    Shirish Kunder's Joker is a sci-fi film starring Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha in the lead.

Director Shirish Kunder’s Joker is full of visual effects, what with aliens and UFOs being integral to the plot. The director is now cutting a fresh trailer of his forthcoming film to give a taste of these heavy-duty VFX to the audience, and has even roped in international technicians. “I am currently making a second trailer of Joker which will be laden with visual effects and many more things that we haven’t disclosed so far,” admits Shirish.

The trailer-in-making will apparently feature the much talked about UFO and aliens from the film. The makers have hired around 30 ace international technicians to cut this trailer, which will be aired a week before the film’s release. “Some very highly-qualified technicians are working on this visually attractive trailer. Prime Focus is also working with me and they have branches in New York and London. Technicians from those centres are making sure this trailer is of international standards,” says Shirish.

Ask Shirish what drove him to take this initiative and he says, “The idea was to do something different and woo audiences, like what we have been doing to promote the film so far.”

Jointly produced by Shirish and Farah Khan’s Three’s Company, actor Akshay Kumar’s Hari Om Productions and UTV Motion Pictures, the sci-fi drama starring Akshay and Sonakshi Sinha is set against the backdrop of a fictitious small town called Paglapur, where a UFO had landed years ago. Joker is set to hit theatres on August 31.
