April fool MTV style

The "best'' part of "extraa innings'' might be over. But for those who shed a few tears last Sunday for other reasons than the end of the Cricket world Cup, now have some hope. A chance to grab some "extra'' overs without the additional `a' and on a different channel. But this is a role most people would "love'' to see her in -- as a "Bakra'' on MTV.

Her stint with the game might be over, but it seems her popularity is not waning. And on April 1, when MTV is going all out to fool celebrities, Mandira Bedi will definitely generate TRPs.

With a little help from her friends, Kapil Dev and Charu Sharma, Cyrus Broacha, manages to trick her. A great day to watch the most embarrassing moments of your favorite small-screen stars, while they happen. It is an opportunity to watch candid television live.

From the right batting order, the "Big B'' of MTV, as Cyrus is popularly known, makes all the "wrong'' moves on the sets of "Boogie Woogie''. Teaming up with co-host Ravi Behl, they manage to give Naaved Jaffery the fright of his life.

Moving from game-shows to daily soaps, the Bakra team manages to bring a dead man back to life. An impossibility in real life, it manages to work perfectly in "reel''. Rakshanda Khan gets a rude shock when the co-star of "Kya Hadsa Kya Haqeekat'' makes a nightmare come true.

Airing this Tuesday, MTV will celebrate April 1 as "Bakra Din'' in memory of many gags played and in the anticipation of many more to come.
