Sidharth Malhotra and Parineeti Chopra kicked off their upcoming film, 'Jabariya Jodi', in Lucknow earlier last month. Ekta Kapoor's upcoming film 'Jabariya Jodi' has piqued the fans' interests owing to the quirky title. Interestingly, actor Sidharth Malhotra who stars in the film suggested the name.
While one would assume Jabariya to mean something fantastic, the actual meaning of the title is "forced couple".
As Jabariya Jodi presents an interesting take on Bihar’s pakadwa vivaah (kidnapping the groom to get him forcibly married), Sidharth Malhotra suggested the interesting name to the film. The rom-com, set in Bihar, has a rustic flavour and revolves around the problem of groom kidnapping, albeit with humour. In one of the posters, Parineeti and Sidharth, the lead stars of the film, impressed the audience with their smug look of successfully kidnapping a groom.
The first look posters of the film was released recently.
Jabariya Jodi went on floors recently and is being shot in and around Lucknow.
The buzz has it that Javed Jaffery is all set to make a comeback with Jabariya Jodi and will reportedly play the role of Sidharth's father in the film.Starring Aparshakti Khurrana as Parineeti Chopra's friend, Sanjay Mishra as her father, Neeraj Sood as her father's friend, Gopal Dutt as an inspector, Javed Jaffrey as Sidharth Malhotra's father and Chandan Roy Sanyal as his friend, 'Jabariya Jodi promises intriguing performances along with the leading duo, Parineeti and Siddharth.
Produced by Ekta Kapoor under the banner of Balaji Motion Pictures and Shailesh Singh's Karma Media Net, Jabariya Jodi directed by Prashant Singh is slated to release in 2019.
