Sidharth Malhotra and Parineeti Chopra are all set to create the magic again in Jabariya Jodi. The duo had shared screen space in Hasee Toh Phasee. Jabariya Jodi is based on the real-life practice of pakadwa shaadi, prevalent in certain places in India’s heartland.
And now Sidharth Malhotra and Parineeti Chopra will be meeting the real-life Jabariya Jodis from all over the country and will interact with them.
These couples will share their experiences of marrying through pakadwa shaadi.
Director Prashant Singh stated:
“The response to the trailer and songs has been great. Many such jodis have connected with us and are happy that we’re bringing this issue to light. Though the film has a comical treatment, we are also highlighting the decade-long practice of forced marriages. Since many instances of groom kidnapping have been incorporated in the film, we decided to organize an interactive session between this real jodis and our reel Jabariya Jodi to start a conversation around this subject.”
Besides, Sid and Pari, Jabariya Jodi will also star Aparshakti Khurana, Sanjay Mishra, Jaaved Jaaferi, Neeraj Sood, Gopal Dutt and Chandan Roy Sanyal. The movie’s producers are Ekta Kapoor, Shobha Kapoor, Shailesh R. Singh and Prashant Singh helms the film. The movie releases on August 2, 2019.
