You had us at 'big excitement,' Mr Gupta.
Nobody suspected a thing until his big reveal at the end of day - too late for those of us in the media who had already published the story! It was just Sanjay Gupta's little joke, in honour of April Fools' Day, and with Abhishek Bachchan as his presumably willing accomplice.
And April Fool's Day comes to an end and so does my joke of Abhishek Bachchan doing a cameo in JAZBAA. ??? Cheers all. ???— Sanjay Gupta (@_SanjayGupta) April 1, 2015
Mr Gupta spent a happy few hours gleefully tweeting snippets from newspapers who bought the joke.
Meanwhile, Jazbaa, which also features Irrfan Khan and Shabana Azmi, is slated to release on October 9.
