Jabariya Jodi is reportedly based on pakadwa vivah, prevalent in parts of India. Pakadwa vivah is a practice in which the groom is kidnapped by the bride's family and forced into marriage.
Jabariya Jodi is Parineeti Chopra's second collaboration with Sidharth Malhotra. Earlier, they had co-starred in Hasee Toh Phasee, which released in 2014. The actors are sharing the screen after a span of four years.
Parineeti Chopra was last seen in Namaste England opposite Arjun Kapoor. Sandeep Aur Pinky Faraar and Kesari are some of her upcoming films.
Sidharth Malhotra is currently shooting for Maarjaavan, which also features Tara Sutaria and Rakul Preet Singh.
