There was a film once. Like all – well, maybe not all, but most – great pieces of art, it wasn’t appreciated in its own time. It was called Mera Naam Joker and it was dedicated to that one principle that all practitioners of performing arts hold as gospel – THE SHOW MUST GO ON
‘The Jokers’ Project’ is the name of my own music channel, and it was started in the spirit of that joker who lived for his art. I like to collaborate with musicians of different tastes and genres to make music. We, at the Jokers’ Project, believe in art. We live for our art.
