Sidharth Malhotra and Parineeti Chopra kicked off the shoot of their film, “Jabariya Jodi,” in Lucknow in September. The storyline is based in Bihar, where the actor plays a man who has made a business of abducting grooms, with Parineeti as his childhood love. It is an interesting take on Bihar’s “pakadwa vivaah” (kidnapping the groom to get him forcibly married) and Malhotra suggested the interesting name to the film.
However, despite the story being based in Bihar. The makers are shooting extensively in Lucknow in a guerrilla shoot setup since the last two months. Recently, the makers were scouting for a location for a celebration scene for the movie. The recce team was looking for an elaborate park type setup. And that kind of huge space was only possible at the famous Ambedkar Park. One of the biggest parks in Uttar Pradesh and director Prashant Singh was keen to shoot there.
