Sidharth Malhotra and Parineeti Chopra-starrer Jabariya Jodi will now hit the theatres on August 9. The film was earlier slated to hit screens on August 2. According to a press release issued by the makers, the decision was taken after considering the fact that there are too many releases on August 2 and many previously released films are having a good run at the box office.
Directed by Prashant Singh, the film also stars Aparshakti Khurana, Sanjay Mishra, Neeraj Sood, Gopal Dutt, Javed Jaffrey and Chandan Roy Sanyal.The film has been shot in several locations in north India including Lucknow, Barabanki and Raebareli.
On the basic premise of the film, Sidharth had recently said: "It is a romantic comedy film based in Patna (Bihar). It revolves around the concept of Pakadwa Vivah. We have been shooting for this film since last year. We created a lot of things of Patna in Lucknow (Uttar Pradesh)."
When Parineeti was asked if she faced any difficulty in learning the dialect for the film, she had said during a media interaction: "I think the good thing was that our director knows that world really well and in his Hindi also, there is a little bit flavour of Patna. So, it was really easy for me and Sidharth (Malhotra) because we used to follow Prashant blindly."
Jabariya Jodi is produced by Shobha Kapoor, Ekta Kapoor's Balaji Telefilms and Shaailesh R Singh's Karma Media and Entertainment.
