Parineeti Chopra and Sidharth Malhotra are all set to reunite for another project. The fans of the cult hit Hasee to Phasee would wish it was a sequel to the movie, but the premise of the new project sounds even more interesting. Jabariya Jodi is the new title of their movie and it is a love story based on the concept of groom kidnapping, as per a report by DNA.
The news daily quoted their 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 was initially titled Shotgun Shaadi. But Sidharth 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.
Ekta Kapoor's production house 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.
