The shoot of Ekta Kapoor’s Jabariya Jodi, in which Parineeti Chopra and Siddharth Malhotra are playing the lead roles, is finally finished. This film is a romantic-cum-comedy and Ekta had announced earlier to release it on July 12. But now maybe she can change the release date.
Sources say, “Ekta’s movie has been completed. The film could be released on time. But if Hrithik Roshan’s film Super 30 is released at the same time, then Ekta can delay the release of her film. No decision has been taken, but producers of Super 30 are discussing some dates and they can announce a new date soon. After this Ekta will take a decision about release of her film.”
Earlier, the makers of Super 30 had announced to change the release date July 26 on account of Ekta Kapoor’s Mental Hai Kya. The main reason for doing this was that Kangana Ranaut is playing the lead role in Kya Mental Hai Kya. Hrithik Roshan, who is in the lead role in Super 30, did not want a confrontation with Kangana Ranaut.
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.
‘It’s a rom-com around forced weddings’
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.”
Siddhartha 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.
