Jabariya Jodi is one film which has been creating extreme buzz owing to its unusual content. The Prashant Singh directorial stars Siddharth Malhotra and Parineeti Chopra as it's leads and is all set to deliver a one of its kind love story to the audience- a surprise wedding of the year which is based on the practice of Pakadwa Shaadis.

Our country is known for its immense diversity and that includes a plethora of practices regarding religion, rites and marriages. One such bizarre practice is 'Pakadwa Shaadi translated as 'Kidnapped Marriages' wherein the groom is kidnapped and forced to marry at gunpoint in order to avoid dowry by the family of the bride. It continues to be a prevalent practice in the states of Bihar and Uttar Pradesh.

Speaking about playing such a rustic character, actor Siddharth Malhotra shares with us, `Abhay Singh - my character in Jabariya Jodi, is flamboyant and colourful, so first, it was important to get the look and styling right. We decided to give him an earring, several rings on his fingers and coloured hair. After that, I worked on the accent which is a blend of Maithili, Bhojpuri, and Magahi in Patna. It was a part of two - month workshop. I also worked on it on my own since I had a certain body language to carry through the film`.

The film is shot at real locations in Uttar Pradesh to give the right flavour. Also, the film's concept is very unique and is based on real practice brought to screens for the first time ever and as it is inspired by real incidents, the makers had to be sure with a few facts.

Interestingly, both the writers of the film, Sanjeev K Jha and Prashant Singh belong to the same state so they took to fact and fictionalized the story, keeping it as real as possible.

The film also stars the varied powerhouses of talent such as Aparshakti Khurana, Sanjay Mishra, Neeraj Sood, Gopal Dutt, Javed Jaffrey, and Chandan Roy Sanyal. With a stellar cast, the movie is set to take over as a new love saga.

Produced by Shobha Kapoor, Ekta Kapoor, and Shailesh R Singh, Jabariya Jodi is a Balaji Telefilms and Karma Media & Entertainment production and releases on August 2, 2019.
