He might be a doting husband to his director wife Farah Khan, but when it comes to work, filmmaker Shirish Kunder says they have different philosophies.



“I don’t understand Farah’s kind of cinema because I don’t make her kind of films. I experiment more, while her films are Bollywood-ish and larger than life,” says Kunder, who is wielding the megaphone for his Akshay Kumar-Sonakshi Sinha starrer

, a 3D venture.



The 38–year-old further says the couple doesn’t interfere in each other’s work. “We don’t get into each other’s area. I don’t advice her on her films and she doesn’t do that to me. We don’t tell each other how to do our work. I just tell her that I’m doing a film and that’s about it,” says the father of three.



Ask him about his forthcoming flick, and he says, “

Joker

has elements of sci-fi and a lot of humour and drama. It is very unusual in what we are doing, and not something that is usually seen here ( in Bollywood).”



“It is an underdog story about how individuals make it big in life and in the process, get help from aliens from a fictional planet,” he adds. Will

? “The benchmark keeps changing until a new one comes, and hopefully, a better one.”



Kunder was also pepped about the title of his project.



“Earlier, I was working on a superhero film by the same name, but that didn’t happen. So I wrote a new script and the title suited this film too,” he reveals.
