Whatwith Shirish Kunder’s’Joker’ on its waywithout any activepromotions taking place, it would suggest all is not well with the team since completion of the production. One would be right in this assumption as news has it that Akshay Kumar has vowed never to work with Kunder or Farah Khan again.
As reported by Mid-Day, Kumar is unhappy with ‘Joker’ creatively and has therefore remained away from the film in the run upto its release. A source from the unit said, “Akshay Kumar is someone who would never leave a film incomplete. His past record proves that he has never left a film mid-way. He was creatively dissatisfied with the film as he felt cheated that whatever was promised to him was never delivered. In spite of all this, he completed the film and then decided to distance himself”.
Kumar was told by Kunder that the movie would go on the floors in 3D and also that it had been shot accordingly but this has not happened. It is thought Kumar also had an objection to the inclusion of the track I Want Fakht You but again his cries went unheard. It seems he wasn’t entirely happy with Shah Rukh Khan being a part of promotions either.
Kumar is currently busy with the schedule of Milan Luthria’s next and was therefore unavailable for comment.
