Sidharth Malhotra and Parineeti Chopra are all set to reunite for 'Jabariya Jodi' after the success of their previous collaboration 'Hasee Toh Phasee' which was produced by Karan Johar's Dharma Productions and Anurag Kashyap's Phantom Films. The film was earlier titled 'Shotgun Shaadi' and is reportedly based on 'pakadwa vivaah' which is why the makers decided to change the title of the movie to 'Jabariya Jodi'.
While making an official announcement of the film, Sidharth took to social media to share a video and said, "Surprise Party Sune ho? ...yeh surprise shaadi hai ! Excited to announce my next film #JabariyaJodi with @parineetichopra @ektaravikapoor @RuchikaaKapoor @ShaileshRSingh @KarmaMediaEnt @balajimotionpic."
The movie is helmed by Prashant Singh and the film 'Jabariya Jodi' is co-presented by Balaji Telefilms and Karma Media Entertainment. Ekta Kapoor also shared a snap of the clapboard on twitter, she captioned it, "Filming begins for @ParineetiChopra and @S1dharthM starrer "Jabariya Jodi". #JabariyaJodi #ShootBegins @balajimotionpic @ShaileshRSingh @RuchikaaKapoor".
Interestingly, the title of the film was recommended by Siddharth himself. As per reports, the actor came across this word while reading something and shared the idea with the team who instantly liked the idea. Reports suggest that Sidharth will depict the role of a thug. Reports suggest that the film will be shot in Uttar Pradesh and then in Bihar. The film is a rom-com and will highlight the practice of 'Pakadwa Vivaah' which is common in Bihar where the groom is kidnapped and is forcefully married to the girl. While Siddharth and Parineeti have already started shooting for the film, the duo has earlier shared screen space in the 2014 romantic comedy 'Hasee Toh Phasee' where they were lauded for their cute chemistry.
Meanwhile, Parineeti has wrapped up her project 'Namaste England' opposite Arjun Kapoor. The actress is also a part of the Akshay Kumar starrer 'Kesari' and 'Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar'. Siddharth Malhotra will next be seen in the biopic on Kargil hero Captain Vikram Batra which will be produced by Dharma Productions. Karan Johar earlier made the official announcement on his Twitter account.
