Arjun Kapoor's HALF GIRLFRIEND turns him into a basketball player

Arjun Kapoor plays a national-level basketball player, Madhav Jha in Mohit Suri's Half Girlfriend. 

The film, which sees the actor romancing Shraddha Kapoor for the first time, goes on floors in the Capital today. Arjun has been training with an international basketball team to learn the moves of the game.

Talking about the film Arjun says, “There is pathos and drama in Half Girlfriend. It’s not just a frivolous rom-com, but it’s a drama. The film has a journey - a romantic journey and for me that is very exciting.”

Half Girlfriend is an Indian English coming of age, young adult romantic film based on a novel by Chetan Bhagat. Set in rural Bihar, New Delhi, Patna, and New York, this is the story of a Bihari boy in quest of winning over the girl he loves. The film divulges the sentiments and linguistic struggles of a backward rural Bhojpuri-laced Hindi speaking boy from Bihar as he enrolls himself at the prestigious English-medium St. Stephen’s College, New Delhi, and falls in love with a "high class English speaking rich Delhi girl". The girl does not admit the relationship but agrees to be his "Half Girlfriend".

Wondering what is the term Half-Girlfriend?? Well, it's a unique Indian phenomenon, where boys and girls are not clear about their relationship status with each other. A boy may think he is more than friends with the girl, but the girl is still not his girlfriend. Hence, the term 'Half girlfriend'. 
So stay tuned as we will be bringing you much more, including the Basketball Diaries by Arjun.
