Why is Akshay Kumar staying away from ‘Joker’ promotions?

We see only Sonakshi Sinha, the female lead of Joker, and item girl Chitrangda Singh endorsing the film at various dos, but the film’s real action hero Akshay Kumar is nowhere to be seen

Shirish Kunder’s upcoming film Joker, starring Akshay Kumar, Sonakshi Sinha and some creepy vegetable-ish aliens is being promoted heavily on various reality shows and promotional events. But promotional activities for Kunder’s quirky movie are being noticed for an unusual reason: the conspicuous absence of Akshay Kumar. While we see Sonakshi Sinha, who is playing the female lead opposite Akki, and Chitrangda Singh, who does an item song, making their presence felt at various reality shows, Joker’s lead hero Akshay Kumar seems to have abandoned Shirish’s fantasy film.

Akshay recently appeared on the finale of a dance reality show, where he promoted his next venture Oh My God happily, but did not utter a single word about Kunder’s Joker. On another singing reality show – an ideal platform to promote films – we saw only Sonakshi Sinha endorsing Joker, without her co-star. Clearly Akki is trying to stay away from the film. Meanwhile, Kunder and his wife Farah Khan roped in the Baadshah of Bollywood Shahrukh Khan to create a buzz about the film in the light of Akki’s deliberate absence.

So what’s the reason behind Akshay’s complete disinterest in Joker’s promotional activities?

We hear that the Khiladi Kumar was not particularly happy with director Shirish Kunder’s depiction of the story right from the start. And now Akki does not want to associate with the movie at all. If that was the case, then why did Akki sign on the dotted line at all, especially after delivering a massive dud at the box office with Kunder’s choreographer-turned-filmmaker wife Farah’s disastrous Tees Mar Khan?

    This movie looks horrible from these amateur stupid looking aliens. No wonder Akki stays away. What does farah have on SRK to get him to promote this crap I wonder? Ever since he hit her husband and they dragged SRK name through the mud then they met and suddenly are friends and he promotes hubby’s crap and will star in farah movie which seems they have blackmail type information on SRK it seems.
