When the news of Jolly LLB 2 came, I got all the more excited till I got to know that Akshay Kumar will be in the lead this time and not Arshad Warsi.
I am not doing it (Jolly LLB 2). Akshay is doing it. I was supposed to do it, but Fox Star Studios needed a bigger star, so they chose Akshay. It makes it easier for marketing; it makes it easier to have a hit. With me, you (the filmmakers) have to make a good film, so that is the problem. You can make money with me only if it’s a very good film!
I don’t have anything to say (on Arshad’s comment). Talk to producer. It is the call of the producer. Like I did Welcome and not Welcome Back but I did not feel bad. It was my franchise so should I feel bad? Even Hera Pheri now somebody else is doing.
Akshay Kumar has a huge fan following and his fans are already waiting for his upcoming movie ‘Rustom’. As it is, the wait for ‘Rustom’ was getting impossible and now he has again given us another reason to stay restless.
