Take a pair of brats to a park,allow them to unleash their madness,and what you get is a big mess to clean. This was precisely the scenario at the Washington DC park in San Francisco,where during the shoot of Anjaana Anjaani,Ranbir Kapoor and Priyanka Chopra indulged in a messy cake fight. The fight started when Kapoor flung a piece of cake at Siddharth Anand,the films director,who in turn threw it at Chopra. Soon,the entire crew of the movie joined in. Now this is what you call,having your cake and eating it too.
