Arshad said, “We had to go through the same last time too, after a few lawyers filed a petition against us, demanding the release be stalled. However, we had a more generous judge last time. He pulled up the petitioners, saying, ‘Do you want me to show the kind of spelling mistakes you make?’ The bigger the star or the movie, the more mileage one gets. People make all kinds of noise but the sad part is that the law machinery doesn’t care.”
When he was quizzed about a cold war with Akshay Kumar and director Subhash Kapoor, he said, “With Kabir [Khan], Subhash or even Raju (Rajkumar Hirani), there can never be bad blood. I know if I am required to do something, they will call me. I am not going to force myself on friends and mess up their films. I was never upset about not getting ‘Jolly LL.B 2’. Akshay and Subhash are friends, nothing can change my equation with them.”
‘Jolly LL.B 2’ is helmed by Subhash Kapoor and produced by Fox Star Studios. The movie stars Akshay Kumar, Huma Qureshi, Annu Kapoor in important roles. The movie is slated to release on February 10, 2017.
