Sayani Gupta whose role has been kept under wraps owing to the thrill element of the film will be playing a crucial role in the film Jolly LLB Sayani who made her acting debut in Margarita With A Straw with a powerful performance, followed by her significant performance in FAN alongside ShahRukh Khan.

The Jolly Llb sequel is said to be a satirical dark comedy drama directed by Subhash Kapoor. Major parts of the film were shot in Lucknow on a month’s schedule. As we have already seen Jolly LLB depicting the plight of the Indian legal system, gaining the media and audience support, the sequel will highlight the circumstance further. Sayani as we can see plays a pregnant woman who’s married to actor Manav Kaul in the film.

Talking about her role, Sayani says, “I am honestly thrilled to be part of this fun franchise. I loved the script of the film and fell in love with my character Hina. It’s a part that I am proud to have etched and portrayed. It was such a joy collaborating with Subhash Kapoor as a director, who is a great writer and director.

He is really like a father figure and conducts himself with so much compassion and warmth on set. It is rare to find such directors. Also working with old friend Manav Kaul was special. And Akshay Kumar was the sweetest. He is such a responsive and helpful co-actor and a complete team player. I am really glad that I did this film and tell this story. Becasue it will stay in people’s minds for a long time, I think.” –Cineblitz
