Mumbai :Editor-turned-director Shirish Kunder says his much ambitious 3D project "Joker" is not a comedy film unlike what the title suggests.

"'Joker' has some humour but its not a comedy. Maybe because of the word 'Joker', it is presumed as a comedy. But even 'Mera Naam Joker' was not a comedy," the 38-year-old posted on micro-blogging site Twitter.

Starring Akshay Kumar and Sonakshi Sinha in lead roles, the film is set for a 2012 release.

Kunder, married to choreographer-turned-director Farah Khan, denied the film was inspired by 2010 Hollywood film "Alice in Wonderland". He says the only thing common between both the projects is the fantasy factor.

"Joker" is being jointly produced by Kunder and Farah's Three's Company and Akshay Kumar's Hari Om Entertainment Co.

In the past, Kunder has edited films like "Main Hoon Na" and "Om Shanti Om". His debut directorial movie "Jaan-E-Mann" released in 2006.
