April Fool's Day is here, so you need an arsenal of hilarious pranks that you can play on friends, family members and (especially) bitter enemies.

So here's a litany of the best pranks from Bollywood, Hollywood and TV series for inspiration.

Ishq

Remember this film starring Aamir Khan, Juhi Chawla, Kajol and Ajay Devgn?

This is one of the most hilarious scenes in the history of pranks. We see the funnier side of Aamir Khan as he stabs Juhi Chawla with a fake knife and she recoils in horror.

Zindagi Na Milegi Doobara

The film follows four men on their last hoorah before one of them takes the big leap into marriage. This scene has the quartlet prank a stranger in the toilet. They act like an earthquake is happening, and while the guy in question starts trying to duck, they laugh and leave in their car.

Cocktail

The fake 'Mein tumhaare bache ki maa banne wali hu' prank is more hilarious when the setting is a foreign country. Deepika Padukone shines in this one.

Andaz Apna Apna

Since Aamir and Salman Khan are wooing Raveena Tandon, Aamir tries to get Salman out of the way by putting laxatives in his food:

Matilda

The film adaptation of Roald Dahl's book of the same name is full of pranks. Matilda glues her fathers beloved accessory of choice to his head in this one:

Mean Girls

From the treasure trove of moments on how to sabotage your girlfriends' lives, here's one of the best Regina George moments:

Harry Potter & the Prisoner of Azkaban

The Office

Jim from The Office is the king of pranksters. Jim's Stapler-in-jello prank is one of the most famous pranks he plays on Dwight:

The Big Bang Theory

The Big Bang Theory's early seasons are full of the cast pranking each other on screen, but this one where Sheldon tries to prank Howard and instead Howard manages to turn the prank around is one of the most hilarious episodes of the show:
