Jolly LLB team meets Law Minister
The team of upcoming film Jolly LLB met Minister of Law Ashwani Kumar in order to put forth the demands of young lawyers whom the makers have met while promoting the film.

Actors Arshad Warsi and Boman Irani, who play lawyers in the film, alongwith director Subhash Kapoor, met the union minister to submit a three-point memorandum regarding problems faced by junior lawyers. "I went to a Mumbai law college and saw the plight of our young lawyers and thought we should meet the law minister and tell him about the situation," Arshad told to PTI.

The memorandum highlighted three problems - loans or credit cards denied to young lawyers due to lack of fixed income; need to define a minimum remuneration for them to survive; better amenities for beginners at courts including access to libraries. "The atmosphere outside a courtroom should improve, the least that could be done for them is that for every lawyer there should be a small chamber," said Arshad.

Boman, who plays a famous, established lawyer, said, "We went to a law college where the students were vociferous about their problems and put forth their grievances in front of us." Accepting their charter of demands, the Law Minister said, "I would like to thank Arshad, Boman and the director of the film for delving into a very important issue through the medium of cinema. I am deeply indebted to the distinguished actors of our country who have actually done a great service to the problem that we have been trying to solve. I will try my best as the law minister to do whatever it takes so that younger lawyers are groomed into becoming important actors in the legal fraternity." "I really want to thank them for bringing these problems to our notice and we will try earnestly to look into them," Kumar added.
