The first motion poster of Aashiqui fame director, Mohit Suri’s Half Girlfriend is out and we couldn’t help but swoon over the sizzling chemistry between the lead couple, Shraddha Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor. Releasing on May 19th, Half Girlfriend is one of the much-awaited Bollywood movies of the year. The movie is based on the book by Chetan Bhagat with the same name. The tagline of the film, “dost se zyada, girlfriend se kam” suggests it focuses on new-age relationships.
This upcoming Bollywood movie has been in the limelight ever since the makers announced it. Chetan Bhagat’s novels have always been quite popular with the youth. Keeping this in mind, the makers have roped in two young actors, Shraddha Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor, for the lead roles of Riya and Madhav respectively. The story is about their complicated love story. Madhav is a Bihari boy who falls in love with a modern high society English speaking girl, Riya. The two have almost nothing in common, but love finds a way to blossom in the most unexpected ways.
Just a few days back, Chetan Bhagat, who is also co-producing the film, shared the look of Shraddha from the film. She was seen playing basketball. After a day or two, Arjun Kapoor also shared his first look from the film, where he can also be seen sweating it out on the basketball court. For the first time, we will see Shraddha and Arjun together on screen. This fresh pairing has already been generating quite a buzz and their sizzling chemistry in the motion poster is also appreciated by the fans. Apparently, it is not the first time, Arjun Kapoor is playing a character from a Chetan Bhagat novel. He has also starred in the movie “ 2 States ”, an adaptation of Bhagat’s book “2 States: The Story of My Marriage”.
Shraddha’s Kapoor was last seen in OK Jaanu opposite Aditya Roy Kapur. However, that movie bombed at the box office. Half Girlfriend will be her second movie of the year. Later in the year, she will be seen as Haseen Parkar in the film Haseena, loosely based on Dawood Ibrahim’s sister Haseena Parkar. But for the time being, the actress is busy promoting her next film, Half Girlfriend, which is slated to release on May 19th.
