The shooting for the movie ‘Half Girlfriend’ has started from yesterday. This film is based on Chetan Bhagat’s well-famed novel by Chetan Bhagat, who is also the co-producer of this movie. ‘Half Girlfriend’ the novel got famous with no time and the moment it got famous the speculation of making a film out of its plot got prominent. But due to some or the other reason the shooting got delayed. The film was originally meant to release in October 2015. But the casting issue took so much time to start the movie.There was a news of Sushant Singh Rajput was finalised for the male lead. But the actor turns down the project showing date issues. Then the project was taken to Arjun Kapoor. The female lead too,takesa long time to settle and now according to the news; Shraddha Kapoor will play the role of ‘Riya’ the female lead.
Mohit Suri is all set to start the movie. Chetan is no doubt in great relief to see his movie is finally getting on the floor. Her happiness and enthusiasm were all visible in his tweeter post:
“Hi Guys, meet Madhav Jha. ‘Half Girlfriend’ starts shoot today in Delhi. ATB Mohit Suri, Arjun Kapoor, Shraddha Kapoor.”
