So, both the actors practiced a lot for the original dialect of Bihar. The writer of Jabariya Jodi mentioned about he was stunned by looking at the official data of forced marriages and Groom kidnappings. He said:
“We always knew such forced marriages happen, but we didn’t know the magnitude of it. I was surprised to see the official data that said that more kidnappings happened in Bihar for the purpose of forced marriage than ransom. It was an eye-opener. It’s hard to believe that such bizarre practices happen in our vicinity even now.”
