In a recent interview with news agency PTI, Arshad said that he's happy for Akshay and that his team has done a "great job." "I am very happy for Akshay. I am sure he and the team have done a great job. He and I keep talking about it. In fact, I am even promoting the film in my own way. I am yet to watch it but I am really excited about its release," PTI quoted Arshad as saying.
Earlier this week, Akshay also addressed the Munna Bhai actor in an interview to PTI and said: "I am very grateful to Arshad to show me the way of doing a film like this. He made the way for me; he made things easy for me. He made this film very big and I hope that Jolly LLB 2 also turns out to be a good film."
Actor Saurabh Shukla will reprise his role of a judge in Jolly LLB 2, which is scheduled for February 10.
