After Ram Gopal Varma screened his movie The Attacks of 26/11 for prominent politicians like LK Advani, director Subhash Kapoor now plans to screen his Jolly LLB for powers to be.
"Even though the film is a satire on the judicial system of the country, Kapoor is confident that those running the country won't hesitate in watching Jolly LLB beforehand. In any case, citizens are aware about the way things move in the courts of India. If he is projecting reality, it has to be seen on the face value. Moreover he is not making a hard hitting statement or anything. He is maintained a light hearted narrative for the film as Arshad Warsi and Boman Irani would be seen getting into some humour filled confrontations", informs our well placed source from the film.
While we are told that the list has already been drawn for the invitees, it has also been revealed that people from all segments, be it politics, leaders, bureaucrats and officials connected to law and administration would be stepping in for multiple screens that are being planned across Mumbai and Delhi.
When contacted, Arshad confirmed the developments. He also went on to quip, "I hope after watching the film, they realise how the judicial system truly works on the ground level. That should open up their eyes further."
