Actors Sidharth Malhotra and Parineeti Chopra’s movie Jabariya Jodi has got a new release date after it was earlier announced that it would go on screens on May 17, 2019. The movie, which is a romantic comedy, is predominantly based upon the tradition of groom kidnapping, prevalent in Bihar where grooms are kidnapped in order to prevent dowry and are forced into marriage.

Film trade analyst Taran Adarsh took to his Twitter page to share the new date of the movie that has been directed by Prashant Singh and produced by Ekta Kapoor, Shobha Kapoor, and Shailesh R Singh.

The shooting for the movie had begun on August 20, 2018, and some pictures had been released earlier showing the two in their desi avatar. This is the second time that Sidharth and Parineeti are sharing screen space after having worked together in Hasee Toh Phasee.

The other stars who are part of the film are Javed Jaffrey, Sanjai Mishra, Aparshakti Khurana, Ruslaan Mumtaz, Sheeba Chaddha, Aaryan Arora, Gurket Kaur, and Alankrita Sahai.

The idea for the movie had been conceived by writer Sanjeev K Jha who is from Bihar and was aware that such a practice of forced marriage was prevalent in his state.

Parineeti was last seen in movie Namaste England opposite Arjun Kapoor, and her next screen appearance will be in Kesari alongside Akshay Kumar, and in Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar opposite Arjun Kapoor.
