Mumbai: Actress Shilpa Shinde, who plays Koel in `Chidiyaghar`, almost lost her heartbeat when co-actor Paresh Ganatra played a prank on her.

Sumit Arora, who plays Gomukh Narayan in the SAB TV show, and Paresh`s watch and IPod went missing. On the same day Shilpa lost her gold chain. Everyone on the set was convinced that there was a thief on the sets and Shilpa announced that she was going to file a police complaint about the thefts.

But on the same evening her gold chain was found and a little later Sumit`s and Paresh`s belongings were also found and at the same place where Shilpa`s gold chain was found.

It was too much of a coincidence for Shilpa and she realised it was a prank.

"These guys have been trying to pull a prank on me for quite a few days but each time I figured it out. I actually skipped a heart beat when I realised my chain had gone missing. Their pranks finally get a smile on everyone`s face and all is well that ends well," Shilpa said in a statement.

Paresh said Shilpa is a smart girl and it was not easy to fool her.

"Our attempts to catch her off-guard always failed. We had to find a way to fool her. So this time while planning a prank on the cast and crew, we saw an opportunity to target Shilpa and changed our plan accordingly. Apart from the two of us, no one knew anything about it and their reactions were genuine which made Shilpa believe everything."
