The Dabangg star is keen to act in Kunder’s 3D project, which is being filmed at the moment in Chandigarh.
"Shirish has already locked in on Akshay for the lead in Joker with Sonakshi Sinha," a source told Mid Day. "But when Salman heard Shirish was making a film in 3D, he got excited. He told Shirish to get him into the picture even if it is for just a cameo."
Kunder, who will work with Khan in his next film, Kick, expressed his admiration for the actor but would not confirm that Khan would play any part in Joker.
“Both Salman and I love 3D," the director said. "I would love to include Salman in Joker. But it has to be a role that would do justice to him.”
