In “Jolly LLB”, Arshad played a lawyer named Jagdish Tyagi, also known as Jolly. Arshad had earlier said he was supposed to feature in the second instalment too but the makers wanted a “bigger star”, which they found in Akshay.
“Finally saw the trailer of ‘Jolly LLB2’. Love the new Jolly. Looking forward to it, all the best to Huma Qureshi and Akshay Kumar,” Arshad tweeted on Tuesday.
Akshay thanked Arshad. “Thank you for the love and luck Arshad, glad you liked it,” Akshay tweeted.
“Jolly LLB 2” is directed by Subhash Kapoor. It also features Huma Qureshi and Annu Kapoor.
Actor Saurabh Shukla, who won the National Film Award for Best Supporting Actor in “Jolly LLB”, has returned in the sequel.
Released in 2013, “Jolly LLB”, which won the National Film Award for Best Feature Film in Hindi, revolved around the life of lawyer Jagdish Tyagi aka Jolly and focuses on his attempt to earn six innocent wage earners their rights and his journey against the monopolistic behaviour of the rich and judicial corruption.
The trailer of the upcoming “Jolly LLB 2” released on Monday.
