'Jolly LLB' can open doors for good cinema: Arshad
Mumbai: Arshad Warsi says when films like 'Kai Po Che' and his upcoming film 'Jolly LLB' work, they open doors for filmmakers who believe in creating such cinema, but are reluctant.
"When people accept such films, it opens doors for good cinema. There are a lot of good filmmakers who cannot make their films because they are into this kind of cinema," the 44-year-old said here Friday on the sets of TV show 'Safar Filmy Comedy Ka', where he was present to promote 'Jolly LLB'.
"When films like 'Kai Po Che', 'Barfi!' work and if 'Jolly LLB' also works, a lot of those writers, who write such movies will be encouraged to come forward. This is good cinema and it should be made," he added.
'Jolly LLB' is a satire on the Indian judicial system and Arshad plays a lawyer in the film.
Meanwhile, Arshad said 'Jolly LLB' director Subhash Kapoor had initially approached him for the film, even before he took the script to superstar Shah Rukh Khan, and then returned to him.
"Subhash had thought about this long time back and he wanted to cast me in it even then. But I couldn't meet him because of some problem due to my secretary and then he went to Shah Rukh. But there was some date issue and he came back to me, I heard the story, loved it and said yes," Arshad said.
'Jolly LLB', releasing March 15, also features Boman Irani and Amrita Rao.
