Mumbai: Film editor-turned-director Shirish Kunder has decided to serve his fantasy adventure film in a crisp and entertaining way by narrating it in just 105 minutes.

"All action-packed big Hollywood family entertainers that kids from the world over have loved, like `Spiderman` and `Transformers` have a run time of approximately 90 mins. `Joker` is about one hour 45 mins and it has all the ingredients you need to enjoy a pure family entertainer," Kunder said.

"It`s a family film that will make you and your kids come out with a smile on your face," he added.

It was reportedly actor Akshay Kumar, the lead actor of the film, who insisted on keeping the film short for the kids` liking.

Kunder helmed his first film ‘Jaan-E-Mann’ in 2006. It did average business at the box office.

‘Joker’, which also features Sonakshi Sinha, will release Aug 31.
