It’s more of a human drama and a very visual film.” While Akshay gave some hints, “Joker is not a super-hero film. It is not about me wearing some clown’s clothes or being part of a circus. Why it is called Joker is something you’ll have to wait to know. However, I can tell you, it is going to be one of the most technically advanced movies made in India. Children and adults are going to love it. The story moves from a village to NASA and well after that there’s some suspense involved.”
