Jabariya Jodi: Sidharth Malhotra-Parineeti Chopra film gets new release date

Sidharth Malhotra and Parineeti Chopra starrer Jabariya Jodi has been rescheduled for release on August 2. The film was earlier supposed to hit the screens on May 17, but the release was pushed to July 12, which is the release date of 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 Parineeti Chopra also, it’s a different world and different role,” Sidharth had said earlier.
