Talented writer Chetan Bhagat has been making strong moves in Bollywood with his books which have been adopted into films. After the super success of 2 States, now his next book Half Girlfriend will be adopted into a film with the same name.
Mohit Suri has been signed up to direct the movie which recently completed the pre-production formalities. Shahid Kapoor has been initially considered for the lead role but he opted out of the film due to the issue with his dates.

Half Girlfriend has landed back where it started. Shahid Kapoor will play the lead role in the movie and Ektha Kapoor, Shoba Kapoor will produce Half Girlfriend on Balaji Motion Pictures banner.
