After delivering a hit with crime thriller ‘Rustom’, Akshay will hit screens with ‘Jolly LLB 2’. This movie is the sequel to the 2013 movie ‘Jolly LLB’ which featured Arshad Warsi in the lead.
The replacement of Arshad with Akshay has earlier sparked a controversy. Arshad, had said that Akshay was roped in for the movie because he was the bigger star.
Arshad had said,
“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.”
When Khiladi Kumar was asked to respond to Arshad’s statement he had said,
“I don't have anything to say (on Arshad's comment). Talk to producer. It is the call of the producer. Like I did Welcome and not Welcome Back but I did not feel bad. It was my franchise so should I feel bad? Even Hera Pheri now somebody else is doing.”
Hinting that there is no bad blood between him and Akshay, Arshad has also hinted that he might do a cameo in the sequel.
As far as Akshay is concerned, he has told that he is excited about the part as he has never played a lawyer on screen before.
