Directed by Prashant Singh, Jabariya Jodi is co-presented by Balaji Telefilms and Karma Media Entertainment.
Sidharth and Parineeti had earlier shared screen space in the 2014 film Hasee Toh Phasee.
Sanjeev K Jha, film’s writer, said, “It’s a rom-com around forced weddings that happen in Bihar and some other parts of the country. I was surprised to find the crime record bureau’s data which said that more kidnappings for marriage took place in Bihar than for ransom in recent years. This may seem funny initially but they’re equally tragic.”
Sidharth was last seen in Aiyaary in which he played a rogue agent. The film also featured Manoj Bajpayee and failed to find any resonance at the box office. On the other hand, Parineeti last featured in Golmaal Again.
The release date of Jabariya Jodi hasn’t been announced yet.
