Just a week remains for the release of JOKER and one waits to see how the promotion of the film takes a new turn in days to follow. Meanwhile, since a genre (of sci-fi in a village setting) this hasn't been tried in Hindi films at least, there are expectations of Akshay Kumar and Shirish Kunder bringing something new for the Indian screen.
"I agree that it won't be everyone's cup of tea. However it's something which is fun and exciting for the families to enjoy. Sometimes that is more important than going for an obvious wannabe blockbuster. For now it's time to let go and allow the aliens to take control," smiles Akshay .
However the promos so far have come across as a cocktail of various aspects. No wonder, there have been detractors too who have drawn comparisons with the likes of LAGAAN, SWADES, SIGNS and even TEES MAAR KHAN. No wonder, Akshay is mighty amused.
"Just because some out there find it typical, it has already been labeled despite only one promo to speak of. JOKER is JOKER, it has a little bit of everything and lots of everything else," states Akshay in a confident tone before signing off.
