After delivering two back-to-back hits this year, Akshay Kumar's recent movie Joker somehow bombed at the Box Office. It was a big loss for the film's distributors, who had lost almost 60 percent of their money. But now, they are demanding for a compensation from the actor, who was a co-producer of the film.
A leading daily reports that the estimated losses amount to Rs 20 cr. Sunny Khanna, a distributor, blamed Akshay Kumar for the the failure of Joker. He told the daily, "Brand lost only because of Akshay's unprofessional behaviour and I definitely want compensation from him. He should learn from Emraan Hashmi, who is ready to promote an old film like Rush."
Shirish Kunder's Joker has so far fetched an amount of approximately Rs 25 crores, that is even less than Ek Tha Tiger's first day Box Office collections. Witnessing the recent scenario, it looks like Akki is literally under the threat of those distributors, who feel that the actor is responsible for their loss.
