Just few weeks ago, Mohit Suri was gung ho about working with Sushant Singh Rajput but the latter had to quit this film owing to the clash of dates with Dinesh Vijan's romantic drama. And now, the makers who were on a hunt for the protagonist have finally decided to rope in Arjun Kapoor. From what we hear, Arjun Kapoor who is also shooting for the reality show 'Khatron Ke Khiladi' has already started preparing for the role and taking Bhojpuri lessons. The film revolves around the love story of Madhav and Riya with linguistic issues as the backdrop.
Also, a couple of days ago we had reported that Shraddha Kapoor has been roped in to play the leading lady in this film. Readers may also be aware that Half Girlfriend is an adaptation of the Chetan Bhagat novel by the same name. Produced by Balaji Films, Half Girlfriend will be extensively shot in Mumbai, New York, London and in Bihar. The film is slated to go on floor in February this year.
