Mumbai: The first look of Half Girlfriend is everything romantic. Arjun Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor are set to get drenched in love with their upcoming film.
It is for the first time that the two have been paired opposite each other, and the crackling chemistry between the two in this first look poster is enough to up the curiosity.
The film is based on Chetan Bhagat’s novel of the same name, and revolves around the story of a Bihari boy who falls in love with a rich Delhi girl.
As the tagline of the movie suggests, ‘Dost Se Zyada, Girlfriend Se Kum’, the film will focus on new-age relationships where the pair is more than friends but are not quite in a relationship.

In an interview, Arjun had said that Half Girlfriend is not any frivolous romantic comedy. “There is pathos and drama in Half Girlfriend. It’s not just a frivolous rom-com (romantic-comedy). It’s a drama. That film has a journey. It’s a romantic journey and for me that is very exciting,” he said.
Speaking about the same, director Mohit said, “A love that may be somewhere in between, but a love that is unconditional — it’s a take on this unexplored aspect of relationships.”
The musical romance drama revolves around a small town boy – Madhav Jha played by Arjun, who falls in love with a Delhi girl – Riya Somani played by Shraddha. While the two have little or nothing in common, love finds a way to blossom in the most unexpected and unconventional ways.
