Sidharth Malhotra and Parineeti Chopra are on a promotional spree as both of them were recently spotted in Delhi promoting their upcoming film ‘Jabariya Jodi’. Post this, the duo is to be present at Lucknow today at the much acclaimed ‘Jagran Film Festival’. The film has a very real subject and it is due to this act of him rubbing the real-life baahubalis the wrong way that he is receiving threat calls.
Prashant Singh hails from the heartland, so he knows a lot about the powerful people who are in the business of groom kidnapping. He has himself crafted Sidharth’s (Malhotra) style, be it his dressing style or the dialect. Most of the film’s elements have been inspired by real-life baahubalis. But, despite the threats, the makers are determined to release it in the heartland.
The upcoming Sidharth Malhotra-Parineeti Chopra starrer ‘Jabariya Jodi’ is making quite a buzz. The quirky trailer promises lots of fun, and the theme of the film is jabariya vivaah aka. forced marriage).
The film is based on real-life couples and real-life groom kidnappers from parts of Bihar and Uttar Pradesh. The topic has been dealt with in the most sensitive and fun manner possible, it has not gone down well with the baahubalis (strongmen) in the areas. They have reached out to Prashant Singh and called him asking not to promote the film and objecting to its release.
Prashant got this threat calls immediately after the trailer launch. Unknown people are constantly calling him, asking him to avoid promoting the film and to not even release it. It is probably because the baahubalis are feeling insecure and are scared of being exposed.
Produced by Shobha Kapoor, Ekta Kapoor, and Shailesh R Singh, ‘Jabariya Jodi’ is a Balaji Telefilms and Karma Media & Entertainment production and releases on August 2, 2019.
