Sidharth Malhotra, Parineeti Chopra escalate from ‘Shotgun Shaadi’ to ‘Jabariya Jodi’


Post giving a hit movie Hasee to Phasee, fans are excited as Parineeti Chopra and Sidharth Malhotra reunite for another project. Earlier, it was reported that the duo will be seen in Shotgun Shaadi but the makers have decided to re-christen it as Jabariya Jodi. The film revolves around a love story based on the concept of groom kidnapping, as per a report by DNA.

The daily quoted their source stating, “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 was initially titled Shotgun Shaadi. But the Baar Baar Dekho star was instrumental in coming up with the new name. “He came across this word during the readings and told the team about it. They liked it instantly,” the source added.

Television mogul Ekta Kapoor’s production house Balaji Telefilms is backing Jabariya Jodi. “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 told DNA.

Apart from Jabariya Jodi, Sidharth will be seen in the Vikram Batra biopic, co-produced by Dharma Productions, while Parineeti has also bagged a few movies including Kesari with Akshay Kumar, Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar with Arjun Kapoor and also, Namaste England.
