Jolly LLB 2 has been shot across India – extensively in Himachal Pradesh, Lucknow and Varanasi. Directed by Subhash Kapoor, Jolly LLB part one was based on the 1999 hit-and-run case of business school student Sanjeev Nanda. Arshad Warsi, who is not part of Jolly LLB 2, said news agency. “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. 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 added in his interview to news agency. Akshay was last seen in Tinu Desai’s Rustom. Akshay also has Toilet – Ek Prem Katha and Rajinikanth’s 2.0 lined-up for 2017. In 2.0 Akshay Kumar stars as eccentric scientist Dr Richards.
