Award-winning movie, Jolly LLB remained a hit among audiences as well. They liked Arshad Warsi’s performance in the movie as a lawyer. Arshad essayed the role of Jagdish Tyagi, an aspiring lawyer in the movie. The film was deemed as superhit and it also did quite a satisfactory business at the box office. Now director, Subhash Kapoor is back with its second part. People are pretty excited about the movie. But above all, one thing that struck us was the replacement of Warsi. Akshay Kumar replaced Arshad in the movie was indeed a big news.
Until now we are kept in the dark as to why Arshad did not continue to work in the second part. Or it was solely a decision of the director. There are many speculations going on about Arshad’s dropping out of the film.
The earnest and likeable hero won everyone’s hearts but now he will not play Jolly’s character anymore.
When the makers announced its second part, everyone was expecting that Arshad will reprise the role. However, things did not turn out as expected.
Akshay Kumar replaced Arshad Warsi in the movie made it to the headlines. The audiences were stunned and some even feel that Arshad was more synonymous to the character.
No doubt, Akshay’s presence in the movie will attract many viewers to the cinemas. With the Khiladi Kumar’s name attached to the film, it has already gained a brand status.
Now the actor himself came out in public to reveal the reason behind this decision. He disclosed the fact that Fox Star Studios who is presenting the film wanted an A-lister for the same. Therefore, they went to Akshay instead of him.
Although Arshad confessed that he was a bit upset about this decision but later understood their point.
No only Arshad strived to understand their point of view, he was even seen at the special screening of the movie as well. His candid attitude towards his replacement is highly commendable. He does not have any hard feelings for anyone.
In fact he praised Akshay for his fantastic performance. Coming out of the movie halls, he said, “The movie is looking larger-than-life because of a star like Akshay.”
The movie will release tomorrow on 10th February 2017. We wish Jolly LLB 2 all the success!!
