Jolly LL.B 2 producer withdraws appeal from SC, accepts cuts
The producer of Akshay Kumar-starrer 'Jolly LL.B 2' today withdrew its appeal from the Supreme Court against the Bombay High Court order and said the cuts suggested by the court-appointed panel are acceptable to it.

A bench headed by Justice Ranjan Gogoi allowed Fox Star Studio India, producer of the movie, to take back its appeal.

Senior advocate A M Singhvi, appearing for the producer said the deletions of certain scenes, suggested by the HC-appointed committee, are acceptable to it.

The film is slated for an all India release on February 10.

The High Court had appointed a 3-member committee to review the film following the allegations that it has made fun of the legal and judicial system.

The committee watched the movie and suggested deletions of four scenes which allegedly projected the judiciary and the lawyer community in poor light.

The producer today told the apex court that it has agreed to delete the scenes and would not like to pursue its appeal.
