Bollywood superstar, Akshay Kumar and Huma Qureshi promoted their upcoming film Jolly LLB 2 at the Bollywood Parks Dubai, part of Dubai Parks and Resorts, the Middle East’s largest multi-themed leisure and entertainment destination.
Set in Lucknow, the drama follows a small time lawyer Jolly (Kumar), who fights petty cases to make a quick buck, till he chances upon a case that pits him against a ruthless advocate Mathur (played by Annu Kapoor).
For his role, Kumar says he took inspiration from Birbal, an advisor in the court of Mughal Emperor Akbar in the 15th century. The red vermillion dot on Kumar donned in his head for the film was inspired by Birbal.
I was lucky enough to attend this Press Releas which had very delected persons from the Media, all thanks to ASDAA PR.
Akshay Kumar, who shot Baby and Airlift in the UAE, hailed Dubai as an ideal place to work and play. “Some of my best films like Hera Pheri were shot here. Dubai is like home and it is great to come back here,” he said at the Press Release which took place at the Raj Mahal Theatre. “It is only two hours away from Mumbai, and anytime we are getting bored, we just hop on a plane and come here.”
Akshay Kumar spoke briefly about his upcoming films this year, the next being Toilet Love Story, and Robot 2 with Southern superstar Rajinikanth.
Following the press conference, Kumar and Qureshi interacted with the audience on a podium outside the park’s Raj Mahal Theatre: participating in selfies, dancing to songs from Jolly LLB2, quizzing their fans and handing out hampers.
“I would love to answer each and every one of your interesting questions. Why weren’t you all inside instead of waiting outside for me?” asked Kumar, who was in Dubai to promote his satirical comedy Jolly LLB 2.
Jolly LLB 2, directed by Subhash Kapoor, will hit the silver screen in the UAE this Thursday i.e 9th Feb.
