Jolly LLB 2 controversy: Respect Bombay HC's order, says Akshay Kumar
Kumar expressed his discontent over people filing complaints days before the released of the film
The Bombay High Cour had ordered that Akshay Kumar starring Jolly LLB 2 can only be screened after removing 4 contriversial shots from the film and the star says he respects the court's decision.
Advocate Ajay Kumar Waghmare from Aurangabad filed a petition before the bench and asked for the removal of "LLB" from the title and scrapping some shots which put the lawyers in "bad light". The lawyer said in his petition that content of trailer of the film available on social media tries "mock" the existing judicial system of India.
“I respect High Court’s decision. They must have made the decision keeping everything in mind. It’s the High Court, you have to abide by their rules and I always believe in abiding by the rules and we have made the changes. There is no argument about it. There will be four cuts in one scene and that whole thing has been done. The movie is releasing on February 10,” Akshay told PTI.
He also expressed his discontent over people filing complaints days before the released of the film.
“These days anyone keeps filing cases on every second film, but still the court never stalls the release of any film. Because the court also understands that sometimes people file these cases deliberately. I think it was a good decision. They wanted some three- four cuts. And we did it which is fine,” Kumar added.
After conducting a special preview of the film, Justices S S Shinde and K K Sonawane of a Bombay High Court bench gave the order yesterday, based on a report submitted by Justice Prakash Kanade and two others.
The Subhash Kapoor directed film is a sequel to the 2012 comedy flick. Akshay plays a lawyer in the film.
Actors Huma Qureshi and Annu Kapoor also stars in the flick.
