'Jabariya Jodi based on pakadwa vivah'
Mumbai: Actor Sidharth Malhotra, who has wrapped up shooting his upcoming film Jabriya Jodi, said the romantic comedy film is based on 'Pakadwa Vivah' (forced marriage), which is rampant in Bihar.
On the basic premise of the film, Sidharth said: "It is a romantic comedy film based in Patna (Bihar). It revolves around the concept of Pakadwa Vivah. We have been shooting for this film since last year. We created a lot of things of Patna in Lucknow (Uttar Pradesh)."
He is glad to have collaborated with Parineeti again after Hasee Toh Phasee.
"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. We are really excited for the film and that's why we are celebrating with a wrap-up party of the film. The entire crew has worked really hard on this film and hopefully soon, in a month or two, we might release some content of the film," the actor said.
Sidharth's last released film Aiyaary didn't fare well at the box office.
Asked about the pressure he is feeling with the release of Jabariya Jodi, he said: "We are nervous with every film. We are as nervous and as excited with every film."
On the unique title of the film, the director said: "Since it is based on forced weddings that happen in Bihar and in Bihari language, forced means 'jabariya'. So, that's how we came up with the title of this film."
When Parineeti was asked if she faced any difficulty in learning Bihari for the film, she said: "I think the good thing was that our director knows that world really well and in his Hindi also, there is a little bit flavour of Patna. So, it was really easy for me and Sidharth (Malhotra) because we used to follow Prashant blindly."
