However hard the production house claims that it is a marketing strategy the truth doesn't hide - it comes out with full power. The recent absence of Akshay Kumar from the promotions of Joker has been much in news, the actor hasn't however commented on the truth but it is obvious and the camp is missing the lead actor as well. As with Ra.One, Shirish Kunder decided to tweet this as well!
Shirish had recently tweeted "A true leader takes
responsibility for his team and leads them through thick and thin. Never abandons them and runs away."
As it is obvious this is aimed at Akshay Kumar - Shirish later deleted this tweet but the damage seems to be done. There was news that Akshay has fallen off with both Farah and Shirish and he has decided not to work any further with the team.
Although Farah Khan had recently denied any such event and mentioned that this is just another marketing tactics by the producers and Akshay will join the crew at the right moment. She immediately did change the topic on to the movie and says that it is fun filled.
Joker is jointly produced by the UTV Motion Pictures, Akshay Kumar’s Hari Om Productions and Farah Khan-Shirish Kunder’s, Three’s Company Productions Pvt Ltd.
The promotions are still on and recently the costumes worn by Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha was kept on auction, “Akshay and Sonakshi are a superhit pair who have helped many in their own ways and it is amazing that even their clothes can contribute for the welfare of society,” Farah added. “We will be giving the costumes to the agencies who will auction them for the benefit of animals. Given the popularity the two actors have, we are sure these costumes will fetch good money,” said Farah. The film releases on August 31.
Where Shirish is joining hands with SRK camp - he needs to also check with Akshay Kumar too and sort the issues if any with the actor and failure of this might lead to a nose dive at box office - as we still have the tiger roaring loud - so Joker will need Akshay Kumar to give the helping hand and stand tall when it releases this friday.
