Mohit Suri‘s next Half Girlfriend, an adaptation of Chetan Bhagat’s bestselling novel by the same name sets out to explore the ‘in-between’ space in relationships today. For the first time, Arjun Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor star opposite each other in this intense-musical romance. “As I observe young people, I saw a lot of situations where people were more than friends but not quite in a Relationship. When you find someone special but you are not yet fully together. I felt there was something needed between a friend and girlfriend. Hence, Half Girlfriend was born”, says Chetan Bhagat, whose previous screen adaptation 2 States, was a blockbuster.
“A love that may be somewhere in between, but a love that still is unconditional. It’s a take on the unexplored, Grey area of relationships today. What also makes it special is a collaboration between me and Ekta after Ek Villian,” adds director Mohit Suri.
Directed by Mohit Suri, produced by Balaji Motion Pictures, Mohit Suri and Chetan Bhagat, Half Girlfriend releases on May 19, 2017.
