Chetan Bhagat recently launched his much awaited book Half Girlfriend, and even before the book was launched, it was decided that it will be made into a Bollywood screenplay. Directed by Mohit Suri, the Bollywood adaptation will also see Bhagat debut as a producer!
Major speculation is rife that Kriti Sanon has been roped in to play the female lead of the film. While the buzz was that Alia Bhatt was also a strong contender for this role, I thought Sanon showed enough promise in her debut Heropanti to be bagging a role this crucial. More power to her!
Not very long ago, Ranveer Singh and Ranbir Kapoor‘s names emerged as the male leads of the film. While they both seem to be unavailable for the project, a new name is doing the rounds as the possible protagonist for Half Girlfriend. It’s none other than Varun Dhawan! However, Dhawan is also being looked at to be roped in a Bruce Lee biopic by debutant directer Vasan Bala (who has co-written Anurag Kashyap‘s Bombay Velvet and assisted him in DevD).
So whether Varun agrees to be a part of the project is something we’ll have to wait and see. They are all interesting choices, after all!
However, if things work out, we think the Kriti-Varun pair will be something to look out for.
