Half Girlfriend movie trailer was released on Monday on YouTube Balaji Motion Picture official channel. After releasing several posters of the film, the trailer of Arjun Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor -starrer ‘Half Girlfriend’ dropped online on Monday morning. The tagline of the film ‘Dost Se Zyada, Girlfriend Se Kum’ is the apt description of the storyline.
Half Girlfriend is an upcoming Indian romantic drama film based on the Chetan Bhagat‘s novel titled Half Girfriend. The most awaited film is directed by Mohit Suri and cast includes Arjun Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor in the lead roles. Chetan Bhagat himself is the co-producer of the film. Half Girlfriend is scheduled to release on May’19 this year.
This is not the first time that Arjun, who will be seen playing the character of Madhav Jha, will be working in an adaptation. He has also starred in the movie 2 States, an adaptation of Bhagat’s book 2 States: The Story of My Marriage. But Arjun Kapoor told that he has not done such a script. He told IANS in an interview last year Februrary “There is pathos and drama in ‘Half Girlfriend’. It’s not just a frivolous rom-com (romantic-comedy). It’s a drama. That film has a journey. It’s a romantic journey and for me that is very exciting.”
Arjun Kapoor, in the lead role of a Bihari boy Madhav, will play the role of a National level Basketball player. Arjun’s been training with the international basketball team from USA to perfect the sport. Shraddha Kapoor will be his leading lady Riya. Half Girlfriend is a love story of a Bihari boy and an upper society girl. Based on the backdrop of how English defines a class system, it talks about Madhav, who wants a relationship with the high society, urban and English speaking Riya, but the girl is not interested in commitment. Hence she becomes his half girlfriend.
Half Girlfriend will be shot in varied locations from Bihar, Delhi to New York.
Chetan in this film, targets middle class students with this brilliant idea having same dream of speaking fluent English but lacking due to one or another reason. Chetan very well knows that it’s still a dream to speak fluent English for millions of students from Hindi heartland. Mohit Suri has given bundle of hits to the bollywood in past also including films like Hamari Adhuri Kahani, Ek Villain and Aashiqui 2. So we can actually hope a lot with this upcoming project too. We need to discover on-screen chemistry between the handsome Arjun and Cute Shradhha.
