Sidharth Malhotra to romance Parineeti Chopra in ‘Jabariya Jodi’


Ekta Kapoor’s new film ‘Jabariya Jodi’ will star Sidharth Malhotra and Parineeti Chopra. The film was previously titled, ‘Shotgun Shaadi’.

“As it’s 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,” said our source.

Apparently, Sid, who is playing a Bihari thug in the film suggested the title. The informer added, “He came across this word during the readings and told the team about it. They liked it instantly.” Not only this Sidharth Malhotra also ensured that Ekta’s production house produce the film.

“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 us.  

After ‘Hasee Toh Phasee’, Sidharth and Alia reunited for this new film. Sid said, “It’s an exciting film for both of us to come back together as a couple on screen. This movie has a mix of humour and good content.”

“It will go on floors in Lucknow and is a love story based on the concept of groom kidnapping,” Sid informed.
