Shraddha Kapoor and Arjun Kapoor will soon be seen in director Mohit Suri’s film adaptation of famed Indian author Chetan Bhagat’s book ‘Half Girlfriend’. It had been reported that the filmmaker would stretch his creative liberties with the story and characters of the film. While doing so, Mohit has reportedly gone on to cut the author out of his own story.
Latest reports suggest that Chetan, who played a key role in the film as the narrator, sadly had his part cut out from the film. Director Mohit confirmed the same to a daily saying that he cut Chetan’s role in the film, but insisted that the bestselling author was supportive enough to give him a free hand in directing and scripting the film.
‘Half Girlfriend’ will see Arjun and Shraddha paired up for the first time on screen. The movie revolves around Madhav and Riya’s close friendship that blossoms over their love for basketball. The film is slated for release on 19 May 2017.
