Jolly LLB 2 controversy: Supreme Court asks makers to approach Bombay High Court

The Supreme Court on Friday asked the Fox Studios, makers of Jolly LLB 2, starring Akshay Kumar and Huma Qureshi to approach the Bombay High Court against it's order of appointing 3 member panel for examining the flick about the portrayal of the judicial system.

The panel is asked to submit a report to the High Court on Monday whether there is anything offensive about the judiciary and the legal profession after watching the film.


Aurangabad-based lawyer Ajay Kumar Waghmare filed a petition in the Bombay High Court. He demanded in his petition to Court to ask the makers to drop LLB from the name because judiciary and the legal profession was portrayed in a bad film.

Senior lawyer Kapil Sibal, who was representing Fox Studios, told the apex court that there is nothing against lawyers in the film, and the trailer shows it.

The Supreme Court said that it will allow Bombay High Court to rule on the issue and will hear the matter if there is a need. The hearing will take place on February 7.
