Video: Arjun Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor promote Half Girlfriend in Kolkata
Bollywood actors Arjun Kapoor and Shraddha Kapoor were in Kolkata for the promotions of the upcoming Bollywood film Half Girlfriend at PVR Cinemas, Mani Square Mall. PVR Cinemas has recently revamped the four screens at the multiplex at Mani Square.
The story of Half Girlfriend is about Madhav, a Bihari boy who falls in love with Riya Somani, an upper class girl from Delhi. They have nothing in common with respect to status and position in the society. Yet love blossoms between them.
Speaking about the experience of shooting the film, Arjun Kapoor said “It gives me immense pleasure to say that we actually got the chance to shoot at the places which has been mentioned in the book by Chetan Bhagat. It was a great experience of shooting the film”.
When asked whether she identified with the character that she enacted on screen, Shraddha said “Riya is a popular girl at college. She is a girl from a wealthy family. People think that she is so happy. But in reality she is afraid to fall in love. Madhav comes in her life and that brings about a lot of change in her. She realizes that the little things in life give more happiness than any riches. I connect with this part”.
Spoofs of films or trolls of films are usually made after the film is released. For Half Girlfriend, this has been done even before the film released. Arjun Kapoor stated that this indeed was helpful for the film as it received great promotion in this manner.
While explaining about the concept of Half Girlfriend, the actor said “The film do not intend to make people go out and ask someone to become their half girlfriend or boyfriend. This is an emotional journey. There are times in life when you become connected to an individual and they become more than a friend to you. This is what we have been trying to show in the film”.
Arjun also expressed his gratitude for the amount of love that the city of Joy has given him. He referred to the time when he was in the city shooting for Gunday with his buddy Ranveer Singh.
The film is slated for release on 19th May.
