Jolly LLB 2: Akshay Kumar Says He Is Grateful To Arshad Warsi
Actor Akshay Kumar who plays a lawyer in his upcoming film Jolly LLB 2 told news agency PTI that he is grateful to Arshad Warsi for ‘showing him the way’ to do the film. The 49-year-old actor, who last featured as a naval officer in Rustom, will be seen next in Subhash Kapoor’s Jolly LLB 2. Akshay plays a small-time lawyer Jagdishwar Mishra (aka Jolly), who wants to make a name in the field of criminal law. Jolly LLB 2‘s story revolves around a case in which Akshay and Annu Kapoor have a face-off in court. Akshay fights for good while Annu Kapoor, a corrupt but powerful lawyer tries hard to suppress the case.
“I am very grateful to Arshad to show me the way of doing a film like this. He made the way for me; he made things easy for me. He made this film very big and I hope that Jolly LLB 2 also turns out to be a good film,” said Akshay.
Akshay said he spoke to Arshad after coming on board for the film. “I did speak to Arshad. He is not small (actor). He is my good friend. People just blow up things out of proportion,” the actor told PTI.
Earlier in another interview Akshay had said, “I don’t prepare myself for any role. I think my directors prepare more than me. I believe that I would not be able to compete with my director’s preparation because he is doing one film a year while I am doing more. Therefore, my common sense says that I only follow his preparation of the role for me. I don’t act smart in front of my director.”
“Everything was prepared. I just followed what my director said and made sure I excel. That’s the only preparation I did.” the actor added.
Jolly LLB 2 also stars Huma Qureshi, who plays Akshay‘s love interest Pusha Pandey. The film is a sequel to Arshad Warsi and Amrita Rao’s film Jolly LLB. Saurabh Shukla reprises his role as Justice Surendra Lal Tripathi. The film releases on February 10.
Apart from Jolly LLB 2, Akshay Kumar will be seen in Toilet – Ek Prem Katha, Shankar’s 2.0, co-starring Rajinikanth. He will also star in Pad Man, Twinkle Khanna‘s first production under her new banner, Mrs Funnybones Movies.
