Shirish was never sacked from Kick, he opted out: Farah Khan

According to some news reports, Shirish Kunder was being sacked from Sajid Nadiadwala’s remake of South film Kick,after his film Joker failed to do well at the box office. However, his wife Farah Khan slammed the reports and states that it was Shirish opted of the project.

According to a source,

It was unfortunate that Joker did not do well. Even his leading actors Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha did not stand by their director. No wonder these rumours started floating around.

Farah Khan further said,

They never sacked Shirish from the film. It was completely his decision to leave. They should not have projected it like that. In fact, two weeks before Joker’s release he had opted out of this film. He had even called Salman and told him about it apart from stating it on a social networking site. But somehow when they announced the development, they made it sound like they had sacked him.

According to her, the failure of Joker, has also taught the couple to handle disappointments in a better manner.

Success and failure come in every profession. What happened to Joker was not nice and could have been avoided. I have decided to move on. It is all about Friday. If our next film works, people are going to forget everything from the past.
