Jolly LLB 2: Akshay’s ‘sensible and subtle’ response to Arshad’s ‘big star’ comment
The sequel of Jolly LLB has been in news for quite some time now. It all started when actor Akshay Kumar replaced Arshad Warsi for it. When Akshay shared his look from the movie, his fans got excited.
But, something which the lead actor of the first movie Arshad said recently suggested that he might not be happy with the decision.
Arshad reportedly said that he wanted to be a part of the sequel to the sleeper hit of 2013, but couldn’t because the producers wanted a big star.
“I am not doing it (Jolly LLB 2). 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 had reportedly said.

When asked to respond on Arshad’s ‘big star’ comment, Khiladi Kumar 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,"
Akshay said in an interview.
The Baby actor has already started shooting for Jolly LLB 2.
He said that he is enjoying playing a lawyer in the film as he has never portrayed it in films.
