JOKER: 100th film of Akshay Kumar

By Enkayaar, Glamsham Editorial

The trailers of JOKER that have been released in the cinema halls recently have started creating a buzz about Akshay Kumar's new film on offer, which is going to hit the screens in the month of August. For Akshay Kumar it would be a matter of pride that with JOKER his century of films in Hindi cinema would be completed.

Indeed, JOKER is going to be the 100th film for Akshay Kumar in his long acting career. For Akshay Kumar, it indeed is a lucky year as two of his films HOUSEFULL 2 and ROWDY RATHORE have crossed 100 crore mark. Kumar would be hoping that JOKER should overhaul the collections of both these films as he has as his co-star Sonakshi Sinha in JOKER as well.

For Akshay Kumar it certainly is a monumental achievement as he has reached this position without any godfather in the industry or having a genealogy that could help him to make his debut. His sojourn has been an exercise that is full of trials and tribulations, or rather baptism by fire so to say, but he has made his mark and reached a position where now he on his own commands initial opening at the box office.

But Akshay Kumar should thank one man for the position that he has reached today. As it has been informed by Christina Daniels in the Biography of Aamir Khan, I Will Do It My Way, Akshay Kumar had appeared for screen test for the role in JO JEETA WOHI SIKANDAR which ultimately went to Deepak Tijori. Had Akshay Kumar been cast in this role in JO JEETA WOHI SIKANDAR, who knows where he would have been today.

But that is what fate is all about and that is why perhaps he is known as the Khiladi Kumar, or a player who is not bothered to take the risks to make his mark. JOKER seems to be a good sci-fi film and the manner in which the genre is being appreciated by the audience and the kind of special effects that have employed in the film JOKER should turn out to be perhaps another 100 crore venture as well.

For all the stakeholders, be it Farah Khan, Akshay Kumar, Shirish Kunder, indeed JOKER should make a mark. It can be catalyzed, if JOKER is publicized as Akshay Kumar's 100th film. May be the publicity department associated with JOKER should take a note.
