New Delhi, March 17(IANS) Bollywood's multi-faceted star Farhan Akhtar pulled off a joke on actress Shilpa Shetty by gifting her a book titled "How To Manage A Cricket Team Without Creating Controversy", authored by former Indian coach Greg Chappell.
Considering Shilpa has recently joined the bandwagon of actresses taking part in the Indian Premier League (IPL) with her boyfriend Raj Kundra buying a stake in the Rajasthan Royals, the actor-filmmaker-singer presented the book to her on his talk show "Oye! It's Friday".
"Both Farhan and Shilpa are very 'bindaas' (fun-loving and carefree) people. And with Shilpa having joined the IPL this year, Farhan made a little joke out of it by giving this book," a source from the unit told IANS.
Apart from this incident, the forthcoming episode of the show, to be aired Friday at 10 p.m on NDTV Imagine, would also reveal Farhan's new look for his next film "Kartik Calling Kartik". The actor sports a clean and cropped hairdo like his childhood friend Abhishek Bachchan's look in Mani Ratnam's big budget venture "Ravana".
