Footwear brand Bata has send a legal notice to the makers of Jolly LLB 2 (starring Akshay Kumar), say one of the dialogues in the film belittles their brand.
It is so ironic that a movie like Jolly LLB 2, which is a courtroom drama, finds itself in legal trouble.
So what exactly was shown in the film that offended Bata?
In the recently released theatrical trailer of the film Jolly LLB 2, Annu Kapoor humiliates Akshay Kumar saying that the latter wears Bata shoes and a cheap shirt.
Akshay Kumar feels humiliated and slaps Kapoor in anger.

So if you’re wondering why did the dialogue writers made a reference to ‘Bata’ footwear in the first place, its because Bata is well known for producing a wide range of budget (inexpensive) footwear (shoes, chappals, etc).
And that is why the dialogue was penned!
But I guess, nobody likes to be called ‘cheap’ even if they’re…referring to Kamaal Khan here and not to Bata 🙂
Did you know that Akshay Kumar endorses the footwear brand Relaxo which is a competitor of Bata?
