Akshay Kumar starrer ‘Jolly LLB 2’ has landed in trouble after a petition was filed in the Bombay High Court by an advocate Ajaykumar S. Waghmare demanding removal of the word ‘LLB’ from its title. The lawyer believes that the usage of the word LLB in this context makes mockery of lawyers’ and their work ethics. Waghmare is also unhappy with the showcasing of advocates’ image in the trailer of the movie.
According to OneIndia, not just the use of the word LLB in movies’ title, Waghmare also took offense of depiction of lawyers’ image in trailer where the actor Akshay Kumar is seen playing cards and dancing in the court premises wearing lawyers’ uniform. This according to Waghmare tarnishes the image of an advocate. In his petition, he has strongly called it a deliberate attempt to malign the reputation of the Indian legal profession.
