6000 fools gather at a hilltop

April Fool's Day is a day when people play prank and practical jokes on each other. It can be hilarious at the other person's expense but of course there is a boundary where the pranks shouldn't go overboard. A radio station in India, has gone overboard with their pranks causing a whole lot of inconvenience to people.

Recently a report highlighted that more than 6,000 people fell for an April Fool prank by a radio station in the south Indian city of Bangalore when they gathered for the supposed arrival of Bollywood stars Priyanka Chopra, Bipasha Basu and Katrina Kaif to inaugurate its studio at a hilltop.

According to Tamil Nesan, the prank created such a buzz that people travelled 60km to the scenic Nandi Hills station to catch a glimpse of the Bollywood actresses.

The only beneficiary was the horticulture department, which raked in Rs70,000 (RM4,670) in three hours from entry and parking fees for the “star-studded” event.

The crowd gathered at the hill as early as 3am, waiting for the gates to open at 6am
