Not only on the screens but also at the box-office, their fans and the audience want to watch them together. Their chemistry, gloss, their action and high-octane shoot location everything is looking fantastic.

Joker is a very premium product. In cities like Mumbai, Delhi, Pune and Bangalore, where there are hardcore Hollywood movie buffs.
