Mumbai: Considering Shirish Kunder has been promoting his upcoming flick ‘Joker’ in the most unusual of ways possible, roping in Shah Rukh Khan to participate in his promotional ventures isn’t exactly off the mark. Though Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha, the lead actors of ‘Joker’, haven’t been seen promoting ‘Joker’ a lot, Farah Khan, it seems, has other ideas in mind.

Recently, Farah had been to Mannat, Shah Rukh’s bungalow, to meet the actor and discuss their forthcoming production ‘Happy New Year’. Farah ended up striking gold for her husband Shirish at the meeting, and came out of SRK’s bungalow with a fun video starring the superstar and the aliens of ‘Joker’.

A source has revealed to a daily, “Farah had gone to meet SRK in the afternoon to discuss Happy New Year as he is leaving later this week for the shoot of Yash Chopra`s untitled film. After a while, they started chatting about ‘Joker’ and the aliens. Farah asked SRK if he wanted to see them, and he agreed. She made a quick call to the production house and told them to send the aliens to Mannat.”

“The aliens were spotted entering Mannat and SRK also did a fun video with them. Despite being busy with a photo shoot with Daboo Ratnani at Mannat, the actor did the video simultaneously for Farah,” added the source.

Later on, Farah Khan confirmed the news and added, “Shah Rukh is family and it was very sweet of him to take some time out for ‘Joker’.”

Whether the “sweetness” of SRK was another way to mend his soured relation with Shirish Kunder after the brawl that had taken place earlier this year or it is his friendship with Farah at the crux of it all, it would be pleasing to watch King Khan shake a leg with the aliens of ‘Joker’. The film is scheduled to release on August 31.
