After spending close to a year making TEES MAAR KHAN, the team of Akshay Kumar, Shirish Kunder and Farah Khan would now be getting together once more for JOKER. While Akshay Kumar will stay on to be the central protagonist, Farah and Shirish would switch roles. While Farah would be handling the production department, Shirish would be calling the shots as a director.
Confirms Farah, "Yes, we would now be starting JOKER now. We are already through with the ground work and it is time to start the principal shoot. The film will be made in 3D."
SHIRISH KUNDER, AKSHAY KUMAR and FARAH KHAN
JOKER stars Sonakshi Sinha opposite Akshay Kumar and is a joint production of Farah & Shirish's 'Three's Company' and Akshay's 'Hari Om Entertainment Co'.
"It should be a good experience to work with the same team after TEES MAAR KHAN," smiles Farah who would now be working with Akshay Kumar for the second time, "I have always believed that chahe picture ka jo bhi fate ho, I should enjoy those days that I have spent making a film. A process should be as enjoyable as the results."
Meanwhile plans are being put together to kick start the shoot of JOKER in January end/February beginning.
"That's right; our first schedule would kick start around this timeline. After that the next schedule would take place in April-May time frame", confirms Shirish who would be directing Akshay for the second time after JAAN-E-MANN, "Yet again we would be going to Malshej for the film's shoot."
Get started guys. We look forward to a happy ending here!
