The trailer of 'Half Girlfriend' starring Shraddha Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor is out! It’s a Mohit Suri-directed film is based on Chetan Bhagat's 2014 book of the same name.
When Shraddha Kapoor was signed on for the cinematic adaptation of Chetan Bhagat's 'Half Girlfriend', many doubted if the actress' slender built would prove to be a disadvantage.
A large chunk of the movie is set in Delhi University's North Campus and the protagonists (played by Shraddha and Arjun Kapoor) are ace basketball players.
Nevertheless, within weeks of training with the National Basketball Association (NBA) coaches, Shraddha could play the sport like a pro.
Director Mohit Suri, who is collaborating with her for the third time after 'Asshiqui 2' (2013) and 'Ek Villain' (2014), vouches for that. He acknowledges, though, it was harder for her than it was for Arjun.
Meanwhile, Mohit Suri has 'eliminated' novelist Chetan Bhagat, who was a key character in the 2014 eponymous novel.
"Chetan asked me to make the movie, maybe because he thought I was the right person to convert the book to a film. (However) I have edited the narrator [Chetan] from my story. So, basically, I have cut Chetan's role from the film," said Mohit in an interview.
This will be the second time Arjun will be seen in Bhagat's book adaptation.
In 2014, He was seen in the film '2 States', an adaptation of the book '2 States: The Story of My Marriage'. The film is slated for release on May 19.
