As per earlier reports, Jolly LLB 3 will be shot in different states. However, Delhi has a major chunk of sequences.

Recently, reports were abuzz that the shooting might get cancelled or postponed due to the scorching heat in the coming months. However, the source busted the rumours.

"Everything will go as planned and there is no postponement due to the weather conditions. In fact, there are specific daytime scenes also, and whatever is meant to be shot in the sun, it would be done like that only," the source added.

The excitement among moviegoers escalated after the announcement of Arshad's addition in the third instalment. While Arshad played the lead in the first instalment, Jolly LLB (2013), its sequel Jolly LLB 2, starring Akshay in the lead, released in 2017. Both films were loved for their excellent blend of humour with social commentary, offering insights into the Indian legal system. The witty dialogues and engaging storylines entertained the audience. Now that both Jollys (Arshad and Akshay) have teamed up for another courtroom drama, moviegoers expect a double dose of entertainment with a focus on certain social issues.
