Akshay promises never to work with Farah, Shirish
There has been a huge talk about Akshay Kumar skipping ‘Joker’ promotion. He is not seen in the promotion of his new release ‘Joker’. Everyone is talking why Akki has maintained a distance from Shirish Kunder and Farah Khan’s ‘Joker’. After some investigation, it is found that Akshay Kumar and Shirish Kunder are not in the talking terms and both have maintained distance soon after the film shooting finished.
It is heard that during the film shoot, the actor had a creative difference with Shirish which made Akshay to distance from the film promotion. The action star is not happy with the film creativity and it result to face-off.
A source informs, “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.”
The source adds, "After Jaan-E-Maan flopped, he still worked with a script that was written by Shirish and in-spite of the disastrous result of the film, he went ahead and did this film. Akshay was promised that the film will be made in 3D. However, when the film went on the floors, he was told that the film will be converted to 3D and was shot accordingly. However that never happened."
Farah Khan went up to Shahrukh for the film promotion and SRK accepted to help Farah and Shirish. When Farah was asked about the clash between Akki and them, she said that soon after ‘Joker’, shooting, Akshay got busy with his next film and that he told earlier that he won’t be available for the film promotion.
Akshay was also
dissatisfied with the music of the film. The source states, "When Akshay
heard the song I Want Fakt You, he immediately objected saying that his
fans are family audiences and he would not want the song included in the film.
Though the track was changed to Just You, the makers still went ahead
and promoted it as Fakt You. The final nail on the coffin was when Farah
went and promoted the film with Shah Rukh Khan. Akshay felt hurt and distanced
himself from doing any promotions of the film."
The source finally said, "While the film's makers have been claiming that Akshay will start promoting the film post August 27, the actor apparently will be leaving town on the same morning to shoot for Milan Luthria's gangster sequel. In fact, he is not going to be around for the release also."
Akshay Kumar totally abandoned the film promotion and only
female lead Sonakshi Sinha and Chitrangada Singh who starred in an item number
present in most of the events.
