Akshay Kumar vows never to work with Shirish Kunder?
Buzz is that actor Akshay Kumar and director Shirish Kunder are not on good terms after shooting for their upcoming film Joker. The actor-director duo do not even want to talk to each other, reports Mid-Day.
It is said that Akshay Kumar is not happy with the film creatively and this is the reason for the clash between the two. It is also known that Akshay will never be working with Farah Khan and Shirish Kunder now, according to the tabloid.
A source told Mid-Day,“Akshay Kumar is someone who would never leave a film incomplete. His past record proves that he has never left a film mid-way. He was creatively dissatisfied with the film as he felt cheated that whatever was promised to him was never delivered. In spite of all this, he completed the film and then decided to distance himself.”
It is reported that Akshay Kumar will not be involved in the promotions of the film.

I don't target 100 crore club: Akshay Kumar
Akshay Kumar certainly feels that comedy has to be an inherent element in each of his films. Starting off with a 'family comedy' Housefull 2 and then an 'action comedy' Rowdy Rathore, both of which also facilitated an entry for him in the 100 crore club, he is now jumping genres with 'sci-fi comedy' Joker. Moreover, the promos have pretty much indicated that this is a new world that Shirish Kunder has created with the film. One can well expect a different experience for Akshay to be finding himself in this world.
Akshay Kumar to redub for Joker
Shirish Kunder's upcoming film Joker starring Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha will be redubbed. However, the makers of the film will only redo the sequences which feature Akshay referring certain Indian states in the film. The reason behind this is that since the film is said to be based in a fictional village in India, there cannot be any reference to existing Indian states, namely Rajasthan, MP and UP.
