Know more about the complaint

Chandrabhan reportedly filed the complaint against the producer, director and actors for making fun of lawyers and judges. In the complaint, Chandrabhan apparently claimed that the film presents lawyers and judges in an “inappropriate” way which, he termed, is “humorous and indecent”.

“This decision has been taken considering the first and second parts of Jolly LLB. It seems that the filmmakers, directors and actors do not respect the dignity and prestige of the judiciary of the country’s Constitution at all. The shooting of Jolly LLB 3 is going on in the surrounding villages and areas including the DRM office of Ajmer, which will continue for several days. Even during the shooting of this film, the actors of the film do not seem to be at all serious about the image, prestige and dignity of the judiciary including the judges,” the report quoted Chandrabhan as saying.

He further added that the scenes of kicking a lawyer, chasing him with a stick, the judge eating ‘gutkha’, and money transactions don’t depict the reality of the legal system, and are not in accordance with the dignity of the judiciary system.
