Actors shouldn’t feel bad on not being part of sequel: Akshay Kumar


Actor Akshay Kumar, who has replaced Arshad Warsi in “Jolly LLB 2”, says one shouldn’t feel bad about not being part of a sequel as it is purely a producer’s call.

The 2013 courtroom drama, directed by Subhash Kapoor, was a sleeper hit in which Arshad played Jolly, a struggling lawyer, who comes upon a hit-and-run case and decides to fight for the victims. However, the defendant hires a proficient lawyer, played by Boman Irani against him.

With the sequel in the pipeline, the makers have roped in Akshay Kumar for the lead role.

Recently Arshad had said that he wanted to be a part of “Jolly LLB 2”. But he couldn’t, as the producers wanted a bigger star like Akshay Kumar for the second instalment.

“I don’t have anything to say (on Arshad’s comment).

Talk to producer. It is the call (decision) of producer. Like I did ‘Welcome’ and not ‘Welcome Back’ but I did not feel bad.
