His no-show has thrown up a lot of questions, but Farah clears the air.

“It’s a strategy, please don’t go by what you are reading in the papers, it’s somebody trying to do mischief. It’s a strategy we have adopted,” the 47-year-old said in an interview.

Farah adds that the recent release of Akshay-Sonakshi Sinha-starrer Rowdy Rathore is the primary reason behind Akshay’s no-show.

“We have just seen a lot of them doing Rowdy Rathore promotions, we didn’t want our film to look the same. It’s a very different film, it’s a kids-friendly film. Our USP is the aliens and we want to play upon that,” Farah said.

Meanwhile, Farah is happy to have produced a film like Joker and said: “It’s for kids. After a very long time you’ll see a film parents can take their kids to and without worrying about scenes of kissing or violence. It’s a very clean and entertaining film,” Farah said.

Joker also stars Sonakshi Sinha, Shreyas Talpade and Minissha Lamba and hits theatres on August 31.
