New Delhi: Versatile actor Shreyas Talpade has been roped in as the second lead in Shirish Kunder's 3-D movie Joker .
"Shreyas Talpade has been cast as the second male lead in Joker. He plays Akshay Kumar's brother in the film," Kunder posted on his Facebook and Twitter page on Monday.
While Sonakshi Sinha has been zeroed in on as the female lead opposite Akshay in the film, the second female lead is yet to be decided. Kunder is taking public opinion for the same through his social networking accounts.
The film is being jointly produced by Kunder, Farah, and Akshay Kumar
"Who should be the heroine opposite Shreyas Talpade in Joker?" he posted soon after announcing Shreyas' presence in the film.
He has also been posting questions like "Who should be the lyricist for Joker?" and "Who should be the music director for Joker?"
The film editor-turned-director, husband of choreographer-director Farah Khan, had earlier shared a few details of his project through the social networking sites.
"Joker is not a superhero film. At one point it used to be. But what we are making now is a completely new script, with the same title. Joker has nothing to do with Batman's or Raj Kapoor's Joker. And Yup... Joker is a 3D film (sic)," Kunder had posted.
The film is being jointly produced by Kunder and Farah's Three's Company and Akshay Kumar's Hari Om Entertainment Company. They worked together on "Tees Maar Khan" recently.
