Well,these were such mischief makers!
There’s never been a child who’s not troubled his/her mom, especially during childhood (some still continue the trend during adulthood). Recently, Hollywood hottie Jennifer Aniston confessed to stealing money from her mum’s purse to spend on videogames and at the local arcade with her pals. On the occasion of Mother’s Day, we asked celebs what mischief they did during their childhood to trouble their mommy dearest.
Dino Morea, actor
It’s quite difficult for any mother to deal with three mischievous sons. The three of us were very naughty and would play pranks on people around when our mother would take us shopping or when attending weddings, and the results always left her embarrassed and pissed off. My mom would give us impromptu tests on multiplication tables and I would cheat by peeking into a paper with the answers stuck to the chair. I got caught a few times and got a spanking. My younger brother is eight years younger to me, and when he was a baby, my older brother and me would have pram races and twice my younger brother fell off the pram. When my mother learnt of this, she gave us a good whacking.
Sorabh Pant, stand-up comedian
I would steal money from my mom to buy GI Joe figures and cars. My mother never asked me about it and was one step ahead as she would be unaffected if she would see me returning from school with a brand new toy. I would give my parents the ultimate torture by failing at every subject possible despite have numerous tutors. In fact, I had more tutors than subjects! I still insisted on failing at every subject because it was easier than passing!
Ali Fazal, actor
I remember, I had once ordered pizza on behalf of my class teacher and it came to the classroom. Fifteen pizzas! What I didn’t realise is that I had ordered it from my mom’s mobile phone, so when the pizzas came, she came with it (she must have got a call back) and pretended to have gotten them for the entire class. Moms are moms. I wanted to pull one on my teacher and she pulled it on me.
Vir Das, actor
I was never a trouble child. My mother has been the most supportive force in my life. She is the rock of our family that we all gather around and she taught me to laugh at life. That’s a quality that defines my family and who I am as a person.
Purab Kohli, actor
I bunked a whole year of college and at the year end, I failed the class and did not get promoted. My mother, besides being disappointed was also very worried where I had been spending my time when I left home for college!
Aditya Hitkari, theatre personality
I’ve done tonnes of naughty things in my childhood. My mother is a surgeon and after school I would go to the hospital sometimes. When I was around six or seven, she asked me to sit quietly in one place. I sat outside the surgery room and the other doctors told me we have to give you anesthesia for surgery. They started prepping me for surgery because there was a surgery scheduled for a little boy that day and they thought it’s me! Thankfully, my mother found me in time. Another time I really troubled her, was when I wanted to learn the guitar but she told me to take piano lessons first. I agreed but I never went for months. I would go cycling, play football and do other things instead. Months later, when she went to pay the fee, they told her it’s pointless because I never went there!
Anushka Manchanda, singer
My mum had put a limit on the number of calls I was allowed to make to my friends. When I was 13-14, I didn’t have a cellphone, only a landline. She had put one of those sticky locks on the phone which covered the key pad. And so when I had to use the phone, I had to ask her to unlock it. One day, I took a butter knife got through the glue of the lock just enough to dial 161. That was the number that made your phone ring! So I would lift the receiver a bit when she wasn’t looking, stick my fingers in under the surface of the lock, wiggle them around enough to dial 161 and then put the phone down. Then when the phone would ring I’d be right next to it, and I’d answer it and pretend it was a friend of mine. While I was pretend-talking, I would stick my fingers back in onto the keypad and dial a friend’s number. I also started doing this when the phone wasn’t in her line of vision. I did this for a couple of months before she figured it out!
