You guys probably know that Mohit Suri will be directing the movie based on Chetan Bhagat’s ‘Half Girlfriend’. And right he is going through a big dilemma!
According to the reports of DNA, the top two contenders for the role of the female lead are Deepika Padukone and Katrina Kaif. According to sources, “Deepika has been approached for the female lead. It is a coming- of-age romcom set in rural Bihar, Patna, New York and New Delhi and revolves around a Bhojpuri-speaking Bihari boy and a rich, beautiful Delhi girl whom he’s fallen in love with. The girl agrees to be his ‘half girlfriend’, but later, gets married and divorced. How they finally come together in New York and get married is what the story is about. As the girl comes from an elite, polished background both Deepika and Katrina suit the role. Deepika has an edge in many ways — firstly, in terms of performance. Also, the character Riya Somani is from Delhi and Katrina’s still looks more international than Deepika. Mohit is in talks with Katrina about the role in case Deepika doesn’t work out.”
Talking about the male lead, Varun Dhawan was approached but he turned it down citing date issues. There are reports that makers are thinking of Shahid Kapoor.
