“Barfi!”, starring Priyanka Chopra and Ranbir Kapoor will hit screens Aug 31. It narrates a romantic tale of a deaf and mute boy, essayed by the Kapoor scion, while Priyanka plays an autistic girl.
Shirish Kunder’s “Joker” brings an extra-terrestrial character to the big screen with Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha in the drama-comedy releasing Sep 14. It will take viewers on a joyride with Agastya (Akshay), a researcher probing the existence of aliens, who returns to his small little native village, which doesn’t exist on the global map.
