Arjun Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor’s ‘Half Girlfriend’ reminds you of ‘Aashiqui 2’! – Half Girlfriend first poster out: Arjun Kapoor – Shraddha Kapoor portray the ‘relationship status’ India needs!
Aashiqui 2 and Half Girlfriend posters
Mohit Suri’s next – ‘Half Girlfriend’, an adaptation of Chetan Bhagat’s best selling 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.
The team has launched the first poster featuring the leading pair and it gives us Aashiqui feels. Maybe, it’s the rain setting that gives us a sense of déjà vu!. But the highlight of the poster is the catchline – ‘Dost se Zyada, Girfriend se kam’ which also means that the film will explore a space in relationships that exists but has not been talked about in a film.

‘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 girl friend. Hence, Half Girlfriend was born,” says Chetan Bhagat, whose previous book ‘2 States’, was a blockbuster on screen as well.
“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 Villain.” adds director Mohit Suri.
With three creative forces Mohit, Chetan and Ekta coming together for this musical romance, the anticipation around the film and its music is extremely high. Directed by Mohit Suri, Produced by Balaji Motion Pictures, Mohit Suri and Chetan Bhagat, Half Girlfriend releases on May 19.
