Mumbai: Shirish Kunder says that he has scrapped plans to release his next project `Joker` in 3D, considering the fate of recent 3D films at the box office.

"JOKER will release in 2D format. It`s a decision taken by business heads based on the reactions to recent 2D and 3D films of big superstars," tweeted Kunder.

Some recent 3D films in Hindi include `RA.One`, `Don 2: The King Is Back` and `Dangerous Ishq`.

`Joker` features Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha.

Akshay plays a character who returns to his hometown - a place that`s so remote that it`s not even on the map. But sequence of events puts the little town not just on the country`s map, but makes it the focus of the entire globe.

The story also involves aliens.
