Shocking: ‘Jabariya Jodi’ director Prashant Singh gets threat calls to not promote the film
Sidharth Malhotra and Parineeti Chopra are on a promotional spree as both of them were recently spotted in Delhi promoting their upcoming film ‘Jabariya Jodi‘. Considering the film’s realistic subject, director Prashant Singh is getting threat calls from the real ‘baahubalis’ of the nation.
Prashant Singh hails from the heartland so he knows a lot about the powerful people who are in the business of groom kidnapping. Prashant himself has crafted Sidharth’s (Malhotra) style – be it his dressing style or the dialect. Most of the film’s elements have been inspired by real-life ‘baahubalis’. But, despite the threats, the makers are determined to release it in the heartland.
The upcoming Sidharth-Parineeti starrer ‘Jabariya Jodi‘ is making quite a buzz. The quirky trailer promises lots of fun and the theme of the film is ‘jabariya vivaah’ (forced marriage).
Apparently, the film is based on real-life couples and real-life groom kidnappers from parts of Bihar and Uttar Pradesh. The topic has been dealt with in the most sensitive and fun manner possible. However, it has not gone down well with the real ‘baahubalis’ (strongmen) in these areas. They have reached out to Prashant Singh and asked him not to promote the film.
Prashant got threat calls immediately after the trailer launch. Unknown people are constantly calling him and asking him to avoid promoting the film. They want to stop the release even. The ‘baahubalis’ are feeling insecure and scared of being exposed.
Produced by Shobha Kapoor, Ekta Kapoor and Shailesh R Singh, the film is slated to hit the screens on August 9, 2019.
