Salman and Katrina Fall Prey to Joker
Directed by Shirish Kunder, Joker began filming in Febuary, and set locations so far have included Chandigarh and Ludhiana.
Kunder describes his new undertaking as “a tale of underdogs fighting for victory, liberally treated with kick-ass humour and just a bit of sci-fi.”
The film highlight is supposed to be an elaborate dance sequence starring Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha as well as Katrina and Salman.
Unsurprisingly Bollytown has been speculating whether the couple will be able to overcome their differences. However, sources reveal that both parties have been acting quite civilly. “They share a very cordial relationship, since Katrina is quite close to Salman’s family. There shouldn’t be any awkward moments between the two.”
According to the sources, “Joker is a big film, and adding Salman and Katrina to the mix was useful to get people talking—it’s about publicity. The producers always planned an elaborate dance sequence. Akshay and Sonakshi, as the leads, will obviously be the feature, but Kunder saw an opportunity in Salman and Katrina, and he went for it.”
When asked about the casting choice, Kunder reportedly said: “things are definitely moving in that direction. However, I don’t want to reveal too much. Let that be a surprise for a while, naa! Why let the cat out of bag so soon?”
Hopefully Kunder’s cat/Kat pun isn’t indicative of the movie’s humour or the audience will be the victims of this Joker.
