‘Jabariya Jodi’ director Prashant Singh is all praises for Parineeti Chopra’s performance in the film, even though she was not the first choice for the role.
Singh shared that he had initially approached Sonakshi Sinha to star in ‘Jabariya Jodi’ opposite Sidharth Malhotra, but the collaboration didn’t work out. “Sidharth was always the first choice for the film; officially we have spoken to him. Before that, there was a stage where we were pitching the film to many other actors, and like any other first-time filmmaker, you have to go around looking for actors, but nothing materialised. What materialised was this.”, he said, adding that, “It would have been nice. She was from Bihar. What do I say, that would have been really nice, but it didn’t work out on a certain level so I would not like to talk about it. But having said that, Parineeti has done a fab job in this film.”, The Asian Age reported.
Working with Chopra was a great experience, Singh said, “It was easy for Parineeti to cope up. She is a magician: She just comes on set and picks up things very quickly. She is a quick learner, and she is familiar with the language so she was close to the dialect anyway. She has done a great job in the film.”
‘Jabariya Jodi’ will release on 12th July.
