Good news for Akshay Kumar and his friend Shirish Kunder! Their awaited 'Joker' which also stars Sonakshi Sinha in the female lead has attracted the attention of The New York Times who has listed the movie in their 'Movies To Look Out For' column. 'Joker' has gained the prestige for being their only Indian movie to get mentioned in the most look out column.
The paper wrote, "Joker: Shirish Kunder directs a Bollywood comedy - in 3D - set in a forgotten republic founded by former mental patients on the India-Pakistan border. With Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha."
Obviously, Shirish is excited and shares, "We haven't even started the publicity yet. Despite that, we got a mention there, so it was a big surprise." The film has an international visual effects team working on it, which, Shirish says, "could be a reason for the attention".
