Based on Chetan Bhagat's novel by the same name, Half Girlfriend revolves around Madhav(Arjun) and Riya's(Shraddha) close friendship that blossoms because of the love for basketball. Speaking of which, both the Kapoors even got some heavy training in the sport by professional basketball players from the US! We don’t kid you when we say that. A sneak peek of the same too had hit the web a few months back. In fact, apart from basketball connection, the film also explores the love story in the most romantic way. I mean, didn't we all see the picture where Arjun and Shraddha were seen recreating the Kuch Kuch Hota Hai - DDLJ's train sequence.
Talking about the experience working on Half Girlfriend, Shraddha during her recent media interaction said, "Bringing Chetan Bhagat’s words to life has been challenging and so much fun memories, memories, memories! It’s been amazing with an amazing team. Such awesomely passionate talents coming together. This beautiful world of making films."
