Even though director Subhash Kapoor has worked with Arshad Warsi twice in the past, one hears that the director’s next would have Akshay Kumar replacing Warsi! Oh yes, one hears that the sequel to the highly acclaimed courtroom drama ‘Jolly LLB’ will star Akshay Kumar.
The reason for this is said to be the production house and Kapoor’s plan to turn the movie into a franchise with series of movies, and hence require a much more bankable star to turn it into a profitable venture!
Also, one hears that Paresh Rawal would be stepping into the shoes of Boman Irani who played the antagonist in the previous one! So what happens to Arshad’s character? Will Akshay play lawyer Jagdish Tyagi or a new character? Let’s wait for an official announcement which, the makers say, they would be making soon after getting Akshay on-board.
