Jolly LLB 2 gets clean chit from Censor board, to be screened before lawyers before release

Akshay Kumar's upcoming flick Jolly LLB 2 made headlines a few days ago when a group of lawyers protests saying the film portrayed their profession and judicial system in a bad light. They also asked the filmmakers to drop LLB from the name. In a new turn of events, the Aurangabad bench of the Bombay high court on Monday stepped into the matter and appointed two amicus curiae to watch the film and examine if the flick mocked the judicial system of the country.


The film was approved by the Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) without any cuts.
As per the ruling, lawyers R.N. Dhorde and V.J. Dixit will watch the film on Wednesday and submit their reviews by Friday, when the hearing on the petition is fixed.


The whole controversy started when Ajaykumar Waghmare, a lawyer from Nanded approached the court to leave the word LLB from the film's title. He also asked to scrap off some scenes like the one where the lawyers are shown playing cards in the court premises and the judge hiding in the dais.


The petitioner through his lawyers V.D. Salunke and Pandirao Anerao, said the trailer pointed out that the film is an attempt to malign the Indian legal profession and the judicial system.
