One of Arshad Warsi’s biggest successes, besides the role of Circuit in the Munna Bhai films, has been the wick-witted lawyer he played in Subhash Kapoor’s Jolly LLB (2013). Unfortunately, Arshad’s subsequent reteaming with director Subhash Kapoor in Guddu Rangeela did not prove as successful, and the director has now replaced Arshad with a bigger star, Akshay Kumar, in the Jolly sequel. Arshad claims to be unperturbed by this casting changeover.

Subhash is a very dear friend of mine so when we were thinking of this film, discussions were on. Fox (the production company) wanted Akshay to do the film and I always thought that Akshay was the best choice. He can play a macho, powerful, strong guy and he can also play a very naive, innocent desperate person. He has got that range so it’s perfectly fine.”

The actor is generous enough to prepare the sequel’s first look. He says, “I liked the poster, it is very interesting. I know the story and I have full confidence in Akshay. I think it’s going to be a beautiful film.”
