Choreographer-turned-director Farah Khan clarifies that makers of "Joker" planned to show the fantasy adventure on the space station as part of a promotional strategy and that it was never meant just for Indo-American astronaut Sunita Williams.

"UTV had earlier planned it all, but I never took Sunita Williams' name, I don't know how her name cropped up," the 47-year-old said here Monday.

"This was a promotional strategy because Akshay (Kumar) is a NASA scientist in the film, it's about aliens and space ships. They (UTV) thought we could get it relayed on that station, but there is so much red tape involved in that and it takes a long period of asking for it and all. But I never took Sunita Williams' name," said Farah, who has co-produced the film.

Meanwhile, Akshay's look in "Joker" resembles that of Aamir Khan's in "Lagaan". Asked about the similarities, Farah said: "If he is looking like Aamir in 'Lagaan', then I am happy because it was a very big movie."

"But a villager's outfit and look is the same, dhoti and bandi. By this logic, Aamir's look also resembled that of Dilip Kumar's in 'Naya Daur'. It's a village look and there are only that many village looks that you can do," she added.

Directed by Shirish Kunder, "Joker" also stars Sonakshi Sinha and Shreyas Talpade. It is set to hits theatres Aug 31.
