If there is one IPL team that knows how to make its fans laugh, it is Rajasthan Royals. The trio of Yuzvendra Chahal, Devdutt Padikkal and KC Cariappa joined forces to trick their teammate Prasidh Krishna.
The trio staged a fake photo shoot for Prasidh and had him perform on the title track of the Hindi film Bhool Bhulaiya. Chahal, Padikkal and Cariappa also instructed the content team to take many retakes.
In a video tweeted by Rajasthan Royals, the trio can be seen enjoying themselves in a hotel room while watching Prasidh perform the song and pose for a celebration celebration.
After some time, Chahal, Padikkal and Cariappa came out of the room where the whole photo shoot was set up and apologized to Prasidh, who in return said it didn’t even feel like a joke and that he was happy in his own skin.
“Violence, violence, violence – Skiddy’s mood after this shoot, thanks to @devdpd07, @cariappa14 & @yuzi_chahal,” the franchise tweeted along with the video.

In the 2022 season, the Royals were impressive and are in second place on the points list.
The team led by Sanju Samson has done extremely well during the tournament. It is worth noting that both the orange cap and purple cap holders are from the Royals. While Jos Buttler (627 runs) holds the orange cap, Chahal (24 wickets) holds the purple cap.
Rajasthan Royals then face Chennai Super Kings in their final league game at Brabourne Stadium on May 20. The Royals need one win to qualify for the play-offs, which will take place in Kolkata and Ahemdabad.
Newcomer Gujarat Titans became the first team to seal their qualifying spot. The Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahemdabad is set to host the final of the 2022 IPL on May 29.
