Here's how Akshay Kumar teased fans with a sneak peek:
Jolly LLB 2 is a sequel to Arshad Warsi's 2013 popular drama Jolly LLB. Arshad featured as a lawyer in the film, which was inspired from the 1999 hit-and-run case of Sanjeev Nanda. The first part of the courtroom drama also starred Boman Irani in a significant role. Arshad's film was directed by Subhash Kapoor, who will also helm Akshay's new project.
Akshay's Jolly LLB 2 has been shot across Himachal Pradesh, Lucknow and Varanasi. Akshay kept us updated throughout the schedule.
Arshad Warsi, who is not part of Jolly LLB 2, told news agency IANS: "I am not doing it. Akshay is doing it. I was supposed to do it, but Fox Star Studios needed a bigger star, so they chose Akshay."
"It makes it easier for marketing. It makes it easier to have a hit. With me, you (the filmmakers) have to make a good film, so that is the problem. You can make money with me only if it's a very good film," Arshad added in his interview to IANS.
"If you have a bigger star, then even if the film is not that good, you still manage to cover the money. So the risk factor from the producer's point of view is less," Arshad also told IANS.
Akshay Kumar, 49, co-stars with actress Huma Qureshi in Jolly LLB 2. Both Boman and Arshad are expected to have cameos in the film.
