Mumbai: Bollywood khiladi Akshay Kumar is ready to surprise all with his upcoming act in Shirish Kunder’s ‘Joker’. Going by the high spirits of director Kunder, Akki’s next is all set to transform his image from that of a slapstick comedy king to something you could never imagine.

Apparently, it seems Kunder has joined the joined the league of his brother-in-law Sajid Khan, with his claims calling ‘Joker’ a super hit even before the film has released. Until now, only Sajid Khan indulged in claiming his films to be hits even before it hit the marquee, but now Shirish too has become over confident with his Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha starrer ‘Joker’.

Akshay hasn`t tasted box office success since some time now, but Shirish is sure that ‘Joker’, starring will set the box office registers ringing. Talking to a daily, Shirish claimed, "Joker will take Akshay`s career to a new level and change his image. It`s a sure shot box office success."

Well, let’s hope the tall claim coming from the co-maker of ‘Tees Maar Khan’ does not turn out to be a joke!
