The rumour mill was churning out for the last few days that a new sequel of the movie Jolly LLB is going to be shot shortly and now the ‘Khiladi of the Bollywood Industry’, Akshay Kumar has confirmed the news. Not only that, but Akshay has also posted his exclusive look for the Jolly LLB 2 movie where he will be seen as a lawyer and with a moustache.
The 48-year old actor posted an image of the first look of Jolly LLB 2 on both his Instagram and Twitter account and said, “New day with a new look for a new film, let the mayhem begin! #JollyLLB2 it is! Judgement day 10th February 2017. Till then send in your wishes and love”
Jolly LLB was a massive hit of the year 2013, and also got accolades from both the fans and critics. The movie featured Arshad Warsi in the lead role, and he played the character of a lawyer who just wants to become a successful lawyer like his idol played by Boman Irani? The movie came with all the elements a movie need to be hit, such as intensity, comedy, sorrow, grief and depicted the plight of a courtroom drama brilliantly. Saurabh Shukla, who portrayed the character of a judge, was outstanding with his acting, and his laughable one-liners were really hilarious.
It was rumoured that the movie Jolly LLB was based on the Sanjeev Nanda hit and run case and also the Priyadarshini Matto case. The movie took a humorous turn to a serious hit and run case and highlighted the inside drama of an Indian courtroom. All the actors in that movie, Arshad Warsi as an aspiring lawyer, Boman Irani as a super successful advocate, Saurabh Shukla as a cringe-worthy yet funny judge did their best, and their superb performance was loved by the audience too.
However, in this sequel Jolly LLB 2, we will not get to see any of the actors of its previous iteration apart from Saurabh Shukla. As we have mentioned above, Akshay Kumar will play the lead role, and he will take on Annu Kapoor as his rival lawyer, instead of Boman Irani.
The director of the previous edition, Subhash Kapoor will also direct this movie. The shooting of this courtroom comedy drama has just been started, and a 25-day schedule in Lucknow for the film’s shooting, followed by a Varanasi schedule has been chalked out. The last phase of the shooting will be done in Kashmir. .Jolly LLB 2 will be released on 10th February 2017 and will compete with Sushant Singh Rajput and Kriti Sanon’s starrer ‘Raabta’ at the box office.
