Jabariya Jodi, Ekta Kapoor’s upcoming film, has already piqued the interest of the audience thanks to its wacky title. If you are wondering who would have come up with such a madcap name then we tell you that it’s none other than actor Sidharth Malhotra who stars in the film.

While one would assume Jabariya to mean something ‘fantastic’, the actual meaning of the title is ‘forced couple’.

The film Jabariya Jodi presents an interesting take on Bihar’s ‘pakadwa vivaah’ (kidnapping the groom to get him forcibly married).

The first look posters of the film have garnered a warm response from the audience creating great excitement for the flick.

On August 20, Sidharth Malhotra took to Twitter and shared the posters of the film and went on to introduce the characters. “Here are Abhay n Babli an anokhi and desi jodi! Presenting #JabariyaJodi,” the tweet read.

Starring Aparshakti Khurrana as Parineeti Chopra’s friend, Sanjay Mishra as her father, Neeraj Sood as her father’s friend, Gopal Dutt as an inspector, Javed Jaffrey as Sidharth Malhotra’s father and Chandan Roy Sanyal as his friend, Jabariya Jodi promises captivating performances by the entire cast along with the leading duo, Parineeti and Siddharth.

Produced by Ekta Kapoor under the banner of Balaji Motion Pictures and Shailesh Singh’s Karma Media Net, Jabariya Jodi, directed by Prashant Singh, is slated to release next year.
