Mumbai: Akshay Kumar’s banner Hari Om Productions has signed Bollywood’s youngest girl Sonakshi Sinha for Sirish’s Kunder’s ‘Joker’, India’s first 3-D magnum opus. Akki will be seen romancing the ‘Dabangg’ hottie in the film.
Editor and filmmaker Sirish Kunder believes that Akshay and Sonakkshi’s pair will be refreshing and that the duo will look great together on-screen.
While talking to a news daily, Sirish said, "Joker will be India`s first 3-D magnum opus. And the reason why I`ve signed Sonakshi is because she is ideally suited for the role. Also, Akshay has acted with almost every heroine on the scene. Sonakshi and he are a fresh pair; the casting is already creating ripples.``
And the youngest star kid of Bollywood, Sonakshi is very excited about her latest flick with the action master.
Expressing her excitement, Sonakshi, while talking to the news daily said, "I got to work with one superstar in Dabangg and now I`m getting an opportunity to work with the second one. Very few people get a break such as this. The fact that Joker will be in 3-D is taking my excitement to a whole new level."
‘Joker’ is not a superhero film and Akki is certainly not playing a clown. The Khiladi said, “"Joker is not a super-hero film. It is not about me wearing some clown`s clothes or being part of a circus. Why it is called Joker is something you`ll have to wait to know. However, I can tell you, it is going to be one of the most technically advanced movies made in India. Children and adults are going to love it. The story moves from a village to NASA and well after that there`s some suspense involved.``
Akki’s banner has produced commercial flicks like ‘Sing is Kingg’, ‘De Dana Dan’, ‘Khatta Meetha’, ‘Waqt-A Race Against Time’. Farah Khan will also direct a film for Akshay titled, ‘Three is Company’.
Now, will ‘Joker’ be a smashing hit at the Box Office is something to wait and watch.
