Chetan Bhagat’s Role Cut From ‘Half Girlfriend’


Chetan Bhagat’s role cut from ‘Half Girlfriend’, which is a movie based on his book ‘Half Girlfriend’.

The movie will be directed by Mohit Suri and will star Arjun Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor. According to a report, Mohit Suri had made changes to the characters in the movie, not in complete accordance with the characters in the book.

He had restructured the story and the characters based on his creative thinking and cut a significant portion of Chetan Bhagat’s role as a narrator.

It was a bit disheartening for Chetan to have his role cut out from his own story. However, director Mohit has confirmed the same to a daily saying that he cut Chetan’s role in the film, but insisted that the bestselling author was supportive enough to give him a free hand in directing and scripting the film.

 ‘Half Girlfriend’ is a story about Madhav and Riya’s close friendship that blossoms over their love for basketball. Arjun Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor will be essaying the roles of Madhav and Riya respectively.

The movie will be released on on 19 May 2017.
