Akshay Kumar-Sonakshi Sinha’s ‘Joker’ to release late next year
Shirish Kunder’s ambitious 3D film now has a release date, but that clashes with the release of Vikram Bhatt’s successful Raaz franchise
Apparently Shirish Kunder hasn’t learned much from his past mistakes. Remember Jaan-e-man, his debut film, which had Salman Khan and Akshay Kumar playing the lead roles? He released it alongside Shahrukh Khan’s Don. No wonder the film tanked, even though it did manage to get some vibe for the director going in the industry.

‘Koi Mil Gaya’, ‘Krrish’ and now ‘Krrish 2’ – a ‘trio’-logy!
The shoot for Krissh 2, the third film in the Krrish ‘triology’, as producer-director Rakesh Roshan calls it, will happen over three months in Hyderabad, starting January next year. Hrithik Roshan plays the lead, as expected, with Priyanka Chopra as his co-star, while Jacqueline Fernandez has replaced Chitrangda Singh as the baddie alien. Vivek Oberoi is the arch-villain, and is already training vigorously in martial arts for his role. The film, like Don 2, will be shot in 2D, but converted to 3D with a little help from a handy-dandy computer programme. Did you need to know more? Oh yes, a useful fact: You can watch it Diwali 2013!
