Sidharth Malhotra and Parineeti Chopra are returning on the big screen with Jabariya Jodi after Hasee Toh Phasee (2014). Directed by debutant Prashant Singh, Jabariya Jodi, is based on the rampant practice of groom kidnapping in Bihar. Last evening Sidharth and Parineeti launched a new song Zilla Hilela at a theatre in Mumbai, where the actors were asked about the pressure of returning again on the big screen. Sidharth said, “We have to create a new magic jisko dekh kar aap pani-pani ho jayein. And this credit will go to our director ki hum itne saalon baad jab ek film mein aa rahe hain to humein ek naye tarike se dikhaya jaye. It’s a love story but jo lehza hai aur jo characters hain, humne pehle kabhi nahin kiye hain. So, we are hoping that all the people who loved SidNeeti, unko es picture mein aur bhi zyada maza aayega. It is SidNeeti on steroids.”
Adding to Sidharth’s answer Parineeti said, “Honestly, before the trailer launch I was worried, I don’t know if you were worried. I was a little stressed because this is totally a new world and we didn’t know that Hasee Toh Phasee lovers will accept us like this or not. But now we are actually really excited and motivated with the trailer response. Because the kind of feedback we are getting is really positive so now our fingers and legs and arms everything is crossed.”
Produced by Ekta Kapoor and Shaailesh R Singh, Jabariya Jodi is slated to release on August 2.
