Sidharth Malhotra and Parineeti Chopra release the trailer of their upcoming film 'Jabariya Jodi'

Produced by Balaji Telefilms and Karma Media & Entertainment production, Jabariya Jodi releases on August 2, 2019.


Just a day after the release of the first official poster and the teaser, the makers have released the trailer of Sidharth Malhotra and Parineeti Chopra's upcoming film, Jabariya Jodi. Since its announcement, the movie has been garnering a lot of attention from the audience as the announcement promises a rustic and unique wedding on big screens. 

'Jabariya Jodi' is based on a real-life practice that is prevalent in Bihar and in some parts of Uttar Pradesh. The concept here is that eligible grooms are kidnapped by the bride's family and are forced to get married in order to avoid paying dowry. Since marriage is considered to be sacred, it is highly unlikely that the grooms would try to get the marriages annulled. The practice has been around for decades and Jabariya Jodi takes an interesting, quirky take on the concept of Pakadwa Shaadi or 'Jabariya Shaadi.' 

Talking about the same, Parineeti Chopra, said "After Hasee Toh Phasee, we (Sid and I) wanted to come back together for a different script. So, when Sidharth got to know, he told me to talk to Ekta. This is very different from what we have done before, as it is an interesting story with a message, where the plot revolves around the concept of Dowry pertaining to Bihar."

The Prashant Singh directorial is shot at real locations in Uttar Pradesh to give the right flavour and will witness Sidharth Malhotra essay a rustic character, for the first time ever with Parineeti Chopra. The due is reuniting to deliver a one of its kind love story to the audience. 

Adding to the same, Sidharth Malhotra, said, "Our writer understood the concept in Bihar, and then we met some people with real-life stories. We got to know a lot from them, and we have tried to incorporate that in the film. The writing has an interesting flavour, which is funny and has a typical tone from Patna."

The film also stars the varied powerhouses of talent such as Aparshakti Khurana, Sanjay Mishra, Neeraj Sood, Gopal Dutt, Javed Jaffrey, and Chandan Roy Sanyal. With a stellar cast, the movie is set to take over as a new love saga. 

Makers wanted to release the film earlier this year, but they couldn't complete the shoot due to weather conditions. However, it is believed that the film will be loved by the audience. Produced by Shobha Kapoor, Ekta Kapoor, and Shailesh R Singh, Jabariya Jodi is a Balaji Telefilms and Karma Media & Entertainment production and releases on August 2, 2019.
