Jabariya Jodi Trailer: Sidharth Malhotra and Parineeti Chopra’s film is a hilarious take on groom kidnapping custom
Sidharth Malhotra and Parineeti Chopra starrer Jabariya Jodi trailer is here and it seems a laughter riot! The plot of Jabariya Jodi is said to be based on the concept of ‘Pakadwah Shaadi’ in which the groom is kidnapped in order to avoid giving dowry.
The trailer opens with Sidharth’s character Abhay Singh announcing that in Bihar, people get married in three ways — “Bihar mein teen tarah se jodiyan banti hai babu. Himmat vaalo ki arranged jodi, kismet vaalo ki love jodi aur dahej ke laalchiyon ki jabariya jodi.” In the movie, Sidharth plays a top goon, who can be entrusted with the successful kidnapping of dowry-hungry grooms and then forcing them to marry without any money exchanging hands. However, things come a full circle when he happens to meet an equally badass Babli Yadav (Parineeti Chopra). The two fall in love but Abhay decides to not marry her owing to his political ambitions. And that’s when Babli decides to turn tables and kidnap Abhay for a ‘jabariya shaadi’. The chemistry between Sidharth and Parineeti looks crackling as ever.
The film also stars Aparshakti Khurana, Sanjay Mishra, Javed Jaffrey, Ruslaan Mumtaz amongst others in pivotal roles. The film has been shot at real locations in north India including Lucknow, Barabanki and Raebareli to give the right flavour.
Produced by Ekta Kapoor, under the banner of Balaji Motion Pictures and Shailesh Singh’s Karma Media Net, the rom-com is directed by Prashant Singh and is scheduled to hit the theatres on August 2. The film will clash with the Sonakshi Sinha and Badshah starrer Khandaani Shafakhana.
