Akshay Kumar-starrer ‘Jolly LL.B 2’ gets into a legal trouble
The trailer of actor Akshay Kumar’s next film ‘Jolly LL.B 2’ was released a few days ago. It received an overwhelming response from the fraternity and fans. But certainly, this happiness is now under some fair share of controversy, and the reason behind this is a shoe.
According to a report in a leading daily, a popular shoe company has sent a legal notice to the makers of the movie for defamation and commercial disparagement. If you have seen the trailer there’s a confrontation scene between veteran actor Annu Kapoor and Akshay Kumar where a brand of a shoe is somewhat insulted, as it is mentioned to be a cheap product. The company, who has sent the legal notice, are claiming that this is a deliberate move perhaps created by a rival brand to ruin their reputation.
Further the report suggests that the concerned party wants the trailer to be taken off from the internet and theatres. Or they should carry a disclaimer that the show brand has been mentioned in the scene by mistake, in both, the trailer as well as the film.
The legal notice has been sent to the production house Fox Star Studios India, director Subhash Kapoor, and actors Akshay Kumar and Annu Kapoor.
Even director Subhash Kapoor has issued a statement related to this to a leading daily saying, “The producers will talk about it, I’m not authorised to.”
‘Jolly LL.B 2’, also stars Huma Qureshi and Inaamulhaq in pivotal roles.
It is slated to release on February 10, 2017.
