New Delhi: Shirish Kunder`s 3D movie "Joker", starring Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha, will release Aug 30 next year.

"`Joker` release date confirmed, to arrive on 30th August, 2012," Kunder posted on micro-blogging site Twitter.

The 38-year-old, who is married to choreographer-turned-director Farah Khan, says the dates will not clash with Kabir Khan`s "Ek Tha Tiger", which has Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif.

"`Joker` is releasing two weeks after `Ek Tha Tiger`. Don`t worry, not clashing, would never do that," he further tweeted.

The film is being jointly produced by Kunder and Farah`s Three`s Company and Akshay`s Hari Om Entertainment Company.

Kunder, who made his directorial debut with "Jaan-E-Mann" in 2006, is also working on his action comedy, "Kick". A remake of 2009 Telugu film with the same name, the film is being produced by Sajid Nadiadwala and features Salman and Sonakshi Sinha in the lead roles.

"We start shooting `Kick` in June," he said.
