches. She has been prepping for 2 hours daily to master her action moves. While the actress has earlier been part of action flicks, Jacqueline Fernandez never performed hand to hand combat, her sequences always included weapons. It would be for the first time that the actress will be seen doing bare hand action. After Kick, Race 3 will be Jacqueline Fernandez’s second Eid release.

Richa Chadha has established a permanent place in Bollywood through non-conventional roles from portraying a hot-headed don in Fukrey to a small-town girl fighting taboos around sex in Masaan

Richa Chadha

Richa Chadha says a true feminism wave will arrive in Bollywood when better roles will be written for women. “Actresses are speaking up, which is a good thing because actresses are speaking up more than actors. But I don’t know whether there is a feminism wave in Bollywood (or not),” Richa told IANS.

“It will truly be amazing if better parts are written for women and better films are made with women and those films make money at the box office. Then we can truly say that it has arrived,” she added.

Richa has established a permanent place in Bollywood through non-conventional roles from portraying a hot-headed don in “Fukrey” to a small-town girl fighting taboos around sex in “Masaan”.

In fact, Richa is proud of her role as Bholi Punjaban in the “Fukrey” franchise. The second part of the franchise “Fukrey Returns”, which will premiere on the Indian small screen on Sunday on Zee Cinema, was also a hit. “The role helped me connect to a wider commercial audience. It was a good decision to do it. It is not an easy or a stereotypical character to play. It was the character a lot of people may or may not do especially in Bollywood because it is very risky…Taking the role was a calculated risk. I am happy,” she said.

Richa is hoping for the third part of the “Fukrey” franchise. “Third movie will happen, but director only knows when and what will the story,” she said.

‘Enough is enough’, says Nora Fatehi to trollers online

Nora Fatehi

Nora Fatehi, who is often trolled for her social-media posts, feels that cyber bullies have been feeling “too safe in the cyber world for too long”. She says, “Trolling is a cyber-crime and if you are caught for it, you cannot run away by saying that it is your opinion. Everyday there are people who have self-esteem issues or even worse, commit suicide because of trolls (sic).”

In contention for Salman Khan’s next, Priyanka Chopra said to be keen to bow out of Quantico

Still from Quantico
Still from Quantico

She may have made a splash in the West courtesy her Alex Parrish act, but mid-day has it that Priyanka Chopra is considering opting out of Quantico – blame it on her love for Bollywood movies. The actor, who made a pit stop in India last week before flying out to Ireland for the drama’s third season shoot, went through a few Hindi film scripts. Salman Khan’s Bharat was apparently one of the few that caught her fancy.

Priyanka Chopra

Says a source, “Priyanka was quite taken by the script of Bharat. What also added to her excitement was that it would give her the chance to team up with Salman after a decade. But she’s not signed on the dotted line yet.”

However, if she gives her nod to this project, it’ll throw a spanner in the next season of Quantico. An insider suggests that Priyanka Chopra is not too keen on the cop drama having a fourth season. “Priyanka feels the show will lose steam if they continue with more seasons. Before pursuing any more international offers, she wants to do a Hindi film.”

Salman Khan

Chopra is expected to return to India later this year after promoting the latest season of Quantico in the US. “Any clarity on Quantico’s next season will only come after the third season has been aired. She won’t say no to them if the next season is sanctioned, but she fears being repetitive,” adds the source. Chopra’s spokesperson refused to comment.
