The film will be produced by Shahrukh's Red Chillies Entertainment in association with Rakesh Upadhyay. This film based on a lawyer's life will expose the judiciary and Subhash Kapoor will direct it. He had earlier directed film Say Salaam India.
Subhash Kapoor revealed that Jolly LLB would take on the pros and cons of the judicial system. He added that the discussion on the film with Shahrukh went beyond two hours though the actor gave them just 45 minutes. Shahrukh felt in love with the script of the film.
Rakesh Upadhyay said that talks are on to work with Shahrukh's production house for a long time. He added that it's too early to say anything and that they would make formal announcement if anything good happens.
If all goes on well, Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan will don a role that he has not done so far. He is going to play a lawyer in his forthcoming film Jolly LLB, and it is expected to go to the floors next year.
