Since JOKER was largely shot in chroma with space being made for VFX being added during the post-production, it actually required a lot of scenes where actors had to shoot with non-existent entities. No wonder, at times even Akshay Kumar, who has been in the business of making movies for over two decades, used to wonder how the final product would look like.

"I actually enjoy it when an actor is left with so many questions because I know that when the final product would be out, he would be amazed," smiles Shirish Kunder, the film's director, "I remember that happening to Akshay when he was amazed at the space shuttle sequence at the beginning of JAAN-E-MANN. When we had shot that, there was just a green curtain and in the final print we had an entirely different world. I am sure when he would see what we have managed with JOKER; it would be time to get amazed all over again."

He understands that since Bollywood is seeing an advent of VFX even now, seasoned actors like Akshay are bound to ask him dozens of questions before they deliver a shot.

"These are actors who have been working with senior directors for a very long time so they are bound to doubt a newcomer like me when I try a different genre and style," smiles Shirish, "Now for a film like JOKER I can't even show them a DVD of some other film and say that 'See, here is a reference point'. Reason being that JOKER doesn't have one. The only thing that an actor can do is trust me and this is what Akshay has done."

We too would know once the film releases on 31st August.
