New Delhi: Parineeti Chopra and Sidharth Malhotra-starrer ‘Jabariya Jodi’ had a dull start on its first day and has garnered an estimated over Rs 3.15 crores on its opening day.
Film critic and trade analyst Taran Adarsh who put out the estimates said the film needs miraculous growth on Day 2 and 3 for a respectable weekend.
“JabariyaJodi is dull on Day 1… Needs miraculous growth on Day 2 and 3 for a respectable weekend total… Fri Rs 3.15 cr. India biz,” he tweeted.
The film is based on the practice of abduction of grooms (Pakadwa Vivah) prevalent in the Indian state of Bihar. The ‘Pakadwa vivah’ is a practice in which the groom is kidnapped by the bride’s family and forced into marriage.
