Parineeti & Sidharth’s ‘Jabariya Jodi’ Fails To Leave A Mark At The Box Office

‘Jabariya Jodi’ marks the reunion of Sidharth Malhotra and Parineeti Chopra after five years of ‘Hasee Toh Phasee’. Though the film was riding heavy on expectations, turns out the box office numbers did not meet them. The film began on a dull note on August 9, the first day of its release with an opening number of Rs 3.15 crore. Trade analyst Taran Adarsh tweeted about the same –

He analysed that the film needed a miraculous growth on Day 2 and 3 for a respectable total over the weekend. The film did considerably better over the remaining two days of the weekend. It raked in Rs. 4.25 crores on Saturday, and close to Rs. 5 crores on Sunday. This took the total box office collection to Rs. 11.40 crores, which is not a bad number in itself but not a breakthrough achievement for the film either.

Jabariya Jodi is based on the issue of forced groom kidnapping in the Hindi heartland. The practice of ‘Pakadwa Vivah’, which is rampant in the states of Bihar and Uttar Pradesh is at the core of the film. Starring Parineeti Chopra and Sidharth Malhotra, Jabariya Jodi is directed by Prashant Singh.

The film was earlier going to clash with Sonakshi Sinha starrer Khandaani Shafakhana, however the box office clash was averted since the makers of Jabariya Jodi decided to shift the release date of the film by a week. Jabariya Jodi will also face stiff competition from upcoming films Mission Mangal and Batla House, slated to release on August 15.
