Hence, she becomes his half girlfriend!

Meanwhile, during an interview Arjun Kapoor talked about his character.“Through this film, we have tried to break preconceived notions about Bihar. We always wanted to make sure that people should look at Bihar from a realistic point of view because, in many films, we see that gangster, politicians, IAS, IPS hail from Bihar, but we haven’t seen a solo romantic hero who hailed from Bihar in recent times,” Arjun told IANS.

“So, it was important that the character I am playing should speak and behave in same way. When we were shooting for the film people kindly supported us and it is always nice to see when people shower their love upon us,” Arjun added.

Based on Chetan Bhagat's Novel 'Half Girlfriend', the film faced a tough competition with blockbuster film ‘Baahubali 2’, the Hindi version at the ticket counter.
