Akshay Kumar’s absence from the promotion of ‘Joker’ is reflecting in its collection. The film has collected around Rs 5 crore on the first day, which is lower than the collection of recent Akshay Kumar films. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweets, “#Joker Friday numbers are poor in India and international markets. Amongst akshaykumar ‘s lowest openers.”
Adarsh further tweets, “#Joker India *estimates* Fri 5 cr. Amongst the lowest openers of this year!”
Taran Adarsh has also given the break ups of the film’s business, “#Joker *UK* Fri £ 24,460 [11 screens yet to report]. Extremely poor!”
Most of the critics have felt that the film doesn’t satisfy the expectation level of the audiences. Some went on to term it as the torture of the senses.
While one can’t say what impact the poor performance of the film will have on Akshay’s career, one fallout has been that the actor is no longer friends with director Shirish Kunder.
Apparently, Akshay is angry that Shirish failed to live up to his promises of making ‘Joker’ a 3D film and didn’t even get Hollywood special effects experts to work on it as had been decided earlier.
Indeed, the joke seems to be on the audience this time.
