Remember the Temptations Tour? Those brilliant Bollywood concerts in the early and mid-2000s spearheaded by Shah Rukh Khan and featuring the likes of Priyanka Chopra, Preity Zinta, Saif Ali Khan, Arjun Rampal, and Ashish Hegde among others. Weren’t their glitz, glam, energy, and razzle-dazzle simply infectious? Well, scores around the world certainly thought so, going by the sell-out crowds they played to the world over.
But have you ever thought what happened behind the scenes of these mega events. How did the stars, their backup performers, and backstage crew interact with each other while on tour for months on end? Was it all work, a mix of both, or did these guys indulge in a lot of fun and frolic backstage.

Imagine that simple guy’s plight and his subsequent relief when it was all revealed to be an elaborate prank. Watch how it all went down for yourself below:
