Release of Jabariya Jodi pushed to August 2
Directed by Prashant Singh, the film is based on Pakadwa Vivah (forced marriage), which was once rampant in Bihar.
The release date of Sidharth Malhotra and Parineeti Chopra-starrer Jabariya Jodi has been rescheduled for August 2.
Originally slated for a May 17 release, it was then supposed to hit the screens on July 12, thus clashing with Hrithik Roshan-starrer Super 30.
Announcing the new release date of Jabariya Jodi, producer Ekta Kapoor took to Instagram and wrote, "Zabardasti release date change karwaya (was forced to change the release date). I did not want release between two eclipses. So when too many releases came on that day, we moved to August 2. See you at theatres."
Sidharth also shared the new release date. "The surprise wedding of the year set to arrive on August 2," he tweeted.
Directed by Prashant Singh, Jabariya Jodi is based on Pakadwa Vivah (forced marriage), which was once rampant in Bihar.
"I think I haven't played this kind of role earlier in my career and for Pari (Parineeti Chopra) also, it's a different world and different role," Sidharth had said earlier.
