Sidharth Malhotra and Parineeti Chopra are all set to reunite onscreen with Ekta Kapoor's Jabariya Jodi. The movie has gone on floors in Lucknow today.
That Sidharth Malhotra and Parineeti Chopra have been confirmed to do Ekta Kapoor's next movie is well known. The movie was earlier reported to have been titled Shotgun Shaadi tentatively. However, the movie has now been titled Jabariya Jodi which means a forced couple. Sidharth and Pari have earlier shared screen space in Hasee Toh Phasee which saw the duo sharing a crackling chemistry onscreen. Sidharth will be seen playing a Bihari tug in the movie.
According to the DNA source, "The movie is based on
pakadwa vivaah, the makers felt that this was an apt name. In Bhojpuri, jabariya means zabardasti, so the title refers to a couple who is forced to get married. The two actors have also shot for the posters before leaving for Lucknow, so they should be out soon." The movie is a love story based on the groom kidnapping concept and has gone on floors today in Lucknow. The production house shared the clapper shot from the mahurat shot today.
The title was apparently suggested by none other than Sid. The same source said, “He came across this word during the readings and told the team about it. They liked it instantly.”
About Balaji Telefilms backing the movie, Sidharth told the publication, "Balaji will always be special because, till date, my biggest film (Ek Villain, 2014) is with Ekta. That’s why the thought of calling her up about this script earlier this year was obvious. She’s good at presenting and marketing a film. We have had great energies which have worked for us in Ek Villain and we are going to amplify it further with this movie."
Sidharth also said that it is an exciting movie for him and Pari to come back together as an onscreen couple.
