Sidharth Malhotra and Parineeti Chopra‘s upcoming film which was tentatively titled ‘Shotgun Shaadi’ has apparently got its final title. The film which is backed by Malhotra’s ‘Ek Tha Villian’ producer Ekta Kapoor, is now called ‘Jabariya Jodi’.  The film directed by Prashant Singh will mark Sidharth and Parineeti Chopra‘s reunion on the silver screen after four years. The duo was last seen in ‘Hasee Toh Phasee’ (2014).

Coming back to the title of their next, a source close to DNA revealed the reason behind such a title. The source said, “As it’s based on pakadwa vivaah, the makers felt that this was an apt name. In Bhojpuri, jabariya means zabardasti, so the title refers to a couple who is forced to get married. The two actors have also shot for the posters before leaving for Lucknow, so they should be out soon.”

It was the ‘Student Of The Year‘ actor himself who came up with the suggestion of the new title. Added the source, ” He came across this word during the readings and told the team about it. They liked it instantly.”

Earlier, when the ‘Aiyaary’ actor was asked about a reunion with Pari by the same daily, he had said, “It’s an exciting film for both of us to come back together as a couple on screen. This movie has a mix of humour and good content.”

Speaking about Malhotra’s character in ‘Jabariya Jodi’, the actor plays a Bihari thug who abducts grooms and gets them forcefully married. On the other hand, details about Chopra’s character are not out yet.
