Akshay Kumar‘s Jolly LLB 2 gets an U/A certificate. The film which takes references from the Indian judicial system, has been passed by the Censor board.
The movie had faced a legal notice from a consumer shoe brand for showing them in poor light. But the board it seems found no reason to object to the film when they saw it. In fact, the said reference has been apparently removed from the film. And guess that made the board pass the film with no cuts.
TOI had reported that the shoe brand in question had sent the makers of Jolly LLB 2 a notice. The daily had reported, “According to the brand, the dialogue is a deliberate attempt to tarnish the image of the brand, perhaps on the instigation of its competitors considering the film’s leading man, Akshay Kumar, is the face of the rival brand.” They demanded not only an apology letter from the makers but also a pull out of the scene from the trailer.
The notice was sent to Fox Star Studios India, along with executive producer Naren Kumar, company directors Deepak Jacob and Amit Shah, writer-director Subhash Kapoor and actors Akshay Kumar and Annu Kapoor. And guess that prompted the makers to remove the controversial scene from the film.
The trailer of the film got rave reviews from the fans who just loved it. IANS reported that during a press conference Akshay also mentioned how director Subhash Kapoor had all the case files and had a clear idea how a courtroom should look like.
As he added, “Everything was prepared. I just followed what he said and make sure I excel in that. That’s the only preparation I did.” The 49-year-old also expressed how people haven’t yet lost faith in the judiciary but are disappointed due to the delay in making the judgement.
“Actually the problem lies in the time taken. But lawyers and judges are giving their level best. Math says there are more than 3 crore cases which are pending because there are only 21,000 judges,” added Akshay.
