Sidharth Malhotra, for the first time in his cinematic career, is all set to play a rustic character. The actor will be reuniting with Parineeti Chopra in the plot of a romantic love story, ‘Jabariya Jodi‘.
The film revolves around the instances of ‘Pakadwa Shaadi’, which is a prevalent phenomenon in the northern state of Bihar. When a groom does not say ‘yes’, he’s kidnapped to get married! Taking a light-hearted approach, to an otherwise disturbing practice, the film promises to be a laughter riot!

Jabariya Jodi went on floors in August last year. Sidharth had introduced his and Parineeti Chopra’s characters by sharing the film’s posters on social media as he wrote, “Here are Abhay and Babli, an anokhi and desi jodi.”
Apart from Malhotra and Chopra, the romantic comedy also stars Aparshakti Khurana, Sanjay Mishra, Neeraj Sood, Gopal Dutt, Javed Jaffrey and Chandan Roy Sanyal.
Produced by Shobha Kapoor, Ekta Kapoor and Shaailesh R Singh, Jabariya Jodi is slated to release on August 2, 2019. Earlier the film was set to release on July 2.
