Akshay Kumar’s Jolly LLB 2 legal trouble: Will makers delete 4 scenes and release Jolly LLB 2 smoothly on Feb 10?
Akshay Kumar is coming out with Jolly LLB 2 and it is naturally one of the most awaited movies of this year. While the movie has got a Central Board of Film Certification, it still got into a controversy. As you know it, the movie revolves around Jolly who is a lawyer and his quirky sense of solving cases in the court. It is a sequel to the Arshad Warsi starrer film by the name of Jolly LLB which was critically acclaimed for its content and performance by the lead actor.
Jolly LLB 2 stars Akshay Kumar and Huma Quereshi and the movie got into a row after an advocate from Nanded filed a petition with the High Court arguing that the movie is disrespectful towards lawyers and that they should drop ‘LLB’ from the title. The lawyer by the name of Ajaykumar Waghmare wrote in the petition that the movie shows the judicial system in poor light and all lawyers are thus offended by the same. The Aurangabad bench of High Court set up a committee to watch the film and the matter was moved to Supreme Court. A three member bench of HC refused to put hold on Jolly LLB 2 screening. Today Bombay HC announced that the makers will have to delete four scenes from the film which show movie in poor light. The makers have approached the Supreme Court. Will the film release smoothly on February 10? Only time will tell that. ALSO READ: The Kapil Sharma.
