Jolly LLB 2 — the sequel to the surprise 2013 courtroom comedy hit of the same name — has a release date all the way in February 2017.
However, the sequel has been making news ever since the star cast — Akshay Kumar and Huma Qureshi — was announced. From the original film, Arshad Warsi also returns in the film, while Annu Kapoor and Saurabh Shukla round off the team.
While not too many details of the film have been released so far, the first look was released on Monday by Akshay Kumar.
Akshay showed off his character’s “look” in the film, while a caricature of him and Annu Kapoor, in lawyers’ garb and fighting it out in court, was also released.
“In character” Akshay looks subdued, and is dressed in the typical starched white shirt and black jacket combination that is an advocate’s uniform. A small tilak on his forehead and hair slicked back makes his Jolly LLB 2 look very different from his suave naval officer’s avatar in the upcoming Rustom.
In the meantime, Saurabh Shukla shared caricatures of the Jolly LLB 2 actors, including Akshay, Annu and Shukla himself. The cartoon depicts Shukla as a presiding judge looking over sternly at lawyers Akshay and Annu, who have struck the “finger-wagging” pose.
Jolly LLB 2‘s shoot is taking place across Lucknow, Varanasi and Kashmir. The film releases on 10 February 2017.
